WARNING

In the interest of safety, only operate or adjust the system when it is safe to do so.

WARNING

Do not adjust the touch screen controls, or allow the system to distract the driver, while the vehicle is moving. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, causing serious injury or death.

The climate control system displayed is a 4-zone system specification. Some optional features described may not be applicable to other specifications of climate control.

To access the FRONT CLIMATE screen, select Climate from the HOME screen. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  1. Sync: Select to synchronise the front and rear passenger climate settings to the driver's settings.

  2. Air distribution to the front windscreen: Touch to switch on or off.

  3. External temperature display.

    NOTES

    When the external temperature is low enough that ice may be present on the road, an amber snowflake warning lamp illuminates in the Instrument panel. See EXTERNAL TEMPERATURE (AMBER).

  4. Air distribution to the face: Touch to switch on or off.

  5. Air distribution to the feet: Touch to switch on or off.

  6. Temperature display.

  7. Power icon: Select to switch the front climate control system and rear climate control system on or off.

  9. Settings icon: Touch to access the SETTINGS pop-up menu and then select Climate Settings. From this menu, the temperature units can be changed and automatic deployment of the front and rear heated screen function can be switched on or off. Also, the sensitivity of the Air purity and the Auto air flow speed can be adjusted, see AIR QUALITY SENSOR.

  10. Temperature increase: Press repeatedly to increase the temperature (16°C - 28°C) for the front left side of the vehicle. The temperature is displayed on the touch screen.

    On the driver's side only, HI (high) or LO (low) can be selected.

  11. SYNC: Press to synchronise the driver and front passenger climate zone settings. On vehicles with rear climate control, press to select AUTO mode (see 16) for the left side.

  12. Heated windscreen: Press to switch on or off. If left switched on, it deactivates after a timed period, dependent on the outside temperature.

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

    CAUTION

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

    NOTES

    The heated windscreen and rear screen operate only when the engine is running.

    NOTES

    In cold ambient conditions, the front and rear screen heaters switch on automatically when the engine is started. This function can be switched on or off via Climate Settings.

  14. Press to access the FRONT CLIMATE screen on the touch screen.

  15. Press to select the heated or climate seat screen on the touch screen. See HEATED SEATS and CLIMATE SEATS.

  16. AUTO mode: Press to switch fully automatic mode on. Dependent on the vehicle’s specification, the various options for AUTO mode can be set via the CLIMATE SETTINGS menu screen.

    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 touch screen.

  20. MAX A/C: Press to switch the maximum A/C mode on or off.

  21. Blower increase: Press to increase the blower speed.

    NOTES

    Blower speed is automatically set in AUTO mode. Adjusting the blower speed cancels AUTO mode.

  22. Blower decrease: Press to decrease the blower speed.

  23. Maximum defrost: Press to switch maximum defrost for the windscreen on or off.

  24. Recirculation: Select to recirculate air inside the vehicle.

    NOTES

    Prolonged use at low temperatures may cause the windows to mist.

  25. Temperature decrease: Press repeatedly to decrease the temperature for the front left side of the vehicle.

NOTES

Some of the buttons have an LED indicator lamp that illuminates to confirm selection.

NOTES

Some functions are not available on all vehicles.

NOTES

If the climate control system is switched off, pressing an AUTO button or the defrost button switches the climate control system on.

NOTES

Water expelled by the A/C system may collect underneath the vehicle when parked. This is not a cause for concern.
