Eco-driving
Familiarisation
Eco-driving
Eco-driving is a range of everyday practices that allow the motorist to optimise their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Optimise the use of your gearbox
Control the use of your electrical
equipment
With a manual gearbox, move off gently and change up without waiting.
During acceleration change up early.
The gear shift indicator invites you engage the most suitable gear: as
soon as the indication is displayed in the instrument panel, follow it
straight away.
Before moving off, if the passenger compartment is too warm, ventilate it
by opening the windows and air vents before using the air conditioning.
Above 30 mph (50 km/h), close the windows and leave the air vents
open.
Remember to make use of equipment that can help keep the
temperature in the passenger compartment down (sunroof and window
blinds...).
To save energy, do not set the air conditioning at too low a temperature.
As soon as the desired temperature has been reached, limit the use of
the air conditioning, except if regulation is automatic.
Switch off the demisting and defrosting controls as soon as you consider
possible.
Switch off the heated seat as soon as possible.
With an electronic gearbox, do not press the accelerator pedal heavily
or suddenly.
Drive smoothly
Maintain a safe distance between vehicles, use engine braking rather
than the brake pedal, and press the accelerator progressively. These
practices contribute towards a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2
emissions and also help reduce the background traffic noise.
If your vehicle has cruise control, make use of the system at speeds
above 25 mph (40 km/h) when the traffic is flowing well.
18
Switch off the headlamps and foglamp when the level of light does not
require their use.
Avoid running the engine before moving off, particularly in winter; your
vehicle will warm up much faster while driving.
As a passenger, if you avoid connecting your multimedia devices
(film, music, video game...), you will contribute towards limiting the
consumption of electrical energy, and so of fuel.
Disconnect your portable devices before leaving the vehicle.
Familiarisation
Limit the causes of excess consumption
Observe the recommendations
on maintenance
Spread loads throughout the vehicle; place the heaviest items in the
bottom of the boot, as close as possible to the rear seats.
Limit the loads carried in the vehicle and reduce wind resistance (roof
bars, roof rack, bicycle carrier, trailer...). Use a roof box in preference.
Remove roof bars and roof racks after use.
Check the tyre pressures regularly, when cold, referring to the label in
the door aperture, driver's side.
Carry out this check in particular:
- before a long journey,
- at each change of season,
- after a long period out of use.
Don't forget the spare wheel and the tyres on any trailer or caravan.
.
At the end of winter, remove snow tyres and refit your summer tyres.
Have your vehicle serviced regularly (engine oil, oil filter, air filter,
passenger compartment filter...) and observe the schedule of
operations recommended in the maintenance and warranty guide.
When refuelling, do not continue after the third cut-off of the nozzle to
avoid any overflow.
At the wheel of your new vehicle, it is only after the first 1 800 miles
(3 000 kilometres) that you will see the fuel consumption settle down to
a consistent average.

Certain warning lamps come on for a few
seconds in the instrument panel when the
vehicle's ignition is switched on.
When the engine is started, these same
warning lamps should go off.
If they remain on, before moving off, refer to the
section on the warning lamp concerned.
The switching on of certain warning lamps may
be accompanied by an audible signal and a

The warning lamps may come on continuously
(fixed) or flash.
When switching on the ignition, the
displays in the instrument panel appear
dynamically and progressively. This is
normal operation.
Certain warning lamps may come on in
one of two modes: fixed (continuous) or
flashing.
Only by relating the type of illumination
to the operation of the vehicle can it
be determined whether the situation is
normal or a fault has occurred. In the
event of a fault, the illumination of the
warning lamp may be accompanied by
a message.

The air circulating in the passenger
compartment is filtered and originates either
from the outside via the grille located at the
base of the windscreen or from the inside in air
recirculation mode.
Air treatment
The incoming air follows various routes
depending on the controls selected by the
driver:
- direct arrival in the passenger
compartment (air intake),
- passage through a heating circuit (heating),
- passage through a cooling circuit (air
conditioning).
Control panel
The controls of this system are
accessible in the "Air conditioning"
menu of the touch screen tablet A.

Recommendations for ventilation and air conditioning
In order for these systems to be fully effective, follow the operation and maintenance
guidelines below:
F To obtain an even air distribution, take care not to obstruct the exterior air intake grilles
located at the base of the windscreen, the nozzles, the vents and the air outlets, as well
as the air extractor located in the boot.
F Do not cover the sunshine sensor, located on the dashboard; this is used for regulation
of the air conditioning system.
F Operate the air conditioning system for at least 5 to 10 minutes, once or twice a month
to keep it in perfect working order.
F Ensure that the passenger compartment filter is in good condition and have the filter
elements replaced regularly.
We recommend the use of a combined passenger compartment filter. Thanks to its
special active additive, it contributes to the purification of the air breathed by the
occupants and the cleanliness of the passenger compartment (reduction of allergic
symptoms, bad odours and greasy deposits).
F To ensure correct operation of the air conditioning system, you are also advised to have
it checked regularly as recommended in the maintenance and warranty guide.
F If the system does not produce cold air, switch it off and contact a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
If after an extended stop in sunshine,
the interior temperature is very high, first
ventilate the passenger compartment for
a few moments.
Put the air flow control at a setting high
enough to quickly change the air in the
passenger compartment.
The air conditioning system does not
contain chlorine and does not present
any danger to the ozone layer.
The condensation created by the air
conditioning results in a discharge
of water under the vehicle which is
perfectly normal.
Stop & Start
When towing the maximum load on a steep gradient in high temperatures, switching off the
air conditioning increases the available engine power and so improves the towing ability.
66
The heating and air conditioning
systems only work when the engine
is running. To maintain a comfortable
temperature in the passenger
compartment, you can temporarily
deactivate the Stop & Start system (see
the corresponding section).

