Auto Start/Stop Function

When the vehicle stops, e.g. at a traffic light or in a traffic jam, the engine automatically stops, provided all the requirements for the auto stop function are met. In addition, the engine can also stop automatically when the vehicle stops while moving at walking speed. In this way, the automatic Start/Stop function helps to save fuel.

The ignition remains on, even when the engine is stopped automatically. All safety functions continue to operate.


Prerequisites for the auto engine stop

  1. Auto Start/Stop function switched on.
  2. Hood closed.
  3. Brake pedal pressed.
  4. PDK selector lever in position D, N or P or manually selected gear 1 or 2.
  5. Engine, transmission, and air conditioning have reached operating temperature.
  6. The vehicle has traveled at least at walking speed since the last auto engine stop.

The engine starts automatically when the accelerator pedal is pressed or if the engine needs to be started.

Reaction after leaving the vehicle (selector lever position P selected)
If you leave the vehicle after the engine is stopped automatically and when PDK selector-lever position P is engaged (driver's door is opened and footbrake is released) in order to open the garage door, for example, the engine will not start automatically.

Auto Start Stop mode is resumed if the driver closes the driver’s door and presses the brake within 30 seconds after leaving the vehicle.

If any of these prerequisites is not satisfied, the vehicle must be started manually. A message stating that the engine has to be started manually appears on the multi-function display.
