Preconditioning*

Preconditioning of the car before driving can reduce wear and energy needs during a journey.

Preconditioning can use direct start or be set via the timer.

The function utilises several systems in different cases:

  • The parking heater*, in a cold climate, warms up both the passenger compartment and the engine.
  • When it is warm, the ventilation cools the passenger compartment by blowing in air from outside the car.

Note

During preconditioning of the passenger compartment, the car works to reach comfort temperature and not the temperature set in the climate control system.
