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 1.

Varying 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 6 to increase or reduce the ventilation speed.

Adjusting the air temperature

Turn control 2 to obtain the desired temperature.

Turning the control to the right increases the temperature.

Clear View function

Press button 3; the indicator lights on buttons 3 and 8 appear.

This function quickly de-ices and de-mists the windscreen, the front side windows, the exterior rear view mirrors and (depending on the vehicle) the rear screen. It requires automatic use of the air-conditioning.

To exit this function, press button 3 or 1.

Adjusting the distribution of air in the passenger compartment

Press one of the buttons 4. The integrated warning light in the button comes on.

It is possible to combine two positions simultaneously - press both buttons 4.

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

½ 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.

De-icing function

Press the 8 button: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function quickly de-ices the rear view mirrors and (depending on the vehicle) the rear screen.

To exit this function, press button 8 again. By default, de-icing stops automatically.

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 button 5 to switch off the air conditioning; the integrated indicator comes on.

Air recirculation (isolation of the passenger compartment) K

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.

The system determines whether or not the air recycling function is used, based on the quality of the outside air.

Manual use

Press button 7 - 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.

To exit this function, press button 7 again.

Stopping the system

Turn the control 6 to “OFF” to stop the system. To start it, turn the control 6 again, then adjust the fan speed or press the button 1.

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