Adjusting automatic mode
The system normally operates in auto-
matic mode but you can alter the stand-
ard settings used by the system (air
distribution, etc.). These options are
explained on the following pages.
Automatic mode is the recom-
mended mode of use
In most cases, the automatic cli-
mate control system ensures a com-
fortable temperature in the passen-
ger compartment, while maintaining
good visibility and optimising fuel
The types of adjustments that can
be made are described in the follow-
Return to automatic mode as soon
The displayed temperature values
show a comfort level.
When starting the engine, increas-
ing or decreasing the value dis-
played will not allow the com-
fort level to be reached any more
quickly. The system will always op-
timise the temperature increase or
decrease (the ventilation system
does not start instantly at maximum
speed: it gradually increases). This
may take several minutes.
Generally speaking, unless there is
a particular reason not to, the dash-
board air vents should remain open.

the passenger compartment and is re-

side the vehicle.
Air recirculation allows the external at-
mosphere to be cut off (when driving in

In some situations (air conditioning off,
air recirculation activated, ventilation
speed at zero or low etc.), you may
notice that condensation starts to form
