The air distribution and temperature are controlled automatically depending on the temperature in the car's interior and the desired temperature setting including the selected intensity of the air flow.

Switching on/off

Press the button.

The LED is illuminated with the AUTO program switched on.

Depending on the selected temperature, the intensity of the AUTO program, and outside influences, the air is directed to the windshield, side windows, upper body, and into the floor area.

The air conditioning is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

Point the side vents toward the side windows.

At the same time, a condensation sensor controls the program so as to prevent window condensation as much as possible.

Automatic recirculated-air control AUC

Concept

The automatic recirculated-air control AUC recognizes odors or pollutants in the outside air.

The outside air supply is shut off and the interior air is recirculated.

General information

If the system is activated, a sensor detects pollutants in the outside air and controls the shut-off automatically.

If the system is deactivated, outside air continuously flows into the car's interior.

With constant recirculated-air mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

Switching on/off

Via iDrive:

1. "My Vehicle".

2. "Vehicle settings".

3. "Climate functions".

4. If necessary, "Air quality".

5. "Automatic air recirculation".

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated- air mode or defog the windows.

Recirculated-air mode

Concept

You may react to unpleasant odors or pollutants in the immediate environment by temporarily suspending the supply of outside air. The system then recirculates the air flow within the vehicle.

Operation

The LED is illuminated when recirculated-Press the button: The LED is illuminated when recirculated- air mode is switched on. The supply of outside air is shut off.

When recirculated-air mode is switched off, fresh air is directed into the vehicle's interior.

With constant recirculated-air mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

To prevent window fogging, recirculated-air mode switches off automatically after a certain amount of time, depending on the environmental conditions.

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated- air mode or defog the windows.

Adjusting the air flow manually

Concept

The air flow for climate control can be adjusted manually.

General information

To adjust the air flow manually switch off AUTO program first.

Operation

the button:Press the left or right side of the button: to decrease or increase air flow.

The selected air flow is shown on the display of the automatic climate control.

The air flow of the automatic climate control may be reduced automatically to save battery power.
