Start/Stop Cuts wasted energy when driving in busy town traffic
Start/Stop Technology. Automatically switches off your engine. Whenever you stop. Which saves you fuel. And Money. Available across the range.
Driving in towns involves a lot of stopping and starting, waiting in queues or at traffic lights. And while your engine is ticking over, it's using fuel. Our efficient Start/Stop technology stops this waste, cutting CO2 emissions and saving fuel.
The Start/Stop system means your car can virtually stop its engine by itself. It works through the clutch, so when you come to a standstill, you just select neutral gear (on manual versions), release the clutch and the engine switches off with a Start/Stop symbol appearing on the dashboard. When you want to move off again you simply dip the clutch, the engine restarts and you can select first gear and pull away. On DSG dual clutch automatic versions it is even simpler; the Start/Stop system switches the engine off once you have stopped and your foot is on the brake pedal. The system can easily be deactivated, if you wish, by a switch within easy reach.
