Instrument cluster

Type A
Type B (if equipped)

* The actual features in your vehicle may not necessarily be available due to the selected options or regions.

1. Speedometer

  • km/h, MPH

  • The speed of the vehicle in kilometres per hour (km/h) or miles per hour (mph).

2. Tachometer

  • Indicates the approximate number of engine revolutions per minute (rpm).

3. Engine coolant temperature gauge

  • Indicates the temperature of the engine coolant.

4. Fuel gauge

  • Indicates the approximate amount of fuel remaining in the fuel tank.

5. Odometer

  • Indicates the total distance that the vehicle has been driven.

6. Distance to empty

  • Indicates the distance the vehicle can be driven with the remaining fuel.

7. Transmission shift indicator (if equipped)

  • Indicates which gear is selected.

Manual transmission shift indicator (if equipped)

This indicator informs which gear is desired whilst driving to save fuel.

  • Shifting up: ▲2, ▲3, ▲4, ▲5, ▲6

  • Shifting down: ▼1, ▼2, ▼3, ▼4,▼5

For example:

▲3: Indicates that shifting up to the 3rd gear is desired (currently the shift lever is in the 2nd or 1st gear).

▼4: Indicates that shifting down to the 4th gear is desired (currently the shift lever is in the 5th or 6th gear).

When the system is not working properly, the indicator is not displayed.

Dual clutch transmission shift indicator (if equipped)

This indicator displays which shift lever is selected.

  • Park: P

  • Reverse: R

  • Neutral: N

  • Drive: D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7

  • Manual mode: S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7

8. Outside temperature gauge

  • Indicates the current outside air temperatures.

9. Warning and indicator lights

  • Never remove the engine coolant reservoir cap when the engine is hot. The engine coolant is under pressure and could severely burn. Wait until the engine is cool before adding coolant to the reservoir.

  • Running out of fuel can expose vehicle occupants to danger. You must stop and obtain additional fuel as soon as possible after a low fuel warning light () illuminates or when the gauge indicator comes close to the "E" level.

  • Do not operate the engine within the tachometer's red zone. This may cause severe engine damage.

  • If the gauge pointer moves beyond the normal range area toward the "H" position, it indicates overheating that may damage the engine. Do not continue driving with an overheated engine. If your vehicle overheats, refer to More Details.

  • The fuel tank capacity is given in More Details.

  • The fuel gauge is supplemented by a low fuel warning light (), which will illuminate when the fuel tank is nearly empty.

  • On inclines or curves, the fuel gauge pointer may fluctuate or the low fuel warning light may come on earlier than usual due to the movement of fuel in the tank.

  • If the vehicle is not on level ground or the battery power has been interrupted, the distance to empty function may not operate correctly.

  • The distance to empty may differ from the actual driving distance as it is an estimate of the available driving distance.

  • The trip computer may not register additional fuel if less than 6 litres (1.6 gallons) of fuel are added to the vehicle.

  • The fuel economy and distance to empty may vary significantly based on driving conditions, driving habits, and condition of the vehicle.
