Sport mode

Sport mode  - Operation - Stability system - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

The stability system is always activated and cannot be switched off.

However, the driver can select Sport mode, which offers more active driving characteristics.

In this mode, the engine management system monitors movement of the accelerator pedal and steering wheel for sportier driving by allowing more lateral movement of the rear wheels before DSTC is activated.

Under certain circumstances, such as when driving with snow chains, or driving in deep snow or loose sand, it may be advisable to temporarily use Sport mode for maximum tractive force.

If the driver releases pressure on the accelerator pedal, DSTC will also activate to help stabilize the vehicle.

To switch to Sport mode:

1. Press the My Car button in the center console control panel and select My XC60 DSTC in the menu. DSTC in the menu.

2. Unselect the symbol and leave the menu by pressing EXIT.

> This puts DSTC in Sport mode.

Sport mode remains active until the driver switches it off in the menu or until the engine is switched off. DSTC will return to normal mode when the engine is restarted.
