ECO PRO and Cruise Control

Despite from the fact that the ECO PRO mode doesn't really make sense, I have decided to give it a try, and in some cases it evens works fine, but I have noticed that it works better when you have full control over the gas pedal rather than when using the cruise control. I would have expected a better integration of the two.

Even the driving assistant is breaking instead of trying the sailing mode first. Are the departments working on those technologies talking to each other?

Any comments?

I only use ECO PRO when I have the cruise control on. I don't like the driving dynamics otherwise.

When the cruise is on in ECO PRO, does the steering revert to Sport?

I don't know the answer to that. I am usually cruising on a straight highway so I haven't noticed any difference.

When you switch to ECO-PRO, ASS turns on.
