Hyundai Elantra: Drive Mode Integrated Control System / Drive Mode

The drive mode may be selected according to the driver’s preference or road condition.

Information

If there is a problem with the instrument cluster, the drive mode will be in COMFORT mode and may not change to NORMAL mode or SPORT mode.

The mode changes when you toggle the DRIVE MODE button.

COMFORT mode provides smooth driving and comfortable riding.

When NORMAL mode is selected, it is not displayed on the instrument cluster.

  • NORMAL mode : NORMAL mode provides smooth driving and comfortable riding.
  • SPORT mode : SPORT mode provides sporty but firm riding

The drive mode will change to NORMAL mode when the engine is restarted. However, except when it is in SMART mode. SMART mode will be maintained, as selected when the engine is restarted.

If you change the setting of the drive mode integrated control mode, SCC reaction of Smart Cruise Control is also changed. (if equipped)

SPORT mode

SPORT mode manages the driving dynamics by automatically adjusting the steering effort, the engine and transmission control logic for enhanced driver performance.

  • When SPORT mode is selected by using the DRIVE MODE button, the SPORT indicator will illuminate.
  • Whenever the engine is restarted, the Drive Mode will revert back to NORMAL mode. If SPORT mode is desired, re-select SPORT mode from the DRIVE MODE button.
  • When SPORT mode is activated:
    -- The engine rpm will tend to remain raised over a certain length of time even after releasing the accelerator
    -- Upshifts are delayed when accelerating

Information

In SPORT mode, the fuel efficiency may decrease.

SMART mode

SMART mode selects the proper driving mode among ECO, NORMAL, and SPORT by judging the driver’s driving habits (i.e. Economic or Aggressive (Sportive)) from the brake pedal depression or the steering wheel operation.

  • Toggle the DRIVE MODE button to select SMART mode. When SMART mode is selected, the indicator illuminates on the instrument cluster.
  • SMART mode automatically controls the vehicle driving, such as gear shifting patterns and engine torque, in accordance with the driver’s driving habits.
  • Whenever the engine is restarted, the drive mode remains in SMART mode.

Information

  • When you mildly drive the vehicle in SMART mode, the driving mode changes to SMART ECO mode to improve fuel efficiency. However, the actual fuel efficiency may differ in accordance with your driving situations (i.e. upward/downward slope, vehicle deceleration/acceleration).
  • When you dynamically drive the vehicle in SMART mode by abruptly decelerating or sharply turning the driving mode changes to SMART SPORT mode. However, it may adversely affect fuel economy.

Various driving situations, which you may encounter in SMART mode

  • The driving mode automatically changes to SMART ECO mode after a certain period of time, when you gently depress the accelerator pedal (Your driving is categorized to be economic.).
  • The driving mode automatically changes from SMART ECO mode to SMART NORMAL mode after a certain period of time, when you sharply or repetitively depress the accelerator pedal.
  • The driving mode automatically changes to SMART NORMAL mode with the same driving patterns, when the vehicle starts to drive on an upward slope of a certain angle. The driving mode automatically returns to SMART ECO mode, when the vehicle enters a leveled road.
  • The driving mode automatically changes to SMART SPORT, when you abruptly accelerate the vehicle or repetitively operate the steering wheel (Your driving is categorized to be sporty.). In this mode, your vehicle drives in a lower gear for abrupt accelerating/decelerating and increases the engine brake performance.
  • You may still sense the engine braking performance, even when you release the accelerator pedal in SMART SPORT mode. It is because your vehicle remains in lower gear over a certain period of time for next acceleration. Thus, it is a normal driving situation, not indicating any malfunction.
  • The driving mode automatically changes to SMART SPORT mode only in harsh driving situations. In most of the normal driving situations, the driving mode sets to be either in SMART ECO mode or in SMART NORMAL mode.

Limitation of SMART mode

The SMART mode may be limited in following situations. (The OFF indicator illuminates in those situations.)

  • The cruise control is activated : The cruise control system may deactivate the SMART mode when the vehicle is controlled by the set speed of Smart Cruise Control system. (SMART mode is not deactivated just by activating the cruise control system.)
  • The transmission oil temperature is either extremely low or extremely high : The SMART mode can be active in most of the normal driving situations. However, an extremely high/ low transmission oil temperature may temporarily deactivate the SMART mode, because the transmission condition is out of normal operation condition.

    Tachometer

    The tachometer indicates the approximate number of engine revolutions per minute (RPM).

    Use the tachometer to select the correct shift points and to prevent lugging and/ or over-revving the engine.

    NOTICE

    Do not operate the engine within the tachometer's RED ZONE. This may cause severe engine damage.
