  13. Heated windshield button: Press to switch on or off. If left on, it deactivates after a timed period, dependent on the outside temperature.

    CAUTION

    Do not attach labels to the windshield. Do not scrape or use abrasive materials to clean the inside of the windshield.

    NOTES

    The heated windshield operates only when the engine is running.

    NOTES

    NOTES

    AUTO mode is the recommended normal operating mode. In AUTO mode, the system regulates cabin climate based on feedback from the vehicle’s sensors, helping maintain a stable and comfortable cabin environment.

    NOTES

    When a climate setting is adjusted manually the system exits full AUTO mode, this overrides automatic climate adjustment and delivers only the selected settings.

    NOTES

    The temperatures displayed on the FRONT CLIMATE screen are indicators only. When viewing the REAR CLIMATE screen, these indicators become active and can be changed directly via the touchscreen.
