ECO PROGRAM

Select the ECO driving program to modify the vehicle's settings to help reduce fuel consumption and to encourage a more efficient driving style. For example, the accelerator pedal response is adjusted.

Press the ECO button, located on the center console, to switch the ECO driving program on or off. The instrument panel displays a confirmation message to confirm selection.

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

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

Selecting the ECO driving program may automatically change some of the settings for the heating and ventilation system. Deselecting the ECO driving program or the manual adjustment of each feature, overrides 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 when the engine is started, if configured to switch on via the CLIMATE SETTINGS menu. See AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL.

  • 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 program may also make subtle changes to the rate of the cabin's heating or cooling, and also the amount of air recirculation.

NOTES

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

The ECO data feature consists of various information display screens that provide extra vehicle efficiency data and guidance. The ECO DATA menu is accessed via the touchscreen's EXTRA FEATURES menu. See EXTRA FEATURES.

NOTES

The ECO data feature only begins recording data after the vehicle the vehicle has traveled at least 0.6 miles (1 km).

NOTES

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