Driving Vehicle equipment All standard, country-specific and optional equipment that is offered in the model series is described in this chapter. Therefore, equipment is also described that is not available in a vehicle, e. g., because of the selected optional equip‐ ment or country variant. This also applies for safety-related functions and systems.

Start/Stop button The concept

Pressing the Start/Stop button switches the ignition on or off and starts the engine. Automatic transmission: The en‐ gine starts if the brake is de‐

pressed while pressing the Start/Stop button. Manual transmission: the engine starts if the clutch pedal is depressed when the Start/Stop button is pressed.

Ignition on Automatic transmission: Press the Start/Stop button but do not depress the brake. Manual-shift transmission: press the Start/Stop button, and do not press on the clutch pedal at the same time. All vehicle systems are ready for operation. Most of the indicator and warning lamps in the instrument cluster light up for varying lengths of time. To save battery power when the engine is off, switch off the ignition and any unnecessary electronic systems/power consumers. The ignition switches off automatically: ▷ When the vehicle is locked, if the low beams

are switched on.

Driving

Controls

▷ Shortly before the battery is discharged

completely, so that the engine can still be started.

▷ If the engine is switched off and the ignition

is switched on, the system automatically switches to the radio ready state when the door is opened if the lights are switched off or the daytime running lights are switched on. If the engine is switched off and the ignition is switched on, the system automatically switches to the radio ready state when the door is opened if the lights are switched off.

Ignition off Automatic transmission: Press the Start/Stop button again, but do not depress the brake. Manual-shift transmission: press the Start/Stop button again, and do not press on the clutch pedal at the same time. All indicator lamps in the instrument cluster go out.

When in an automatic car wash, for example, ensure that the ignition is not switched off accidentally.◀ Ignition automatically cuts off while the vehicle is stationary and the engine is stopped: ▷ During locking, also with the low beams ac‐

tivated.

▷ Shortly before the battery is discharged

completely, so that the engine can still be started. This function is only available when the low beams are switched off.