Hill start assist
System which keeps your vehicle immobilised
temporarily (approximately 2 seconds) when
starting on a gradient, the time it takes to
move your foot from the brake pedal to the
accelerator pedal.
This system only operates when:
- the vehicle is completely stationary, with
your foot on the brake pedal,
- certain conditions of slope are met,
- with the driver’s door closed.
The hill start assist system cannot be
deactivated.
Do not leave the vehicle while it is being
held in the hill start assist phase.
If you need to exit the vehicle with
the engine running, apply the parking
brake.
Operation
On an ascending slope, with the vehicle
stationary, the vehicle is held momentarily
when you release the brake pedal, provided
that:
- you are in first gear or neutral with a
manual gearbox,
- you are in position D with an electronic
gearbox.
On a descending slope, with the vehicle
stationary and reverse gear engaged, the
vehicle is held momentarily when you
release the brake pedal.
Operating fault
If a fault in the system occurs, these warning
lamps come on, accompanied by an alert
message. Contact a CITROËN dealer or
a qualified workshop to have the system
checked.

Park Assist
This system provides active assistance with parking, detecting a parking space then controlling the steering to park in the space.
It controls the steering while the driver manages the accelerator, brakes, gears and clutch (manual gearbox). During phases of entry into and exit from
a parking space, the system provides visual and audible information to the driver in order to make the manoeuvre safe. It may be necessary to move
forwards and backwards more than once.
The driver can take control at any time by gripping the steering wheel.
The Park Assist system cannot in any
circumstances replace the care and
responsibility of the driver.
The driver must remain in control of
their vehicle ensuring that the space
remains clear during the manoeuvre.
In some circumstances, the sensors
may not detect small obstacles located
in their blind spots.
During a manoeuvre the steering wheel
turns quickly: do not hold the steering
wheel, do not place your hand between
the spokes of the steering wheel and
take care with loose and bulky clothing,
scarves, handbags... There is a risk of
injury.
108
For entry into a parking space (parallel
parking) the system does not detect
spaces which are clearly much smaller
or larger than the size of the vehicle.
This "parking assistance" system
is activated automatically during
manoeuvres; it is therefore possible
that a symbol comes on in the screen,
accompanied by an audible signal,
without affecting the manoeuvre.
Changing tyre sizes (out-size tyres,
winter tyres, ...) can interfere with
the correct operation of the parking
assistance system.
The system provides assistance in entering and
exiting a parking space when parallel parking.

Safety
Tyre under-inflation detection
System which automatically checks the pressure of the tyres while driving.
The system monitors the pressures on the four
tyres, once the vehicle is moving.
It compares the information given by the four
wheel speed sensors with reference values,
which must be reinitialised every time the
tyre pressures are adjusted or a wheel
changed.
The system triggers an alert as soon as it
detects a drop in the inflation pressure of one
or more tyres.
The under-inflation detection system
does not replace the vigilance or the
responsibility of the driver.
This system does not avoid the need to
check the tyre pressures (including the
spare wheel) every month as well as
before a long journey.
Driving with under-inflated tyres impairs
road holding, extends braking distances
and causes premature tyre wear,
particularly under arduous condition
(high loading, high speed, long journey).
The inflation pressures defined for
your vehicle can be found on the tyre
pressure label.
See the "Identification markings"
section.
Tyre pressures should be checked
when the tyres are "cold" (vehicle
stopped for 1 hour or after a journey of
less than 6 miles (10 km) at moderate
speeds).
Otherwise (when hot), add 0.3 bar to
the pressures shown on the label.

Safety
Under-inflation alert
This is given by fixed illumination of
this warning lamp, accompanied by
an audible signal and the display of a
message.
F Reduce speed immediately, avoid
excessive steering movements and sudden
braking
F Stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do
so.
The loss of pressure detected does not
always cause visible bulging of the tyre.
Do not satisfy yourself with just a visual
check.
132
Reinitialisation
F If you have a compressor (such as the one
in the temporary puncture repair kit) check
the pressures of the four tyres when cold.
If it is not possible to carry out this check
straight away, drive carefully at reduced
speed.
or
F In the event of a puncture, use the
temporary puncture repair kit or the spare
wheel (depending on equipment),
The alert is maintained until the system
is reinitialised.
It is necessary to reinitialise the system every
time one or more tyre pressure is adjusted, and
after changing one or more wheels.
A label attached to the middle pillar, driver's
side, gives a reminder of this.
Before reinitialising the system, ensure
that the pressures of the four tyres are
correct for the use of the vehicle and in
line with the recommendations on the
tyre pressure label.
The under-inflation detection system
does not give a warning if a pressure is
incorrect at the time of reinitialisation.
Safety
Operating fault
Reinitialisation of the system is done in the the
touch screen tablet, with the ignition on and the
vehicle stationary.
F Select the "Driving assistance"
menu.
F In the secondary page, press

F Confirm the instruction by pressing "Yes",
an audible signal and a message confirm
the reinitialisation.
The new pressure settings registered are
considered to be reference values by the
system.
Snow chains
The system does not have to be
reinitialised after fitting or removing
snow chains.
The under-inflation alert can only be
considered reliable if reinitialisation of
the system is done with the the four tyre
pressures correctly set.
The flashing and then fixed illumination of the
under-inflation warning lamp accompanied
by illumination of the "service" warning lamp
indicates a fault with the system.
In this case, under-inflation monitoring of the
tyres is no longer assured.
Have the system checked by a CITROËN
dealer or a qualified workshop.

