Select the ECO driving mode to modify the vehicle's settings to help reduce energy consumption and increase the driving range. 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 the normal 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 windshield does not automatically switch on, if configured to switch on via the CLIMATE SETTINGS. See CLIMATE SETTINGS.

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


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


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

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 EXTRA FEATURES menu from the touchscreen. See EXTRA FEATURES.


The Eco data features only begin recording data after the vehicle has traveled at least 0.6 miles (1 km).


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 gray in the instrument panel display.
