What Are the Volkswagen Driving Modes in Phoenix, AZ?

There are four driving modes in Volkswagen models. These include Normal, Eco, Sport, and Custom. So what is Eco drive mode and how does the Eco mode vs. Sport mode differ? Check out our overview of each driving mode below to see how they work and what having Eco mode means in a car.


The Normal mode setting is the pre-selected driving mode of the manufacturer that sets a standard comfort level and regular driving experience for all drivers. This is also the ideal setting for new teen drivers.


What is Eco drive mode? Eco mode allows you to optimize your vehicle’s energy consumption in Scottsdale and beyond. With this mode engaged, instead of getting a burst of power, the vehicle will streamline the acceleration and horsepower to reduce the energy expended without compromising performance and efficiency. In practice, this means small adjustments (to systems such as air conditioning) to ensure energy conservation.


How do Eco mode vs. Sport mode compare? Well Sport mode is the opposite of Eco mode. This setting uses the horsepower of the powertrain to increase the output for an optimized performance. You’ll also notice an amplified power steering.


The Custom setting is more flexible so you can adjust to the driving experience you want on Cave Creek roads. This allows you to be able to adjust the steering, drive system, adaptive cruise control, adaptive front lighting, and climate control. Whether you’re staying close to home or road-tripping far from Paradise Valley, you can drive comfortably.