Electronic stability control (ESC)
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) incorporating
the following systems:
- the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and the
electronic brake force distribution (EBFD),
- the emergency braking assistance,
- the anti-slip regulation (ASR) or traction
control,
- the dynamic stability control (DSC).
134
Definitions
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
and electronic brake force
distribution (EBFD)
This system improves the stability and
manoeuvrability of your vehicle when braking
and provides improved control in corners, in
particular on poor or slippery road surfaces.
The ABS prevents wheel lock in the event of
emergency braking.
The electronic brake force distribution system
manages the braking pressure wheel by wheel.
Anti-slip regulation (ASR)
The ASR system (also known as Traction
Control) optimises traction in order to limit
wheel slip by acting on the brakes of the driving
wheels and on the engine. It also improves
the directional stability of the vehicle on
acceleration.
Emergency braking assistance
Dynamic stability control (DSC)
In an emergency, this system enables you to
reach the optimum braking pressure more
quickly and therefore reduce the stopping
distance.
It is triggered according to the speed at which
the brake pedal is pressed. This is felt by a
reduction in the resistance of the pedal and an
increase in the effectiveness of the braking.
If there is a difference between the path
followed by the vehicle and that required by
the driver, the DSC monitors each wheel and
automatically acts on the brake of one or more
wheels and on the engine to return the vehicle
to the required path, within the limits of the laws
of physics.
Safety

Safety
The driver must ensure that passengers use
the seat belts correctly and that they are all
restrained securely before setting off.
Wherever you are seated in the vehicle,
always fasten your seat belt, even for short
journeys.
Do not interchange the seat belt buckles as
they will not fulfil their role fully.
The seat belts are fitted with an inertia reel
permitting automatic adjustment of the
length of the strap to your size. The seat belt
is stowed automatically when not in use.
Before and after use, ensure that the seat
belt is reeled in correctly.
The lower part of the strap must be
positioned as low as possible on the pelvis.
The upper part must be positioned in the
hollow of the shoulder.
The inertia reels are fitted with an automatic
locking device which comes into operation in
the event of a collision, emergency braking
or if the vehicle rolls over. You can release
the device by pulling firmly on the strap and
releasing it so that it reels in slightly.
In order to be effective, a seat belt must:
- be tightened as close to the body as
possible,
- be pulled in front of you with a smooth
movement, checking that it does not
twist,
- be used to restrain only one person,
- not bear any trace of cuts or fraying,
- not be converted or modified to avoid
affecting its performance.
In accordance with current safety
regulations, for all repairs on your vehicle,
go to a qualified workshop with the skills
and equipment needed, which a CITROËN
dealer is able to provide.
Have your seat belts checked regularly by
a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop,
particularly if the straps show signs of
damage.
Clean the seat belt straps with soapy
water or a textile cleaning product, sold by
CITROËN dealers.
After folding or moving a seat or rear bench
seat, ensure that the seat belt is positioned
and reeled in correctly.
Recommendations for children
Use a suitable child seat if the passenger is
less than 12 years old or shorter than one
and a half metres.
Never use the same seat belt to secure more
than one person.
Never allow a child to travel on your lap.
In the event of an impact
Depending on the nature and
seriousness of the impact, the
pretensioning device may be deployed
before and independently of the airbags.
Deployment of the pretensioners is
accompanied by a slight discharge of
harmless smoke and a noise, due to the
activation of the pyrotechnic cartridge
incorporated in the system.
In all cases, the airbag warning lamp comes

Safety
Airbags
System designed to maximise the safety of the
occupants (with the exception of the rear centre
passenger) in the event of violent collisions.
The airbags supplement the action of the forcelimiting seat belts (with the exception of the
centre rear passenger).
If a collision occurs, the electronic detectors
record and analyse the front and side impacts
sustained in the impact detection zones:
- in the case of a serious impact, the airbags
are deployed instantly and contribute
towards better protection of the occupants
of the vehicle (with the exception of the
rear centre passenger); immediately after
the impact, the airbags deflate rapidly so
that they do not hinder visibility or the exit
of the occupants,
- in the case of a minor or rear impact
or in certain roll-over conditions, the
airbags will not be deployed; the seat belt
alone contributes towards ensuring your
protection in these situations.
The airbags do not operate when the
ignition is switched off.
This equipment will only deploy once.
If a second impact occurs (during the
same or a subsequent accident), the
airbag will not be deployed again.
140
Impact detection zones
A. Front impact zone.
B. Side impact zone.
Deployment of the airbag(s) is
accompanied by a slight emission
of smoke and a noise, due to the
activation of the pyrotechnic cartridge
incorporated in the system.
This smoke is not harmful, but sensitive
individuals may experience slight
irritation.
The noise of the detonation may result
in a slight loss of hearing for a short
time.
Safety

be deployed.
In the event of a rear or front collision,
none of the lateral airbags is deployed.
Safety
For the airbags to be fully effective, observe the following safety rules:
Sit in a normal upright position.
Wear a correctly adjusted seat belt.
Do not leave anything between the
occupants and the airbags (a child, pet,
object...). This could hamper the operation of
the airbags or injure the occupants.
After an accident or if the vehicle has been
stolen or broken into, have the airbag
systems checked.
All work on the airbag system must be
carried out by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
Even if all of the precautions mentioned
are observed, a risk of injury or of minor
burns to the head, chest or arms when an
airbag is deployed cannot be ruled out.

Child safety
General points relating to child seats
Although one of CITROËN main criteria when designing your vehicle, the safety of your children
also depends on you.
For maximum safety, please observe the
following recommendations:
- in accordance with European regulations,
all children under the age of 12 or less
than one and a half metres tall must
travel in approved child seats suited to
their weight, on seats fitted with a seat
belt or ISOFIX mountings*,
- statistically, the safest seats in your
vehicle for carrying children are the
rear seats,
- a child weighing less than 9 kg must
travel in the "rearward facing" position
both in the front and in the rear.
CITROËN recommends that children
should travel on the rear seats of your
vehicle:
- "rearward-facing" up to the age of 3,
- "forward-facing" over the age of 3.
*T
he rules for carrying children are specific to
each country. Refer to the legislation in force
in your country.
146

When a "rearward facing" child seat is installed
on a rear passenger seat, move the vehicle's
front seat forwards and straighten the backrest
so that the "rearward facing" child seat does
not touch the vehicle's front seat.
When a "forward facing" child seat is installed
on a rear passenger seat, move the vehicle's
front seat forwards and straighten the backrest
so that the legs of the child in the "forward
facing" child seat do not touch the vehicle's
front seat.

