An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for quick acceleration response. An added benefit of the Integrated Starter-Generator is how it can makethe restart process more seamlessly smooth than ever before. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.

A selector on the console lets you vary the vehicle's performance character to suit driver and passengers. DYNAMIC SELECT offers four preset modes: Comfort, Sport, Off-Road, and an exclusive Maybach mode. Each adapts the suspension, throttle response, shift points, and more. Maybach mode emphasizes comfort for the rear passengers by minimizing body motion and gearshifts, making the throttle response more gentle, and disabling ECO Start/Stop. There's also an Individual mode you can personalize.
