Toyota Corolla (E210): Selecting shift ranges in the D position

To drive using temporary shift range selection, operate the "-" or "+" paddle shift switch.

When the "-" paddle shift switch is operated, the shift range switches to a range that enables engine braking force that is suitable to driving conditions. When the "+" paddle shift switch is operated, the shift range switches to a range that is one range higher than the current range.

Changing the shift range allows restriction of the highest gear, preventing unnecessary upshifting and enabling the level of engine braking force to be selected.

  1. Upshifting
  2. Downshifting

The selected shift range, from D1 to D10, will be displayed on the multi-information display.

■Gear step functions

  • You can choose from 10 levels of engine braking force.
  • A lower gear step will provide greater engine braking force than a higher gear step, and the engine speed will also increase.

■Deactivation of temporary 10-speed Sport Sequential Shiftmatic mode

In the following situations, temporary 10-speed Sport Sequential Shiftmatic mode will be deactivated:

  • When the vehicle is stopped
  • If the accelerator pedal is depressed continuously for more than a certain amount of time while in one gear range
  • If the accelerator pedal is depressed abruptly and heavily
  • When the shift lever is shifted to a position other than D
  • When the "+" paddle shift switch is operated for a certain amount of time continuously