Child safety
"ISOFIX" mountings
The ISOFIX child seats are fitted with two
latches which are secured on the two rings A.
Some seats also have an upper strap, known
as the TOP TETHER, which is attached to
ring B.
Your vehicle has been approved in accordance
with the latest ISOFIX regulation.
The seats, represented below, are fitted with
regulation ISOFIX mountings:
-
There are three rings for each seat:
-
two rings A, located between the vehicle
seat back and cushion, indicated by a
marking,
a ring B behind the seat for fixing the upper
strap, referred to as the TOP TETHER.
The TOP TETHER is used to secure the
upper strap of child seats that have one. This
arrangement limits the forward tipping of the
child seat in the event of a front impact.
This ISOFIX mounting system provides fast,
reliable and safe fitting of the child seat in your
vehicle.
When fitting an ISOFIX child seat to the left
hand rear seat, before fitting the seat, first
move the centre rear seat belt towards the
middle of the vehicle, so as to avoid the seat
interfering with the operation of the seat belt.
To secure the child seat to the top tether:
- remove and stow the head restraint before
installing the child seat in this seating
position (refit it once the child seat has
been removed),
- pass the strap of the child seat over the top
of the seat backrest, centred between the
apertures for the head restraint rods,
- fix the hook of the upper strap to the ring B,
- tighten the upper strap.
The incorrect installation of a child seat
in a vehicle compromises the child's
protection in the event of an accident.
Follow the instructions for fitting
child seats contained in the seat
manufacturer's installation guide.

Advice
Child seats
The incorrect installation of a child seat in a
vehicle compromises the child's protection in
the event of an accident.
Check that there is no seat belt or seat belt
buckle under the child seat as this could
destabilise it.
Remember to fasten the seat belts or the
child seat harnesses keeping the slack in
relation to the child's body to a minimum,
even for short journeys.
For the installation of a child seat using a
seat belt, ensure that this is well tensioned
on the child seat and that it is holding the
child seat firmly against the seat of your
vehicle. If your front passenger seat is
adjustable, move it forward if necessary.
At the rear seats, always leave sufficient
space between the front seat and:
- a rearward facing child seat,
- the feet of a child seated in a forward
facing child seat.
For this, move the front seat forward and if
necessary straighten its backrest.
For optimum installation of the "forward
facing" child seat, ensure that the back of
the child seat is as close as possible to the
backrest of the vehicle's seat, or in contact
if possible
The head restraint must be removed before
installing a child seat with a backrest on the
passenger seat.
Ensure that the head restraint is stowed or
attached securely so that it is not thrown around
the vehicle in the event of sharp braking.
Refit the head restraint as soon as the child
seat is removed.
Children at the front
The legislation on carrying a child on the
front passenger seat is specific to each
country. Refer to the legislation in force in
your country.
Deactivate the passenger's airbag when a
"rearward facing" child seat is installed on
the front seat. Otherwise, the child would risk
being seriously injured or killed if the airbag
were deployed.
Installing a booster
cushion
The chest part of the seat belt must be
positioned on the child's shoulder without
touching the neck.
Ensure that the lap part of the seat belt
passes correctly over the child's thighs.
CITROËN recommends the use of a booster
seat which has a back, fitted with a seat belt
guide at shoulder level.
As a safety precaution, do not leave:
- one or more children alone and
unsupervised in a vehicle,
- a child or an animal in a vehicle which
is exposed to the sun, with the windows
closed,
- the keys within reach of children inside
the vehicle.
To prevent accidental opening of the doors,
use the "Child lock".
Take care not to open the rear windows by
more than one third.
To protect young children from the rays of
the sun, fit side blinds on the rear windows.

Practical information
Fuel tank
Capacity of the tank:
- Petrol: approximately 50 litres.
- Diesel: approximately 45 or 50 litres (depending on version).
Low fuel level
When the low fuel level is reached,
this warning lamp in the instrument
panel comes on, accompanied by
an audible warning, a message and
the last bar of the fuel gauge flashes
in red.
When it first comes on, about 5 litres of fuel
remain in the tank.
Until sufficient fuel has been added, this
warning lamp appears every time the ignition
is switched on, accompanied by an audible
warning and a message. This audible warning
and message are repeated with increasing
frequency as the fuel level drops towards "0".
Refuel as soon as possible to avoid running out.
If you run out of fuel (Diesel), refer
also to the section "Running out of fuel
(Diesel)".
Refuelling
A label on the inside of the fuel filler flap
reminds you of the type of fuel to use,
depending on your engine type.
Additions of fuel must be of at least 5 litres to
be registered by the fuel gauge.
Opening the filler cap may result in an inrush of
air. This is entirely normal and results from the
sealing of the fuel system.
With Stop & Start, never refuel with the
system in STOP mode; you must switch
off the ignition with the key.
To refuel in complete safety:
F You must switch off the engine.
F Open the filler flap.
F Take care to select the pump that delivers
the correct type of fuel for your vehicle.
F Introduce the key into the cap and turn it to
the left.
9
161
Practical information
Fuel cut-off
If you are filling your tank to the top, do
not persist after the 3rd cut-off; this could
cause malfunctions.
The petrol or Diesel engine of your vehicle is
fitted with a catalytic converter, a device which
helps to reduce the level of harmful emissions
in the exhaust gases.
For petrol engines, you must use unleaded
fuel.
The filler neck is narrower, allowing only
unleaded petrol nozzles to be introduced.
F Remove the cap and place it on the
support on the inner face of the flap.
F Introduce the filler nozzle and push it in as
far as possible before starting to refuel
(risk of blowback).
F Maintain this position throughout the
refuelling operation.
Once you have finished refuelling:
F Refit the filler cap.
F Turn the key to the right, then remove it
from the cap.
F Push the fuel flap to close it.
162
If you have put in the wrong fuel
for your vehicle, you must have the
fuel tank drained and filled with
the correct fuel before starting the
engine.
Your vehicle is equipped with a safety device
which cuts off the fuel supply in the event of a
collision.
Practical information
Misfuel prevention (Diesel)*
Mechanical device which prevents filling the tank of a Diesel vehicle with petrol. It avoids the risk of
engine damage that can result from filling with the wrong fuel.
Operation
When a petrol filler nozzle is introduced into the
fuel filler neck of your Diesel vehicle, it comes
into contact with the flap. The system remains
closed and prevents filling.
Do not persist but introduce a Diesel type
filler nozzle.
It remains possible to use a fuel can to
fill the tank.
In order to ensure a good flow of fuel,
do not place the nozzle of the fuel can
in direct contact with the flap of the
misfuel prevention device and pour
slowly.
Travelling abroad
As Diesel fuel pump nozzles may
be different in other countries, the
presence of the misfuel prevention
device may make refuelling impossible.
Before travelling abroad, we
recommend that you check with the
CITROËN dealer network, whether your
vehicle is suitable for the fuel pumps in
the country in which you want to travel.

