To provide a real world example of this....

I am driving home in comfort mode and I enter a long sweeper turn at a highway interchange. I see a bunch of pokey SUVs and trucks littering this sweeper and decide I'm going to play jackass for a minute and carve my way through them on this mile long curve.

I reach down and switch the car into sport mode. The suspension immediately firms up along with the steering and the throttle response. I can now be a jackass and have it be much more enjoyable as well as be "safer" as the car is now in fighter-plane mode.
