    It has an eco button. It seems to dull the throttle response, make the cruise control a little more relaxed, and alter some of the climate control operation.

    Mike , do you use the Eco mode ? I know I have a problem with driving most cars , because the throttle response
    is so touchy compared to the Prius.

    Noticed no difference in how the turbo behaves then?

    Yes, I usually use Eco mode. I feel like it's a little easier to shift smoothly, and the cruise control acts smoother too.

    I don't think so. The dulled throttle mapping in Eco mode probably helps to keep the turbo offline for drivers with heavy feet.
