Peugeot 2008: Ease of use and comfort / Automatic air conditioning

This system automatically controls the activation of the air conditioning system, regulating the temperature, air flow and air distribution inside the passenger compartment.

The air conditioning operates with the engine running, but the ventilation and its controls can be accessed with the ignition on.

The lighting of the button indicates that air is being blown in the specified direction.

It is possible to activate all three buttons simultaneously, for uniform distribution throughout the passenger compartment.

Air conditioning on / off

The air conditioning system is designed to operate effectively in all seasons, with the windows closed.

It is used to:

  •  lower the temperature in summer,
  • increase the effectiveness of the demisting in winter, above 3°C.


  • Press button 4 to activate/deactivate the air conditioning system.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic air conditioning Air conditioning does not operate when the air flow is disabled.

To obtain cool air more quickly, enable interior air recirculation for a brief period. Then return to the intake of exterior air.

Switching off the air conditioning may result in some discomfort (humidity or misting).

Automatic Comfort programme

This automatic mode ensures optimum management of the passenger compartment temperature, air flow and air distribution, based on the selected comfort level.

  • Press button  5 to activate or deactivate the air conditioning system’s automatic mode .

The indicator lamp in the button lights up when the air conditioning system is operating automatically.

You can adjust the intensity of the automatic Comfort programme by using the "OPTIONS"   button to select a profile:

  • "Soft": provides soft and quiet operation by limiting air flow.
  • "Normal": offers the best compromise between a comfortable temperature and quiet operation (default setting).
  • "Fast": provides strong and effective air flow.

To change the current profile (shown by the corresponding indicator lamp), press button  7 repeatedly until the desired profile is displayed:

The "Normal" or "Fast" profiles are the most comfortable for passengers in the rear seats.

This profile setting is associated with automatic mode only. However, on deactivation of the AUTO mode, the indicator lamp for the most recently selected profile remains on.

Changing the profile setting does not reactivate AUTO mode if it was deactivated.

Peugeot 2008. Automatic air conditioning In cold weather with the engine cold, the air flow is increased gradually until the comfort setting has been reached, in order to limit the delivery of cold air into the passenger compartment.

On entering the vehicle, if the interior temperature is much colder or warmer than the comfort setting requested, there is no need to alter the value displayed to more quickly reach the required level of comfort. The system automatically corrects the temperature difference as quickly as possible.
