Default What exactly does Sport mode do?

As the title says, what does it do on the 407 ST Comfort (2.0 liter, 2008). I know it makes the gear changeover happen at higher revs than normal, and it downshifts faster when applying throttle. But is that all it does?

Ok, so not like some of the Audis and BMW's where it also changes the injection rates and mixtures?

It possibly does but the end result is the same you simply use more fuel my subaru has a sport button on its gearbox and its pointless as it just makes the engine rev higher it is fast enough in normal mode !

I know it's crappy on economy, I'm not saying I want to use it. I just want to know exactly what it does

Not that obvious. On a technical level, it does different things in different cars. I'm curious what this one in particular does.
