Ease of use and comfort

Adjusting the height of the 

head restraint

The headrest has a frame with notches 
which prevents it from lowering; this is a 
safety device in case of impact.

The adjustment is correct when the 

upper edge of the headrest is level with 

the top of the head.

Never drive with the head restraints 
removed; they must be fitted and correctly 
adjusted.

those with sensitive skin.
There is a risk of burns for people whose 
perception of heat is impaired (illness, 
taking medication, etc.).
There is a risk of overheating the system if 
material with insulating properties is used, 
such as cushions or seat covers.
Do not use the system:

Recommendations for heating, ventilation and air conditioning

In order for these systems to be fully 
effective, follow the operation and 
maintenance guidelines below :
F

  To ensure that the air is distributed 

evenly, keep the external air intake 
grilles at the base of the windscreen, the 
nozzles, the vents, the air outlets and 
the air extractor located in the back free 
from obstructions.

F

  Operate the air conditioning system for 

at least 5 to 10 minutes, once or twice a 
month to keep it in perfect working order.

F

  Ensure that the passenger compartment 

filter is in good condition and have the 
filter elements replaced regularly.

We recommend the use of a combined 
passenger compartment filter. Thanks to 
its special active additive, it contributes 
to the purification of the air breathed by 
the occupants and the cleanliness of the 
passenger compartment (reduction of 
allergic symptoms, bad odours and greasy 
deposits).
F

  To ensure the correct operation of the 

air conditioning system, you are also 
advised to have it checked regularly 
as recommended in the warranty and 
maintenance record.

F

  If the system does not produce cold air, 

switch it off and contact a PEUGEOT 
dealer or a qualified workshop.

When towing the maximum load on a steep 
gradient in high temperatures, switching off 
the air conditioning increases the available 
engine power and so improves the towing 
ability.

If after an extended stop in sunshine, 
the interior temperature is very 
high, first ventilate the passenger 
compartment for a few moments.
Put the air flow control at a setting high 
enough to quickly change the air in the 
passenger compartment.
The air conditioning system does not 
contain chlorine and does not present 
any danger to the ozone layer.

The condensation created by the air 

conditioning results in a discharge of 

water under the vehicle which is perfectly 

normal.

Stop & Start

The heating and air conditioning systems 
only work when the engine is running.
To maintain a comfortable temperature 
in the passenger compartment, you can 
temporarily deactivate the Stop & Start 
system.
For more information on 

Stop & Start

refer to the corresponding section.

Fittings

Sun visor

Provides protection against sunlight from the 
front or the side.

Glove box

It can be used to hold a water bottle, the 
vehicle's handbook pack...

Depending on version, it may have a lid. In this

It houses the front passenger air bag 
deactivation switch.

Removable ashtray

F

  Raise the cover to open the ashtray.

F

  To empty it, with the cover raised, pull the

Ease of use and comfort

USB port

A USB port is located on the central console.
It allows the connection of portable devices 
such as iPod

®

 type digital audio players or USB 

memory sticks.
It reads the audio files and sends them to your 
audio system to be played through the vehicle's 
speakers.
You can manage these files using the audio 
system control panel and display them in the 
screen.
When the USB port is used, the portable 
device charges automatically.
While charging, a message is displayed if the 
current drawn by the portable device exceeds 
the power rating of the vehicle's port.

Cigarette lighter / 12 V 

accessory socket

F

  To use the cigarette lighter, press it in 

and wait a few seconds until it pops out 
automatically.

F

  To connect a 12 V accessory (max. power: 

120 W), remove the cigarette lighter and 
connect the appropriate adapter.

You can use this socket to connect a telephone 
charger, a bottle warmer...
After use, put the cigarette lighter back into 
place straight away.

The connection of an electrical device 
not approved by PEUGEOT, such as a 
USB charger, may adversely affect the 
operation of vehicle electrical systems, 
causing faults such as poor telephone 
reception or interference with displays in 
the screens.
