Automatic mode

The automatic climate control system guarantees comfort in the passenger compartment and good visibility (except in the event of extreme conditions), whilst 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.

Special note: the highest and lowest settings enable the system to produce maximum hot or cold temperature levels (“16.5°C” and “25.5°C”).

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

Clear View function

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.

W 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.

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

The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.

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

Air recirculation (isolation of the passenger compartment)

This function is managed automatically but you can also activate it manually. In this case, the operation is confirmed by a warning light on the button 7.

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.

To avoid this, air recirculation is disabled automatically after a certain time.

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.

Using the demisting/de-icing function will disable the air recirculation.

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