General information on languages and voice control
The voice control system has one language activated at a time, and this is the same language as the one shown in the car's display. If the system language set for the car is not supported by voice control, the voice control function is disabled.
The following system languages are supported: English (UK), English (US), Flemish, French, French (Canada), Italian, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch, Russian, Spanish, Spanish (Latin America), Norwegian, Japanese, Swedish and German.
To change the voice control language, you need to change the system language in the car. The change of language also impacts on the car's display texts. If the voice control symbol appears next to the language, the language is supported by voice control.
