2006 SRX V8 AWD

So, I understand Sport Mode increases the range before shifting etc. From a stop though, is 0-60 time improved? I saw a few people mention that at WOT, normal drive mode accelerates at maximum speed, but it was a brief comment and I'm not sure if it was based on fact.

Also, just driving down the road normal, if I flick the shifter into Sport Mode, it seems to get a slightly different feel/hum to it instantly - not due to throttle position changes, and I don't think it's actually shifting (maybe it is and it's just very slight and smooth?) Is it something else that the system does?

Thanks!

what i've noticed is when you're doing some spirited driving, and you are cornering with it, it'll hold the gear longer, like when you let up around a corner and punch it, it doesn't have to downshift like in normal mode, it'll still be in fun gear.
