Kickdown is used to achieve maximum driving performance. Press on the accelerator beyond the resistance point at the full throttle position.

Use in automatic car washes, for example. The vehicle can roll.

When the ignition is switched off, position P is engaged automatically.

P Park

Select only when the vehicle is stationary. The drive wheels are blocked.

P is engaged automatically as soon as the engine is switched off unless N is engaged and, in vehicles with Comfort Access, the remote control is inserted in the ignition lock. Before leaving the vehicle, ensure that the transmission position P is engaged; otherwise, the vehicle may begin to roll.
