Overview of climate control systems

Important safety notes

Observe the recommended settings on the following pages. Otherwise, the windows could mist up.

Climate control regulates the temperature and the humidity in the vehicle interior and filters undesirable substances from the air.

Climate control is only operational when the engine is running. The system only functions optimally when the side windows and sliding sunroofs are closed.

Ventilate the vehicle for a brief period during warm weather. In order to cool the vehicle more rapidly, switch climate control to air-recirculation mode briefly. This will speed up the cooling process and the desired vehicle interior temperature will be reached more quickly.

The integrated filter can filter out most particles of dust and completely filters out pollen. A clogged filter reduces the amount of air supplied to the vehicle interior. For this reason, you should always observe the interval for replacing the filter, which is specified in the Maintenance Booklet. As it depends on environmental conditions, e.g. heavy air pollution, the interval may be shorter than stated in the Maintenance Booklet.

Information on heating

Below, you can find a number of notes and recommendations to help you use the heating optimally.

  • Set the temperature control to the middle level. Only change the temperature in small increments.

  • Only use the demisting function briefly, until the windscreen is clear again.

  • Only use the air-recirculation mode briefly, e.g. if there are unpleasant outside odours or when in a tunnel. The windows could otherwise mist up as no fresh air is drawn into the vehicle in air-recirculation mode.

Information on the air-conditioning system

Below, you can find a number of notes and recommendations to help you use the air-conditioning system optimally.

  • Switch on the cooling with air dehumidification function. The indicator lamp in the switch lights up.

  • Set the temperature to 22 corposwgl_2020.png . Only change the temperature in small increments.

  • Only use the demisting function briefly, until the windscreen is clear again.

  • Only use the air-recirculation mode briefly, e.g. if there are unpleasant outside odours or when in a tunnel. The windows could otherwise mist up as no fresh air is drawn into the vehicle in air-recirculation mode.

  • Only use the reheat function until the windows are clear again.

Information on automatic climate control

Below, you can find a number of notes and recommendations to help you use climate control optimally.

  • Switch on the cooling with air dehumidification function. The control panel display shows A/C.

  • Activate automatic mode. All basic functions are controlled automatically. The control panel display shows AUTO.

  • Set the temperature to 22 corposwgl_2020.png . Only change the temperature in small increments.

  • Only use the demisting function briefly, until the windscreen is clear again.

  • Only use the air-recirculation mode briefly, e.g. if there are unpleasant outside odours or when in a tunnel. The windows could otherwise mist up as no fresh air is drawn into the vehicle in air-recirculation mode.

  • Only use the reheat function until the windows are clear again.

  • After long journeys, you can use the residual heat of the engine to heat the stationary vehicle. The control panel display then shows REST.
