ECO

Select the ECO driving mode to modify the vehicle's settings to help reduce fuel consumption and to encourage a more efficient driving style. For example, the energy consumption of the climate and comfort features is reduced and the accelerator pedal response is adjusted.

Selecting the ECO driving mode may automatically change some of the settings for the climate and comfort features. Deselecting the ECO driving mode and manual operation of each feature, cancels the automatic changes.

The possible automatic changes are as follows:

  • The heated seats are switched off.

  • The climate seats are switched off.

  • The heated steering wheel is switched off.

  • The heated windscreen does not automatically switch on when the engine is started, if configured to switch on via the CLIMATE SETTINGS menu. See KLIMAEINSTELLUNGEN.

  • The auto blower speed is set to low, if currently set to a high speed.

  • The audio volume may also be adjusted if it is currently set to a high volume.

NOTES

The ECO driving mode may also make subtle changes to the rate of the cabin's air recirculation and to the level of heating or cooling.

NOTES

The availability of some features is dependent on the specification of the vehicle.

When the ECO driving mode is selected, the instrument panel displays an instantaneous driving style rating.

The current driving style is compared against the ECO driving mode system's recommended driving style.

The ECO data system provides a number of features that provide extra vehicle efficiency data and guidance. The Eco Data menu is accessed via the touchscreen's EXTRA FEATURES menu. See SONDERFUNKTIONEN.

NOTES

The Eco data features only begin recording data after the vehicle has travelled at least 1 km.

NOTES

The Eco data features only monitor the driver's manual inputs, e.g., accelerator pedal and brake pedal inputs. Any automatic inputs from the vehicle, e.g., operation of the accelerator pedal and brake pedal via the vehicle's cruise control system are not measured. Any data not being measured and recorded displays grey in the instrument panel display.
