Introduction

WARNING

Do not place anything on the dashboard. These objects might slide or fall

down when driving and may distract you from concentrating on the traffic

– risk of accident!

Make sure that while driving no objects can enter the driver's footwell -

they could cause an accident!

Stow all devices safely during the journey to prevent them from being

thrown around the interior in the event of a sudden braking manoeuvre or

an accident – risk of death!

The devices may warm up during operation – risk of injury or fire!

Improper use of the power sockets and the electrical accessories can

cause fires, burns and other serious injuries.

The 12-volt sockets also work if the ignition is switched off. When leaving

the vehicle, never leave persons who are not completely independent, such

as children, unattended in the vehicle.

CAUTION

The sockets can only be used for the connection of approved electrical ac-

cessories with a total power consumption of up to 120 watts - otherwise the

electrical system of the vehicle may be damaged.

Connecting appliances when the engine is not running will drain the battery

of the vehicle!

Before switching the ignition on / off or before starting the engine, switch

off the devices which are connected to the sockets - there is a risk of damage

to the equipment due to voltage fluctuations.

Transport of cargo

Luggage compartment and transporting objects

Introduction

When transporting heavy objects, the driving characteristics change due to

the shift in centre-of-gravity. Therefore, adjust the speed and driving mode ac-

cordingly.

When transporting cargo the following the instructions must be adhered to

Distribute the load evenly in the luggage compartment and secure it with

suitable lashing straps to the lashing eyes or fixing nets so that they cannot

slip.

Place heavy objects as far forward in the luggage compartment as possible.

Tyre pressure is to match the load.

In the event of an accident, even small and light objects gain so much kinetic

energy that they can cause severe injuries.
The magnitude of the kinetic energy is dependent on the speed at which the

vehicle is travelling and the weight of the object.

Luggage compartment light

The light switches on/off when the luggage compartment lid is opened or

closed.
If the boot lid is open and the ignition switched off, the light will go out auto-

matically after 10 minutes.

WARNING

Never exceed the maximum permissible load of the respective fasteners,

nets, hooks etc. Heavy objects were not secured sufficiently – risk of injury!

An unsecured dirt or improperly attached load could slip during a sudden

manoeuvre or in an accident - danger of injury!

Loose cargo could hit a deployed airbag and injure occupants – danger of

death!

When transporting loads in the luggage compartment that has been en-

larged by folding the rear seats forward, ensure the safety of the passen-

gers transported on the other rear seats .

80

Using the system

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAUTION

Never exceed the maximum permissible load of the respective fasteners,

nets, hooks etc. - these could be damaged.

Please ensure that the heating elements for the rear window heater are not

damaged as a result of abrasive objects.

Do not place sharp objects in the nets and storage compartments in the lug-

gage compartment - there is a risk of damage to the net as well as the com-

partments.

Put the items in the storage compartments carefully and do not put point-

shaped objects - there is a risk of damage to the compartments.

Heating and ventilation

Heating, manual air conditioning system, Climatronic

Introduction

The heater heats and ventilates the vehicle interior. The air conditioning sys-

tem also cools and dehumidifies the vehicle interior.
The heating effect is dependent upon the coolant temperature, thus full heat

output only occurs when the engine has reached its operating temperature.
The cooling system works under the following conditions.

The cooling system is switched on.
The engine is running.
The outside temperature is above 2 °C.
The blower is switched on.

When the cooling system is switched on, it prevents misting of the windscreen

and windows.
It is possible to boost the effectiveness of the cooling system by briefly acti-

vating the air recirculation system

» page 89

.

Health protection

To reduce health risks (e.g. common colds), the following instructions for the

use of the cooling system are to be observed.

The difference between the outside temperature and the inside temperature

should not be greater than 5 °C.

The cooling system should be turned off about 10 minutes before the end of

the journey.

Once a year, a disinfection of the air conditioner is to be carried out by a spe-

cialist company.

WARNING

The blower should always be on to prevent the windows from misting.

Otherwise there is a risk of accident.

Under certain circumstances, air at a temperature of about 5 °C can flow

out of the vents when the cooling system is switched on.

87

Heating and ventilation

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note

The air inlet in front of the windscreen must be free of e.g. ice, snow or

leaves to ensure that the heating and cooling system operates properly.

After switching on the cooling Condensation from the evaporator of the air

conditioning may drip down and form a puddle below the vehicle. This is not a

leak!

If the coolant temperature is too high, the cooling system is switched off to

ensure that the engine cools down.

tion can occur.

WARNING

The recirculation system cannot be switched on for a longer period of time,

because no fresh air is fed through from the outside. “Stale air” may result

in fatigue in the driver and occupants, reduce attention levels and also

cause the windows to mist up. As soon as windows mist up, turn on the re-

circulation system immediately - risk of accident!

89

Heating and ventilation

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAUTION

We recommend not smoking in the vehicle when the recirculating air opera-

tion is switched on. The smoke sucked from the interior is deposited on the

evaporator of the air conditioner. This produces a permanent odour when the

air conditioning system is operating which can only be eliminated through con-

siderable effort and expense (replacement of compressor).

Note

If recirculated air mode is switched on for around 15 minutes, the symbol 

Infotainment

Introductory information

Important information

Introduction to the subject

WARNING

Only use Infotainment in such a way that you have control of the vehicle

in every traffic situation (e.g. do not write text messages while driving, do

not link or connect the telephone, do not work with the contact list, do not

enter any destinations, do not connect WLAN or SmartLink etc.) – Other-

wise there is a risk of an accident!

Always route the connection cable of the external device such that is

does not restrict you when driving.

WARNING

Adjust the volume to ensure that acoustic signals from outside the vehi-

cle, e.g. the police, ambulances and fire engines, can be heard at all times.

High volumes can cause hearing damage.

CAUTION

In some countries, some Infotainment functions can no longer be selected

when the vehicle is running faster than a certain speed. This is not a malfunc-

tion, but complies with the national legal regulations.
