AI-SHIFT automatically selects the suitable gear according to driver performance and driving conditions. AI-SHIFT automatically operates when the shift lever is in the D position. When driving downhill, there may be cases where the vehicle shifts down automatically to obtain engine braking. As a result of the downshifting, the engine speed may increase.

■When driving with the cruise control system (if equipped)

Engine braking will not occur when downshifting from D. (→P. 158)

■If the shift lever cannot be shifted from P

→P. 328