Using an additive called AdBlue® containing urea,
a catalytic converter turns up to 85% of nitrous
oxides (NOx) into nitrogen and water, which are
harmless to health and the environment.
166
The AdBlue ® additive is held in a special
tank located under the boot at the rear of
the vehicle. It has a capacity of 17 litres: this
provides a driving range of about 12 500 miles
(20 000 km), after which an alert is triggered
warning you when the reserve remaining is
enough for just 1 500 miles (2 400 km).
During each scheduled service of your vehicle
by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop,
the AdBlue ® additive tank is refilled in order to
allow normal operation of the SCR system.
If the estimated mileage between two services
is greater than 12 500 miles (20 000 km), we
recommend that you go to a CITROËN dealer
or a qualified workshop to have the necessary
top-up carried out.
Once the AdBlue ® tank is empty, a
system required by regulations prevents
starting of the engine.
If the SCR is faulty, the level of
emissions from your vehicle will no
longer meet the Euro 6 standard: you
vehicle becomes polluting.
In the event of a confirmed fault
with the SCR system, you must go
to a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop as soon as possible: after a
running distance of 650 miles
(1 100 km), a system will be triggered
automatically to prevent engine starting.
Practical information
Range indicators
When switching on the ignition, an indicator
gives an estimate of the distance that can
be travelled with your vehicle before engine
starting is automatically prevented, once the
vehicle starts using the reserve of AdBlue ® or
after a fault is detected with the SCR system.
In the event of simultaneous system fault and
low AdBlue ® level, the shortest range is the one
displayed.
In the event of the risk of non-starting related to a lack of AdBlue®
The engine start prevention system
required by regulations is activated
automatically once the AdBlue ® tank is
empty.
Range greater than 1 500 miles (2 400 km)
When switching on the ignition, no information
on range is displayed automatically in the
instrument panel.
You can access this information in the touch
screen tablet.
F Select the "Driving assistance"
menu.
F In the secondary page, press
on "Diagnostic".
The remaining driving range is displayed

30 seconds until the additive tank has been
topped-up.
Go to a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop to have the AdBlue ® tank topped-up.
You can also top-up the tank yourself.
Refer to the "Topping-up" section.
If you fail to do this, there is a risk that you will
not be able to start your engine.
When switching on the ignition, the SERVICE
warning lamp comes on and the UREA warning
lamp flashes, accompanied by an audible
signal and the display of the message "Top up
emissions additive: Starting prevented".
The AdBlue ® tank is empty: the system required
by regulations prevents engine starting.
To be able to start the engine,
we recommend that you call on
a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop for the top-up required. If
you carry out the top-up yourself, it is
essential to add at least 3.8 litres of
AdBlue ® to the tank.
Refer to the "Topping-up" section.
Practical information
In the event of a fault with the the SCR emissions control system
A system that prevents engine starting is
activated automatically from 650 miles
(1 100 km) after confirmation of a fault
with the SCR emissions control system.
Have the system checked by a CITROËN
dealer or a qualified workshop as soon as
possible.
In the event of the detection
of a fault
During an authorised driving phase (between
650 miles and 0 miles) (1 100 km and 0 km)
When switching on the ignition, the UREA,
SERVICE and diagnostic warning lamps comes
on, accompanied by an audible signal and the
display of a message "Emissions fault" to signal
a fault with the emissions control system.
If a fault with the SCR system is confirmed
(after 30 miles (50 km) covered with the
permanent display of the message signalling
a fault), when switching on the ignition, the
SERVICE and engine diagnostic warning lamps
come on and the UREA warning lamp flashes,
accompanied by an audible signal and the
display of a message (e.g.: "Emissions fault:
Starting prevented in 150 miles") indicating the
remaining range express in miles or kilometres.
While driving, the message is displayed every
30 seconds while the fault with the SCR system
persists.
You should go to a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop as soon as possible.
If you fail to do this, there is a risk that you will
not be able to start your engine.
If it is a temporary fault, the alert
disappears once the exhaust gas
emissions return to normal.

