Can someone explain the different modes on my gearbox

Hello, I have a Mercedes C180 2011 model, it has the 7G tronic gearbox,and the different modes are sport, manual and economic, and when in the economic, and sport, if you flick the gear knob left or right, on the centre console it changes near where it says, like N, R, D and that, to D1, D2, d3 and so on, what are these different modes? Thanks.

Did you check the manual?
I never drove 7-speed, but MB for about 20 years is installing switches for transmission mode. They changed over the years, where some are W/S, some are N/C but generally Winter or Comfort mode starts on 2nd gear and gives softer gear changes. Also hill holding on equipped cars work only on this mode.
