Pressing the control displays the modes on the instrument panel.

With an electric motor, you cannot select a mode if the READY lamp is off.

With Advanced Grip Control, additional driving modes are available, offering enhanced traction control.

For more information on Advanced Grip Control, refer to the corresponding section.

Whenever the ignition is switched on, NORMAL mode is selected by default.

NORMAL