Freezing of the AdBlue®
additive
Starting prevented
Every time the ignition is switched on, the SERVICE
and engine diagnostic warning lamps come on and
the UREA warning lamp flashes, accompanied by
an audible signal and the display of the message
"Emissions fault: Starting prevented".
You have exceeded the authorised
driving limit: the starting prevention
system inhibits engine starting.
To be able to start the engine, you must call on
a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
170
The AdBlue ® additive freezes at
temperatures below around -11°C.
The SCR system includes a heater for
the AdBlue ® tank.
In exceptional circumstances (vehicle
kept for a long period at temperatures
that are constantly below -15°C), an
emissions control system fault alert may
be related to freezing of the AdBlue ® in
your vehicle.
Park your vehicle in a warmer area for
a few hours until the additive becomes
liquid again.
The emissions alert does not go off
immediately, it will occur after several
mile of running.
Practical information
Topping-up the AdBlue® additive
Filling the AdBlue ® tank is an operation
included in every routine service on your
vehicle by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop.
Nevertheless, given the capacity of the tank,
it may be necessary to top-up the additive
between services, more particularly if an alert
(warning lamps and a message) signals the
requirement.
You can got to a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop.
If you envisage topping-up yourself, please
read the following warnings carefully.
Precautions in use
The AdBlue ® additive is an urea-based
solution. This liquid is non-flammable,
colourless and odourless (kept in a cool area).
In the event of contact with the skin, wash
the affected area with soap and water. In the
event of contact with the eyes, wash (irrigate)
the eyes with large amounts of water or with
an eye wash solution for at least 15 minutes.
If a burning sensation or irritation persists, get
medical attention.
If swallowed, immediately wash out the mouth
with clean water and then drink plenty of water.
In certain conditions (high ambient
temperature, for example), the risk of release
of ammonia cannot be excluded: do not inhale
the product. Ammonia vapour has en irritant
effect on mucous membranes (eyes, nose and
throat).
Keep AdBlue ® out of the reach of
children, in its original bottle.
Never transfer AdBlue ® to another
container: it would loose its purity.
Use only AdBlue ® additive that meets
the ISO 22241 standard.
Never dilute the additive with water.
Never pour the additive into the Diesel
fuel tank.
The supply in non-drip bottles simplifies topingup. You can obtain 1.89 litre (half US gallon)
bottles from a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop.
9
Never top-up from an AdBlue ®
dispenser reserved for heavy goods
vehicles.
171
Practical information
Recommendations on storage
Procedure
AdBlue ® freezes at about -11°C and
deteriorates above 25°C. It is recommended
that bottles be stored in a cool area and
protected from direct sunlight.
Under these conditions, the additive can be
kept for at least a year.
Additive that has been frozen can be used once
it has thawed out.
Before topping-up, ensure that the vehicle is
parked on a flat and level surface.
In wintry conditions, ensure that the
temperature of the vehicle is above -11°C.
Otherwise, by freezing, the AdBlue ® cannot
be poured into its tank. Park your vehicle in a
warmer area for a few hours to allow the top-up
to be carried out.
F Switch off the ignition and remove the key.
F Without pressing, turn the black cap a
quarter turn anti-clockwise and lift it off.
Never store bottles of AdBlue ® in your
vehicle.
F For access to the AdBlue® tank, raise the boot
carpet then, depending on equipment, lift out
the spare wheel and/or the storage box.
172
F Turn the blue cap a 6th of a turn
anti-clockwise.
F Lift off the cap.
Practical information
F After emptying the bottle, wipe away any
spillage around the tank filler using a damp
cloth.
F Obtain a bottle of AdBlue ®. After first
checking the use-by date, read carefully
the instructions on use on the label before
pouring the contents of the bottle into your
vehicle's AdBlue ® tank.
®
Important: if your vehicle's AdBlue
tank is completely empty - which is
confirmed by the alert messages and
the impossibility of starting the engine,
you must add at least 3.8 litres (so
two 1.89 litre bottles).
If any additive is split or splashed, wash
immediately with cold water or wipe with
a damp cloth.
If the additive has crystallised, clean it
off using a sponge and hot water.
F Refit the blue cap to the tank and turn
it a 6th of a turn clockwise, to its stop.
F Refit the black cap and turn it a quarter of
a turn clockwise without pressing. Ensure
that the indicator on the cap lines up with
the indicator on the support.
F Depending on equipment, return the spare
wheel and/or the storage box to the bottom
of the boot.
F Refit the boot carpet and close the tailgate.
Important: in the event of a top-up after
a breakdown because of a lack of
additive, signalled by the message "Top
up emissions additive: Starting prevented",
you must wait around 5 minutes before
switching on the ignition, without opening
the driver's door, locking the vehicle
or introducing the key into the ignition
switch.
Switch on the ignition, then, after
10 seconds, start the engine.

Towing a trailer
Towbar suitable for the attachment of a
trailer or installation of a bicycle carrier, with
additional lighting and signalling.
Your vehicle is primarily designed for
transporting people and luggage, but it may
also be used for towing a trailer.
We recommend the use of genuine
CITROËN towbars and their harnesses
that have been tested and approved
from the design stage of your vehicle,
and that the fitting of the towbar is
entrusted to a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
If the towbar is not fitted by a CITROËN

Practical information
Driving advice
Distribution of loads
Cooling
Braking
F Distribute the load in the trailer so that the
heaviest items are as close as possible to
the axle and the nose weight approaches
the maximum permitted without
exceeding it.
Air density decreases with altitude, thus
reducing engine performance. Above
1 000 metres, the maximum towed load must
be reduced by 10 % for every 1 000 metres of
altitude.
Towing a trailer on a slope increases the
temperature of the coolant.
As the fan is electrically controlled, its cooling
capacity is not dependent on the engine speed.
F To lower the engine speed, reduce your
speed.
The maximum towed load on a long incline
depends on the gradient and the ambient
temperature.
In all cases, keep a check on the coolant
temperature.
Towing a trailer increases the braking distance.
To avoid overheating of the brakes on a long
mountain type of descent, the use of engine
braking is recommended.
Refer to the "Technical data" section for details
of the weights and towed loads which apply to
your vehicle.
F If the warning lamp and the
STOP warning lamp come on,
stop the vehicle and switch off
the engine as soon as possible.
Tyres
F Check the tyre pressures of the towing
vehicle and of the trailer, observing the
recommended pressures.
Lighting
F Check the electrical lighting and signalling
on the trailer.
Side wind
F Take into account the increased sensitivity
to side wind.
When not towing a trailer, remove the
quickly-detachable tow ball before
driving.
212
The rear parking sensors will be
deactivated automatically if a genuine
CITROËN towbar is used.

