First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The instrument cluster display may, depending on the vehicle's equipment level, indicate which gear should be selected to reduce fuel consumption while the vehicle is in motion.

Key for  :

  1. Currently selected gear.
  2. Recommended gear.

No recommended gear is indicated if the most suitable gear is already selected. The currently selected gear is displayed.

Information on cleaning the diesel particulate filter

The exhaust management system detects when a diesel particulate filter is filling up and aids the filter's self-cleaning process by recommending the most suitable gear when driving. This may mean driving with increased engine speed in exceptional cases   .

CAUTION

The gear-change indicator is only designed to assist the driver and cannot replace the driver's own judgement.

Driving in the correct gear can reduce fuel consumption.

Gear-change indicator display goes out when the clutch is depressed in vehicles with a manual gearbox or when Tiptronic position is deselected in vehicles with an automatic gearbox.
