Manual Transmission, Clutch
Unsuitable or improperly secured floor mats or objects can restrict pedal travel or hinder pedal operation.
The positions of the gears are shown on the shift pattern on the gearshift lever.
7th gear can only be engaged if 5th or 6th gear were engaged previously. A lock prevents upshifts e.g. from 4th gear directly to 7th gear.
When reverse gear is selected and the ignition is on, the reversing lights come on.
Upshift prompt for fuel-economy-optimised driving
The consumption-oriented upshift indicator A in the tachometer at the right beside the digital speed display helps you to develop a fuel-saving driving style.
The upshift indicator lights up – prompting you to shift up to the next-higher gear – depending on the selected gear, engine speed and accelerator pedal position.
The upshift indicator is only active when "Sport" or "Sport Plus" mode is switched off.
The gear display B in the tachometer indicates the currently engaged gear.
Permitted engine speed
If the red zone is reached during acceleration, fuel feed is interrupted.
Risk of engine damage (overrevving) when shifting down to a lower gear.