Checks
Checks
Unless otherwise indicated, check these components in accordance with the maintenance and warranty guide and according to your engine.
Otherwise, have them checked by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
12 V battery
The battery does not require any maintenance.
However, check that the terminals are clean
and correctly tightened, particularly in summer
and winter.
When carrying out work on the battery, refer
to the "12 V battery" section for details of the
precautions to be taken before disconnecting
the battery and following its reconnection.
The presence of this label, in particular with
the Stop & Start system, indicates the use of
a specific 12 V lead-acid battery with special
technology and specification. The involvement
of a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop
is essential when replacing or disconnecting
the battery.
226
Air filter and passenger compartment filter
Refer to the maintenance and
warranty guide for details of the
replacement intervals for these
components.
Depending on the environment (e.g. dusty
atmosphere) and the use of the vehicle
(e.g. city driving), replace them twice as often
if necessary.
A clogged passenger compartment filter may
have an adverse effect on the performance
of the air conditioning system and generate
undesirable odours.
Oil filter
Replace the oil filter each time the
engine oil is changed.
Refer to the maintenance and
warranty guide for details of the
replacement interval for this
component.
Particle emissions filter (Diesel)
The start of saturation of the
particle filter is indicated by the
fixed illumination of this warning
lamp accompanied by a warning
message.
As soon as the traffic conditions permit,
regenerate the filter by driving at a
speed of at least 40 mph (60 km/h) until
the warning lamp goes off.
If the warning lamp stays on, this
indicates a low additive level.
On a new vehicle, the first particle
filter regeneration operations may be
accompanied by a "burning" smell,
which is perfectly normal.
Following prolonged operation of the
vehicle at very low speed or at idle,
you may, in exceptional circumstances,
notice the emission of water vapour at
the exhaust on acceleration. This does
not affect the behaviour of the vehicle
or the environment.
Checks
Manual gearbox
The gearbox does not require any
maintenance (no oil change).
Refer to the maintenance and
warranty guide for the details of
the level checking interval for this
component.
Electronic gearbox
The gearbox does not require any
maintenance (no oil change).
Refer to the maintenance and
warranty guide for details of the level
checking interval for this component.
Brake disc wear
For information on checking brake
disc wear, contact a CITROËN dealer
or a qualified workshop.
Parking brake
If excessive travel or a loss of
effectiveness of this system is
noticed, the parking brake must be
checked, even between two services.
Checking this system must be done by a
CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
Brake pads
Brake wear depends on the style
of driving, particularly in the case
of vehicles used in town, over short
distances. It may be necessary to
have the condition of the brakes checked, even
between vehicle services.
Unless there is a leak in the circuit, a drop in
the brake fluid level indicates that the brake
pads are worn.
Only use products recommended by
CITROËN or products of equivalent
quality and specification.
In order to optimise the operation of
units as important as those in the
braking system, CITROËN selects and
offers very specific products.
After washing the vehicle, dampness,
or in wintry conditions, ice can form
on the brake discs and pads: braking
efficiency may be reduced. Make light
brake applications to dry and defrost
the brakes.
To avoid damaging the electrical units,
the use of a high pressure washer
in the engine compartment is strictly
prohibited.

On-board audio: Arkamys© Sound Staging.
With Sound Staging, the driver and passengers are immersed in an
"audio scene" recreating the natural atmosphere of an auditorium:
truly a part of the scene and its surroundings.
This new sensation is made possible by software in the audio
system which processes the digital signals from the media players
(radio, CD, MP3…) without changing the audio settings. This
processing takes account of the characteristics of the passenger
compartment to produce optimum results.
The Arkamys© software installed in your audio system processes
the digital signal from the media players (radio, CD, MP3, ...) and
recreates a natural musical scene, with harmonious placement of
instruments and voices in the space in front of passengers, level with
the windscreen.

QUESTION
ANSWER
SOLUTION
Navigation, guidance
The route calculation is
not successful.
The guidance criteria may conflict with the current location (exclusion of
toll roads on a toll motorway).
I am unable to enter my
post code.
The system only accepts post codes of up to 5 characters.
The POIs do not appear.
The POIs have not been selected.
Select the POIs in the list of POIs.
The risk areas audible
warning does not work.
The audible warning is not active.
Activate audible warnings in the Guidance options

The system does not
suggest a detour around
an incident on the route.
The guidance criteria do not take account of TMC messages.
Select the "Traffic info" function in the list of
guidance criteria.
I receive a Risk area alert
which is not on my route.
Other than guidance, the system announces all Risk areas positioned in a
cone located in front of the vehicle. It may provide an alert for a Risk area
located on nearby or parallel roads.
Zoom in on the map to view the exact position of
the Risk area. Select "On the route" to no longer
receive alerts other than guidance or to reduce the
time for the announcement.

Frequently asked questions
QUESTION
Certain traffic jams
along the route are not
indicated in real time.
The altitude is not
displayed.
ANSWER
SOLUTION
On starting, it is several minutes before the system begins to receive the
traffic information.
Wait until the traffic information is being received
correctly (display of the traffic information icons on
the map).
The filters are too restrictive.
Modify the "Geographic filter" settings.
In certain countries, only major routes (motorways...) are listed for the
traffic information.
This phenomenon is normal. The system is
dependent on the traffic information available.
On starting, the initialisation of the GPS may take up to 3 minutes to
receive more than 4 satellites correctly.
Wait until the system has started up completely.
Check that there is a GPS coverage of at least
4 satellites (long press on the SETUP button,
then select "GPS coverage").
Depending on the geographical environment (tunnel...) or the weather,
the conditions of reception of the GPS signal may vary.
This phenomenon is normal. The system
is dependent on the GPS signal reception
conditions.
Telephone, Bluetooth
I cannot connect my
Bluetooth telephone.
The telephone's Bluetooth function may be switched off or the telephone
may not be visible.
-
-
The volume of the
telephone connected
in Bluetooth mode is
inaudible.
Check that your telephone's Bluetooth
function is switched on.
Check in the telephone settings that it is
"visible to all".
The Bluetooth telephone is not compatible with the system.
You can check the compatibility of your telephone
at www.citroen.co.uk (services).
The volume depends both on the system and on the telephone.
Increase the volume of the audio system, to
maximum if required, and increase the volume of
the telephone if necessary.
The ambient noise level has an influence on the quality of telephone
communication.
Reduce the ambient noise level (close the windows,
reduce the booster fan speed, slow down, ...).

