Drive Mode
Volvo provides drivers with the ability to change the driving characteristics via a Drive Mode switch in the center console. For the T5 and T6 powertrains, the choices are Comfort (default), Dynamic, Eco, Off Road and Individual. For more spirited driving, Dynamic changes engine, gearbox, accelerator, steering and brakes for quicker response to inputs. This also makes the supercharger more responsive on the T6, and the start/stop function is disabled. Eco does the opposite, setting everything for the lowest emissions and fuel consumption. Off-Road can only be used at speeds below 25 mph and sets up the steering and all-wheel-drive system for better handling and traction on rougher terrain. Individual allows the driver to go into the menu system and choose each of the attributes — you guessed it — individually.
