[QUOTE=Honva;However, the sports mode would be different. It simply is an alternative program for the CVT that would keep the engine at a higher rpm than normal to provide more torque and hence making the car feel more sportive. It still behaves as a CVT.
This is not correct. Sport mode, at least on my car, mimics a 7 speed auto with "gear shifts". But there's no way to hold specific gears. The manual confirms that sport mode gives a " shift feel".
I wish it was just alternative, and slightly more aggressive mapping without the fake gears.
