Getting to Know your Honda: ECO Assist™
At Honda, we pride ourselves for our outstanding fuel economy and with the price of gas lately, we know it’s important to you. With Honda’s Honda’s ECO Assist™, not only can you enhance your fuel efficiency, but you can develop driving habits that contribute to your fuel economy with the system’s real-time coaching and feedback.
What does Honda’s ECO Assist™ do?
When used properly, Eco Assist™ will effectively and efficiently improve your fuel economy. When the system is engaged, you will see a halo that informs you of how you are using your fuel. The longer and brighter the green, the more money you are saving.
How does Honda’s ECO Assist™ work?
Eco Assist™ is composed of two basic functions:
- A sophisticated feedback system that teaches you to drive more efficiently
- An ECON button that helps aid in optimizing your vehicle’s fuel efficiency if used in conjunction with responsibly efficient driving practices
Honda’s ECO Assist™ technology can help drivers develop driving habits that enhance fuel efficiency by observing the speedometer background’s response to driving practices. Fuel-saving behaviors like smooth acceleration and braking make the meter glow green. Less fuel-efficient driving habits will cause the meter glow blue-green, while aggressive starts and stops that consume extra fuel cause the meter to glow blue.
In addition to the ECO Assist™ technology, drivers can also engage the green, dash-mounted “ECON” button to further optimize control of the transmission, engine and other powertrain elements to help conserve additional fuel.
