Sport Plus
Changing the steering-wheel-mounted selector to Sport Plus awakens this hybrid’s Mr. Hyde. Suspension lowers, shifts get quicker, rpm climbs higher and the sport exhaust goes from silent to full roar. Full throttle results in an exhaust bark at every gear change, accompanied by throttle response that is immediate and strong. If the driver chooses to pin the right foot to the floor, passengers are also pinned to their seats well into triple digits, which does not take long to achieve. In addition to providing maximum performance, Sport Plus mode also charges the batteries; after several miles of enthusiastic driving we added enough juice to permit cruising through town in total silence.
