I apologize if this has already been addressed but I only show engine and steering available for custom drive mode in my ‘19 G70 3.3 RWD - is the suspension option available only in the sport model?

I think I know what the settings more or less mean for AWD, but how is it that sport has more rear wheel bias and comfort less? At least I think that's what occurs. I mean, is it the idea that one might experience more slippage in sport than in comfort? Actually, I'm not sure what the settings are for each of the settings, so I am speculating. I hope this isn't hijacking the thread.:sorry:

From what i have read and felt

Awd -
sport - 20% power to front and 80
Comfort - 50% front and 50% rear
Eco - 80% Front and 20% rear

a car feels more sporty, and fun to drive if it is rear wheel biased- many sports cars are RWD.
So the AWD having the perks of AWD, still feels like a RWD biased car which makes the car really fun to drive and sporty.

unofficially sport +traction off + stability control off is also called as the “Drift mode” - atleast that is what they said in A Kia stinger review!

i drive in a lot of snow. In sport mode, the rear steps out on acceleration. In comfort, the car feels like a 4x4 accelerating.
Did that answer your question?

Correct. Only the sport models have the electronic suspension

Kind of.. I'm not sure why 50/50 is comfort and eco is 80/20 though. I get the drift issue and snow issue... no debate there. I just haven't read that rear wheel is more eco than front wheel.. I may even recall that RWD is MORE economical. I could see Comfort since that should likely give one the best all around traction.
No debate, just curious as to how/why Genesis chose to label them as they did.

Thanks for the response. I thought that was the splits but wasn't sure.

I sometimes set the custom mode to match one of the other drive modes, as I like the associated purple tech background that comes up in the gauge cluster. Wish comfort mode had a little snazzier background.

Would be nice to be able to change the colors associated with each, huh? I like the purple too, but not enough for me to go as far as messing with the settings

Yep- I remember when the mustang redesign happened like 15-20 years ago, one of the new features was you could change the backlight color of your gauge clusters. Simple lighting but we were drooling over it at the time.
