Automatic climate control

The system controls the temperature, amount and distribution of the air flow automatically and adjusts them according to the driving and weather conditions.

Pressing the AUTO button once switches on the auto mode.

Note: Avoid adjusting the settings when the vehicle interior is extremely hot or cold. The automatic climate control adjusts to the current circumstances automatically. For the system to function properly, the side and centre vents should be fully open.

Note: The sunload sensor is located on top of the instrument panel. Do not cover the sensor with any objects.

Note: At low outside temperatures, when the system is in auto mode, the air stream will be directed to the windscreen and the side windows as long as the engine is cold.
