Hyundai Genesis: Driving your vehicle / Drive mode integrated control system

Hyundai Genesis (DH) 2013-2016 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Drive mode integrated control system

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

The system initializes to the NORMAL mode after the engine has been turned off and on.

✽ NOTICE

If there is a problem with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, the drive mode will be in NORMAL mode and may not change to ECO mode, SPORT mode or SNOW mode.

  • The mode changes whenever the DRIVE MODE switch is pressed.

    When NORMAL mode is selected, it is not displayed on the instrument cluster.
  • When the DRIVE MODE switch is pressed for more than one second, the SNOW mode will operate regardless of whichever DRIVE mode (NORMAL/ECO/SPORT) is operating. If the switch is pressed once more, the DRIVE mode (NORMAL/ECO/SPORT) that was operating previously will operate.
  • The selected mode is displayed on the AVN monitor.

ECO mode (Active ECO)

Active ECO helps improve fuel efficiency by controlling certain engine and transmission system operating parameters.

Fuel efficiency depends on the driver's driving habit and road condition.

  • When the DRIVE MODE switch is pressed and the ECO mode is selected, the ECO indicator (green) will illuminate to show that the Active ECO is operating.
  • When the Active ECO is activated, and the engine is turned off and on it will change to NORMAL mode.To turn on the ECO mode, press the DRIVE MODE switch till it is selected.

When Active ECO is activated:

  • The acceleration response may be slightly reduced as the accelerator pedal is depressed moderately.
  • The air conditioner performance may be limited.
  • The shift pattern of the automatic transmission may change.
  • The engine noise may get louder.

The above situations are normal conditions when the Active ECO system is activated to improve fuel efficiency.

Limitation of Active ECO operation:

If the following conditions occur while Active ECO is operating, the system operation is limited even though there is no change in the ECO indicator.

  • When the coolant temperature is low: The system will be limited until engine performance becomes normal.
  • When driving up a hill: The system will be limited to gain power when driving uphill because engine torque is restricted.
  • When using the automatic transmission Sports mode: The system will be limited according to the shift location.

SPORT mode

SPORT mode focuses on dynamic driving by automatically adjusting the steering wheel, engine and transmission system.

  • When the DRIVE MODE switch is pressed and the SPORT mode is selected, the SPORT indicator (yellow) will illuminate.
  • When the SPORT mode is activated, and the engine is turned off and on it will change to NORMAL mode. To turn on the SPORT mode, press the DRIVE MODE switch again.
  • If the system is activated:
    - After accelerating and releasing the accelerator pedal, the gear and engine speed RPM may not drop as soon as in NORMAL mode.
    - Up-shifting is delayed.

✽ NOTICE

In SPORT mode, the fuel efficiency may decrease.

SNOW mode

SNOW mode helps the driver to drive more effectively on slippery roads such as snowy or muddy roads.

• When the DRIVE MODE switch is pressed for more than one second, the SNOW mode will operate regardless of whichever drive mode (NORMAL/ECO/SPORT) is operating. If the switch is pressed once more, the drive mode (NORMAL/ ECO/SPORT) that was operating previously will operate.
