Automatic mode

The automatic climate control system guarantees comfort in the passenger compartment and good visibility (except in the event of extreme conditions), while optimising consumption. The system controls the ventilation speed, air distribution, air recirculation, and starting and stopping the air conditioning and air temperature.

AUTO: allows the selected comfort level to be best attained, depending on the exterior conditions. Press button 4.

Adjusting the ventilation speed.

In automatic mode, the system uses the most suitable amount of air to reach and maintain the desired comfort level.

You can still adjust the ventilation speed by turning control 1 to increase or reduce the ventilation speed.

Adjusting the air temperature

Turn control 3 to obtain the desired temperature.

Turning the control to the right increases the temperature.

Any action on a button other than the AUTO button triggers deactivation of automatic mode.

Clear View function

Press the 2 button: the integrated indicator light comes on.

This function quickly demists and de-ices the windscreen, the rear screen, the front side windows, and the door mirrors (depending on the vehicle). It automatically activates the air conditioning and rear screen de-icing functions.

Press button 8 to stop the heated rear screen operating, and the integrated indicator goes out.

To exit this function, press button 2 or 4.

Adjusting the distribution of air in the passenger compartment

Turn control 6. The integrated warning light in the button comes on.

All the air is then directed to the windscreen and front side window demisting vents.

The air flow is distributed between front side window demisting vents, the windscreen demisting vents and the footwells.

The air flow is directed towards the dashboard air vents, the front footwells and, depending on the vehicle, the second row footwells.

ô The air flow is mainly directed to the dashboard air vents.

The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.

Rear screen de-icing/demisting

Press the 8 button: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function enables rapid demisting or de-icing of the rear screen and de-icing of the rear view mirrors (on equipped vehicles).

To exit this function, press button 8 again. Demisting automatically stops.

Switching air conditioning on or off

In automatic mode, the system switches the air conditioning system on or off, depending on the climate conditions.

Press the button 5 to force the air conditioning to stop. The integrated warning light will go out.

Some buttons have an operating tell-tale which indicates the operating status.

Air recirculation (isolation of the passenger compartment)

This function is managed automatically (operation is confirmed by a warning light on button 7), but you can also activate it manually.

Manual use

Press the 7 button: the integrated indicator light comes on.

Prolonged use of this position may lead to odours, caused by non-renewal of air, and the formation of condensation on the windows.

We therefore advise you to return to automatic mode as soon as air recirculation is no longer needed, by pressing button 7.

Stopping the system

Turn the control 1 to “OFF” to stop the system. To start it, turn the control 1 again, then adjust the fan speed or press the button 4.

The demisting/de-icing will still take priority over the air recirculation.

Fuel consumption increases when the air conditioning is being used (switch it off when it is not required).

When the air conditioning system is turned off, the air recirculation is automatically activated according to conditions like vehicle speed to make the air more comfortable. Pressing the 7 button will disable this function.
