Eco-driving
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.
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...).
Switch off the air conditioning, unless it has automatic regulation, as
soon as the desired temperature is attained.
Switch off the demisting and defrosting controls, if not automatic.
Switch off the heated seat as soon as possible.
With an automatic or electronic gearbox, give preference to automatic
mode and avoid pressing the accelerator pedal heavily or suddenly.
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.
For vehicles fitted with an electronic or automatic gearbox, this indicator
appears only in manual mode.
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 helps 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.
8
Switch off the headlamps and front foglamps 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.
Eco-driving
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.
With a Blue HDi Diesel engine, if the SCR system is faulty your vehicle
becomes polluting; go to a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop
without delay to have the emissions of nitrous oxides brought back to
the legal level.
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.

Service indicator
System which informs the driver when the
next service is due, in accordance with the
manufacturer's servicing schedule.
The point at which the service is due is
calculated from the last indicator zero reset. It
is determined by two parameters:
- the distance travelled,
- the time elapsed since the last service.
More than 1800 miles (3000 km)
remain before the next service is due
When the ignition is switched on, no service
information appears on the display.

Retrieving the service
information
A few seconds after the ignition is switched
on, the distance recorder resumes its normal
operation. The spanner remains on.
The distance remaining may be
weighted by the time factor, depending
on the type of driving.
Therefore, the spanner may also come
on if you have exceeded the time
interval since the last service, indicated
in the servicing and warranty booklet.
After each service, the service indicator must
be reset to zero.
The procedure for resetting to zero is as
follows:
F switch off the ignition,
F press and hold the trip distance recorder
zero reset button,
F switch on the ignition; the distance recorder
display begins a countdown,
F when the display indicates "=0", release
the button; the spanner disappears.

Comfort
Ventilation
System which creates and maintains
comfortable conditions in the vehicle's
passenger compartment.
Air intake
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 flow paths
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).
The temperature control enables you to obtain
the level of comfort required by mixing the air of
the various circuits.
The air distribution control enables you to
diffuse the air in the passenger compartment
combining several air vents.
The air flow control enables you to increase or
reduce the speed of the ventilation fan.

Control panel
Air distribution
The controls of this system are grouped
together on control panel A on the centre

- the level of comfort required,
- air flow,
- air distribution,
- demisting and defrosting,
- manual or digital air conditioning controls.
1. Windscreen demisting or defrosting vents.
2. Front side window demisting or defrosting

Recommendations for ventilation and air conditioning
In order for these systems to be fully effective, follow the guidelines on operation and
maintenance below:
F If the interior temperature remains very high after the vehicle has been parked in the
sun for a considerable time, first ventilate the passenger compartment for a
few minutes.
Place the air flow control at a sufficient level to provide an adequate renewal of air in
the passenger compartment.
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 passenger compartment on both sides of the rear shelf.
FDo not cover the sunshine sensor, located on the dashboard (behind the instrument
panel); this is used for regulation of the air conditioning system.
F Operate the air conditioning system for 5 to 10 minutes, once or twice a month to keep it
in good working order.
F Ensure that the passenger compartment filter is in good condition and have the filter
elements replaced regularly (refer to the "Checks" section).
We recommend the use of a combined passenger compartment filter. Thanks to its
second special active filter, 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.
F If the system does not produce cold air, do not use it and contact a CITROËN dealer or
a qualified workshop.
The condensation created by the air
conditioning results in a discharge
of water under the vehicle which is
perfectly normal.
3
The air conditioning system does not
contain chlorine and does not present
any danger to the ozone layer.
When towing the maximum load on a steep gradient in high temperatures, switching off the
air conditioning saves engine power and so improves towing capacity.

Fuel used for petrol engines
Fuel used for Diesel
engines
The petrol engines are compatible with
E10 bio-petrol (containing 10 % ethanol),
conforming to European standards EN 228 and
EN 15376.
E85 type fuels (containing up to 85 % ethanol)
are reserved exclusively for vehicles marketed
for the use of this type of fuel (BioFlex
vehicles). The quality of the ethanol must
comply with European standard EN 15293.
The Diesel engines are perfectly with biofuels
which conform to current and future European
standards (Diesel fuel which complies with
standard EN 590 mixed with a biofuel which
complies with standard EN 14214) available
at the pumps (containing up to 7 % Fatty Acid
Methyl Ester).
The B30 biofuel can be used in certain Diesel
engines; however, this use is subject to strict
application of the special servicing conditions
indicated in the maintenance and warranty
guide. Contact a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop.
The use of any other type of (bio)fuel
(vegetable or animal oils, pure or diluted,
domestic fuel...) is strictly prohibited (risk of
damage to the engine and fuel system).
Access
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.
Located in the filler neck, the misfuel prevention device appears when the filler cap is removed.
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.
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.
4
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.

