Yes, I wonder why the US models don't have the Eco mode..? Here in Aus we have Eco, Normal, and Sport. Very intuitive to understand, and as Speed mentioned, the drive to the rear wheels is negligible in Eco, happens just at take off or kick-down acceleration A bit more to the rear in Normal mode, mainly under acceleration, and a constant amount, varying to demand in Sport.good to know...my salesman was new and he apparently didn't know that because he told me it was for fuel economy.
However, I do mainly drive in Eco, because, and as several motoring journo articles have menationed, it is actually a very usable mode, unlike in many other makes, where Eco is a slug. I find in Eco the rate of acceleration, say resuming set cruise speed after a highway slow-down, is about what you would do normally if not in a tearing hurry. Whereas in Normal or Sport, the thing kicks down gears and really belts along to re-reach the pre-set speed, and is definitely not as economical as just normal manual, non-cruise assisted driving.
