What is w & s driving modes


Asked by Jun 28, 2013 at 05:28 PM about the 2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500

Question type: General

4 Answers

Winter and Summer. Winter mode starts off on a higher gear to help with traction, to not apply too much power that MB has.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

some models of MB have it marked as S (sport) and C (comfort). Starting off in 2nd gear (C) is supposed to save a little gas - "they say".
