Mazda 2: Drive Selection

Drive selection is a system to switch the vehicle's drive mode. When the sport mode is selected, vehicle's response against accelerator operation is enhanced. Use the sport mode when higher vehicle response is required such as merging onto expressway or accelerating to overtake.

CAUTION

Do not use the sport mode when driving on slippery roads such as wet or snow-covered roads. It may cause tyre slipping.

NOTE

When the sport mode is selected, driving at higher engine speeds increases and it may increase fuel consumption. Mazda recommends to cancel the sport mode on normal driving.
