Default Green foot on the accelerator icon?

Got on the car pretty hard in a passing maneuver and looked at the dash shortly thereafter. For the first time I saw an icon of a green shoe pressing what appears to be an accelerator, located under the "boost" gauge. It only stayed lit for a few seconds. Have not seen it before or since. Anyone know the meaning?

Itís a notice to reduce speed. The icon is suppose to represent a person lifting their foot from the gas. I see this a lot when the speed limit ahead drops down - the car lets you know in advance to slow down.

Predictive efficiency assist. Basically, it's telling you to ease-off the accelerator pedal (see attached page from manual).

I usually only see it when I'm coasting down a hill and already have my foot off of the accelerator.

LOL! Did you also notice the green battery symbol at the end of the gas consumption scale?

Or just drive with transmission in S. Efficiency doesnít matter then and green foot thing never appears.

I thought that it was to prevent any harm to the turbo or engine. I saw it a few times while the engine was not yet at operating temp. Now I'll ignore it or find the way to turn it off.

If you scroll to the Driver Assistance screen on the dash, it can show you what its essentially warning you about. Usually speed, but also shows if you're coming up to an intersection (doesn't apply to all just some which is strange) or if a round about. Whats also weird is that when its warning about the speed, it doesnt actually show the MPH lol. Guess maybe cause I dont have the Driver Assistance package. But I guess it still kinda usefully to have
