Acceleration indicator Eco 3
This informs you in real time whether
you are accelerating moderately or
strongly.
This is shown by the 3 warning light:
- green: acceleration is moderate and
correct;
- white: acceleration is too high;
- grey: acceleration is high.
Note: it is not possible to simulta-
neously display the driving style indica-
tor 2 and the Eco acceleration indica-

DRIVING ADVICE, ECO DRIVING (5/8)
An overall rating from 0 to 100 is dis-
played to let you assess your eco driv-

ing performance. The higher the rating,
the lower the fuel consumption.
Eco advice is given to help improve
your performance.
With your favourite journeys saved,
you can compare your performance
between trips and the performance of
other vehicle users.
Please refer to the multimedia instruc-
tions for further information.

Once the engine is switched off, you

DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING (8/8)
- In vehicles fitted with air condi-

increase in fuel consumption (espe-
cially in urban conditions) when it is
used. For vehicles fitted with manual
air conditioning, switch off the system
when it is not required.
Recommendations for reducing
consumption and therefore help-
ing to preserve the environment:
- If the vehicle has been parked in the
sun, open the doors for a few mo-
ments to let the hot air escape before
starting the engine.
