It's explained in the user manual... There's not a lot more you can add !
At the end of the day, mine stays in normal most of the time, and sport when I have a silly day.

profiles work like this

ECO - motormanagement in ECO more miles/liter, less response on throttle, DSG7 goes to freewheeling (no braking on engine) RPM back to idle ,DSG7 shifts at lower RPM, powersteering is stronger,feels lighter to use, when in Adaptive Cruisecontrol a very slow pickup back to set speed (saves fuel)

NORMAL - everything in normal use, DSG7 is in enginebraking modus when lifting throttle, fuelinjection is turned off when enginebraking

SPORT - quicker and stronger motorrespons on throttle, full use of all horses under the bonnet, DSG7 shifts at a much higher RPM , powersteering is less (feels more sporty , you need a little more force)

USER - make your own settings for engine or DSG7

*If you have active suspension.. I can imagine it's different in different settings, I can not tell, I have the FR sporty conventional suspension.

My 2018 Xcellence Lux has the issue where it will only default to Normal, so I have to manually set it to Eco every time I get in the car.

Has this been fixed in more recent models?

That's normal behaviour, as far as I know....
Unless you have an odbii dongle ;-)

I'd prefer Eco behaviour, though.
Last time I looked, I didn't have an odbii dongle. :shock:

Mines set to sport mode and never changes to another mode by itself. No odbii dongle in use here. 😂

Mine is 2019 lux, and it resets to normal... Must be an FR thing.

Ours is an Excellence Lux November 2018 and stays in whatever it was left in. It's a 1600 diesel manual but I don't know if that makes any difference.

According to the manual every time you switch off the engine and withdraw the ignition key the driving mode returns to normal.
