We think that sitting in traffic is bad enough without knowing that you have to pay for it too. That's why we created Start/Stop Technology, a really simple way of helping you to save money whenever you come to a stop.
Start/Stop almost completely deactivates your engine whenever you come to a temporary standstill and then smoothly reactivates it whenever you’re ready to get moving again.
Once you've stopped, you simply slide the car into neutral gear, release the clutch and Start/Stop technology deactivates your engine. Then, when you're ready to get going again, you simply dip the clutch and the system turns everything back on. If you're driving an automatic, it's even easier; the system kicks in and automatically deactivates your engine whenever you've stepped on the brake and reactivates it whenever you press the accelerator.
Start/Stop technology is available on almost all Volkswagen models. Simply look for it in the description when selecting your engine.
