Do not rapidly switch between different temperature settings. Otherwise, the automatic climate control will not have sufficient time to adjust the set temperature.

Temperature of the ventilation

General information

The temperature of the ventilation in the upper body region can be adjusted.

The air flow of the ventilation in the upper body region heats or cools noticeably, depending on the adjusted temperature.

This does not change the set interior temperature for the driver and front passenger.

Adjust temperature of the ventilation

1. "CAR".

2. "Settings".

3. "Climate control".

4. "Heating/ventilation".

5. "Driver" or "Front passenger".

6. "Temperature adjustment".

7. Set the desired temperature.

The temperature is individually adjusted, e.g.

colder toward blue, warmer toward red.
