If you also have a Maruti car, then it gets the mileage increase feature. The name of this feature is Auto start/stop. Let's know how this feature works...
What is auto start/stop feature
This feature is also called idle start/stop. Maruti Suzuki is being offered in all its vehicles including Brezza, Ciaz, Belano, Dzire and Ertiga.
The Idle-Start-Stop feature shuts down the engine when the vehicle is idling for 5-10 seconds.
To understand in simple language, if you apply the brakes on the traffic light, then the engine of the car stops automatically after stopping for a few seconds. This is called the idle position.
