What control methods are available in GRID™ Autosport?

There are three different control methods in GRID™ Autosport. You can change your control method at any time by selecting OptionsControls from the Pause menu (also accessible from the Main menu under Options & Extras).

When selecting your control method, select Show Controls to see the full control layout (including how to use the handbrake and team orders).

Tilt
Tilt controls are enabled by default. When using Tilt controls, you hold down on the right side of the screen to accelerate, hold down on the left side of the screen to brake, and steer by tilting your device left and right.

The Tilt Pro controls are more sensitive but allow for more precise handling. Alternatively, you can fine-tune the Tilt controls to your liking by selecting Customise Controls; your settings are then saved under the Tilt (Custom) option.

You can also enable Mirrored Mode, which reverses the position of the accelerate and brake controls.

Wheel Touch
Wheel Touch controls add an on-screen steering wheel to the game. When using Wheel Touch controls, you hold down on the lower-right side of the screen to accelerate, hold down on the upper-right side of the screen to brake, and steer by rotating the steering wheel on the left (this appears when you hold down on the left side of the screen).

The Wheel Touch Pro controls are more sensitive but allow for more precise handling. Alternatively, you can fine-tune the Wheel Touch controls to your liking by selecting Customise Controls; your settings are then saved under the Wheel Touch (Custom) option.

You can also enable Mirrored Mode, which reverses the position of the steering wheel and the accelerate/brake controls.

Arrow Touch
Arrow Touch controls add arrow buttons to the left and right of your screen. When using Arrow Touch controls, your car accelerates automatically; hold down anywhere on your screen to brake, and steer using the left and right arrows. Arrow Touch controls are only available in Rookie and Professional difficulty settings, and can only be used with Automatic transmission enabled. You can fine-tune the Arrow Touch controls to your liking by selecting Customise Controls; your settings are then saved under the Arrow Touch (Custom) option.

Alternatively, Arrow Touch Pro controls enable manual throttle control by moving both steering arrows to the left of the screen, and adding a Throttle Slider to the right side.

Auto-accelerate
Auto-accelerate is enabled by default for standard Arrow Touch controls and cannot be disabled.

If you are playing on the Rookie or Professional difficulty settings, you can enable auto-acceleration for Tilt or Wheel Touch controls from the main Controls menu.

Throttle Slider

The Throttle Slider allows for analogue control of speed. Drag the slider up and down to adjust throttle levels and release it to immediately reduce throttle to zero.

The Throttle Slider is available for use with all control schemes except standard Arrow Touch, and may be fine-tuned by selecting Customise Controls.
