To provide an indication of the most economical gear position in fuel consumption, Suzuki embeds a Gear Shift Indicator on the Ertiga Hybrid.
How to read it, if the up arrow lights up white, it is recommended that the tooth position be moved to one tooth above it. Then if the arrow light does not turn white, then the current gear position is the most economical right position in terms of fuel consumption.
Finally, if the down arrow lights up white, it is recommended that the gear position be moved one gear below it. The next interesting feature is Guide Me Light. Its function is to guide the vehicle owner when entering or exiting the car in a place with minimal light or darkness.
