Audio settings

Updated 7/23/2018

The audio system is preset for optimal sound reproduction, but can be adapted according to needs.

The volume is normally adjusted with the volume control below the centre display or with the right-hand steering wheel keypad.

Setting for optimal sound reproduction

The audio system is pre-calibrated for optimum sound reproduction by means of digital signal processing. This calibration takes into account loudspeakers, amplifiers, passenger compartment acoustics, listener position, etc., for each combination of car model and audio system. There is also a dynamic calibration that takes into account the setting of the volume control and vehicle speed.

Audio settings are described in the corresponding section in the owner information. To access the settings, open the top view and tap on SettingsSound.

Active noise reduction

Applies to certain car models.

The car is equipped with an active noise reduction function that suppresses engine noise in the passenger compartment via the audio system. Microphones in the car's roof detect disruptive noise and the audio system outputs anti-noise in order to dampen the noise.

Do not cover the car's microphones; otherwise a rumbling sound from the audio system may be produced.
