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

Activating the system

When the vehicle is started, the system returns to the last programme used.

The system is also functional when parked.

Lift the 14 control to the desired ventilation speed, then on the 11 control to activate the system.

Stopping the system

Press the 7 button:

- the air conditioning switches off automatically;

- the ventilation speed of air in the passenger compartment is zero;

- there is, however, a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.

This position should not normally be used.

Switching air conditioning on or off

The 11 control authorises the activation (warning light on) or deactivation (warning light off) of the air-conditioning.

The system cannot be switched on if the ventilation power is zero.

The air conditioning system is used for:

- lowering the temperature inside the passenger compartment;

- eliminating condensation more quickly.

Advice: to optimize vehicle range, deactivate the air conditioning when the outside temperature is comfortable.

Adjusting the ventilation speed

Press or lift the 14 control to adjust the ventilation power according to the level of comfort desired.

Adjusting the air temperature

Press the 15 button, then use the cursor on the multimedia screen to adjust the air temperature. The further towards the red the slide is, the higher the temperature will be.

When the air conditioning system is used for long periods, it may begin to feel cold. To increase the temperature, press 15, then raise the cursor upwards on the multimedia screen.

Adjusting the distribution of air in the passenger compartment

Press 8 one or more times to select the air distribution. The air distribution selected 6 is displayed on the multimedia screen.

The positions are in the following order:

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 distributed between the front side window demisting vents, the windscreen demisting vents, the dashboard air vents and the footwells.

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

ö The air flow is directed towards the dashboard vents and towards the footwells.

ó The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.

Clear View function

Press the 13 button: the integrated indicator light comes on.

This system quickly demists and de-ices the windscreen and the front side windows. It requires the automatic usage of the air-conditioning or the heating.

To exit this function, press the 13 button again or select the setting (distribution, ventilation speed, recycling) required.

Rear screen de-icing/demisting

Press the 12 button: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function enables rapid demisting/de-icing of the rear screen and the rear view mirrors (on equipped vehicles).

To exit this function, press button 12 again. Demisting automatically stops.

A/C MAX” function

The “A/C MAX” function enables the user to feel the maximum power of their air conditioning system without any constraint or compromise related to the acoustics and the feeling of the air being too cold on the hands and face.

This function involves automatic modifications:

- temperature programmed to fully cold;

- distribution of air to the occupants;

- air flow at its maximum power;

- activation of the air conditioning;

- air recirculation.

Press the 9 button to activate the function. Deactivate ECO mode to make the most of it.


In the event of freezing, manually de-ice the windscreen using a scraper rather than the de-icing/demisting function in order to reduce your energy consumption.

Switching the air recirculation on

Press the 10 button: the integrated indicator light comes on. Under these conditions, air is taken from the passenger compartment and is recirculated, with no air being taken from outside the vehicle.

Air recirculation is for:

- isolating the vehicle from the external atmosphere (driving in polluted areas, etc.);

- lowering the passenger compartment temperature as quickly as possible.

Prolonged use of air recirculation can lead to condensation forming on the side windows and windscreen, and discomfort due to the use of non-renewed air in the passenger compartment. We therefore advise you to return to normal mode (external air) as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required, by pressing the button 10 again.

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

ECO mode

From the MULTI-SENSE menu accessible from the multimedia screen 16 or by pressing the 17 switch, you can activate the ECO mode, which affects the heating level and reduces the vehicle's fuel consumption.

A ECO warning light located under the temperature display on the multimedia screen 16 informs you that ECO mode is activated.