Frequently asked questions
QUESTION
ANSWER
SOLUTION
Some contacts are
duplicated in the list.
The options for synchronizing contacts are synchronizing the contacts
on the SIM card, the contacts on the telephone, or both. When both
synchronizations are selected, some contacts may be duplicated.
Select "Display SIM card contacts" or "Display
telephone contacts".
Contacts are not shown
in alphabetical order.
Some telephones offer display options. Depending on the settings
chosen, contacts can be transferred in a specific order.
Modify the display setting in the telephone
directory.
The system does not
receive SMS text messages.
The Bluetooth mode does not permit sending SMS text messages to the
system.
CD, MP3
The CD is ejected
automatically or is not
played by the player.
The CD is inserted upside down, is unplayable, does not contain any
audio data or contains an audio format which the player cannot play.
-
-
Check that the CD is inserted in the player the right
way up.
Check the condition of the CD: the CD cannot be
played if it is too damaged.
Check the content in the case of a recorded CD:
refer to the advice in the "AUDIO" section.
The audio system's CD player does not play DVDs.
Some recorded CDs will not be played by the audio
system because they are not of the correct quality.
The CD has been recorded in a format that is not compatible with the player (udf, ...).
-
The CD is protected by an anti-pirating protection system which is not
recognised by the audio system.
-
-
There is a long waiting
period following the insertion
of a CD or connection of a
USB memory stick.
When a new medium is inserted, the system reads a certain amount of
data (directory, title, artist, etc.). This may take from a few seconds to a
few minutes.
This phenomenon is normal.
The CD player sound is
poor.
The CD used is scratched or of poor quality.
Insert good quality CDs and store them in suitable
conditions.
The audio equipment settings (bass, treble, ambiences) are unsuitable.
Set the treble or bass level to 0, without selecting
an ambience.

Frequently asked questions
QUESTION
ANSWER
SOLUTION
Some characters in the
media information are not
displayed correctly while
playing.
The audio system does not display some types of characters.
Use standard characters to name tracks and
folders.
Playing of streaming files
does not start.
The peripheral device connected does not support automatic play.
Start the playback from the device.
The names of tracks and
the track length are not
displayed on the screen
when streaming audio.
The Bluetooth profile does not allow the transfer of this information.
Radio
The quality of reception
of the radio station
listened to gradually
deteriorates or the stored
stations do not function
(no sound, 87.5 Mhz is
displayed...).
I cannot find some radio
stations in the list of
stations received.
The name of the radio
station changes.
The vehicle is too far from the transmitter used by the station listened
to or there is no transmitter in the geographical area through which the
vehicle is travelling.
Activate the "RDS" function by means of the
short-cut menu to enable the system to check
whether there is a more powerful transmitter in the
geographical area.
The environment (hills, buildings, tunnels, basement car parks...) block
reception, including in RDS mode.
This phenomenon is normal and does not indicate
a fault with the audio system.
The aerial is absent or has been damaged (for example when going
through a car wash or into an underground car park).
Have the aerial checked by a CITROËN dealer.
The station is not received or its name has changed in the list.
Some radio stations send other information in place of their name (the
title of the song for example).
The system interprets this information as the name of the station.

QUESTION
ANSWER
SOLUTION
Settings, configuration
In changing the setting
of treble and bass the
equalizer setting is
deselected.
The selection of an equalizer setting imposes the balance settings.
Modifying one without the other is not possible.
Modify the balance or equalizer settings to obtain
the desired musical ambience.
The selection of a distribution setting imposes the balance settings.
Modifying one without the other is not possible.
Modify the balance or distribution settings to
obtain the desired musical ambience.
For optimum sound quality, the audio settings for Volume, Bass, Treble,
Equalizer and Loudness can be adapted to the different sound sources,
which may result in audible differences when changing source (radio,
CD...).
Check that the audio settings for (Volume, Bass,
Treble, Equalizer, Loudness) are adapted to
the sources listened to. It is advisable to set the
AUDIO functions (Bass, Treble, Fr-Re balance,
Le-Ri balance) to the middle position, select the
"None", musical ambience and set the loudness
correction to the "Active" position in CD mode or
to the "Inactive" position in radio mode.
In changing the equalizer
setting, treble and bass
return to zero.
When changing the
balance settings, the
distribution setting is
deselected.
When changing an
distribution setting,
the balance setting is
deselected.
There is a difference in
sound quality between
the different audio
sources (radio, CD...).

Frequently asked questions
QUESTION
ANSWER
With the engine off, the
system switches off after
a few minutes of use.
When the engine is switched off, the system's operating time depends on
the battery charge.
The switch-off is normal: the system switches to economy mode and
switches off to prevent discharging of the vehicle's battery.
SOLUTION
Start the vehicle's engine to increase the battery
charge.
USB, portable player, connection key
Playback of my USB
memory stick starts only
after a very long wait
(around 2 to 3 minutes).
Some files supplied with the memory stick may greatly slow down access
to reading the memory stick (multiplication by 10 of the catalogue time).
Delete the files supplied with the memory stick
and limit the number of sub-folders in the file
structure on the memory stick.
When I connect my
iPhone as telephone and
to the USB port at the
same time, I am unable
to play the music files.
When the iPhone connects automatically as a telephone, it forces the
streaming function. The streaming function takes the place of the USB
function which is then not useable, there is a period without sound of the
track being played with Apple® players.
Disconnect and reconnect to the USB port (the
USB function takes priority over streaming).