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.
* The regulations on carrying children are
specific to each country. Refer to the
legislation in force in your country.
94
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.
Child safety
Child seat at the rear
"Rearward facing"
"Forward facing"
Centre rear seat
A child seat with a support leg must never be
installed on the centre rear passenger seat.
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.

Ensure that the seat belt is correctly
tensioned.
For child seats with a support leg,
ensure that this is in firm contact with
the floor. If necessary, adjust the front
seat of the vehicle.
95
Child safety
Child seat in the front*
"Rearward facing"
"Forward facing"
When a "rearward facing" child seat is installed
on the front passenger seat, adjust the seat to
the intermediate longitudinal position, with the
backrest straightened.
The passenger's front airbag must be
deactivated. Otherwise, the child would
risk being seriously injured or killed if the
airbag were to inflate.
When a "forward facing" child seat is installed
on the front passenger seat, adjust the
vehicle's seat to the intermediate longitudinal
position with seat backrest straightened and
leave the passenger's front airbag activated.
* The rules on carrying children are specific to
each country. Refer to the current legislation
in your country before installing a child seat
on this seat.

Deactivating the passenger's front airbag
Never install a rearward facing child
restraint system on a seat protected by
an active front airbag. This could cause
the death of the child or serious injury.

"ISOFIX" mountings
Your vehicle is approved to the latest ISOFIX
regulations.
The seats represented below, are fitted with
regulation ISOFIX mountings:
To secure the child seat to the TOP TETHER:
- raise the head restraint,
- pass the child seat upper strap between
the rods of the head restraint,
- fix the hook on the upper strap to the
ring B,
- tighten the upper strap.
-
a ring B, located in the roof, with the TOP
TETHER logo, for fixing the top tether belt.
If a child is not installed in a vehicle
correctly, the child's protection in the
event of an accident will be compromised.
There are 3 rings for each seat:
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 reliable,
safe and fast fitting of the child seat in your
vehicle.

2 rings A, located between the backrest
and the seat cushion, identified by a label,
ISOFIX child seats are fitted with two latches
which are secured easily on these rings A.

Child safety
Advice on child seats
The incorrect installation of a child seat in a
vehicle compromises the child's protection in
the event of an accident.
Ensure 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
relative to the child's body to a minimum,
even for short journeys.
When installing a child seat using the seat
belt, ensure that the seat belt is tightened
correctly on the child seat and that it secures
the child seat firmly on the seat of your
vehicle. If your passenger seat is adjustable,
move it forwards if necessary.
At rear seating positions, always leave
sufficient space between the front seat and:
- a "rearward facing" child seat,
- the child's feet for a child seat fitted
"forward facing".
To do this, move the front seat forwards
and, if necessary, move its backrest into the
upright position.
For optimum installation of the "forwardfacing" child seat, ensure that the back of
the child seat is as close as possible to the
backrest of the vehicle's seat , in contact if
possible.
You mst remove the head restraint before
installing a child seat with backrest to a
passenger seat.
Ensure that the head restraint is stored or
attached securely to prevent it from being
thrown around the vehicle in the event of
sharp braking. Refit the head restraint when
the child seat is removed.
Children at the front
The legislation on carrying children on the front
passenger seat is specific to each country. Refer
to the legislation in force in your country.
Deactivate the passenger 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 to inflate.
Installing a booster seat
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:
- a child or 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

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.
8
Driving with under-inflated tyres
increases fuel consumption.
109
Safety
Under-inflation alert
This is given by fixed illumination of
this warning lamp, accompanied by
an audible signal and, depending on
equipment, 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.
Reinitialisation
F In the event of a puncture, use the
temporary puncture repair kit or the spare
wheel (depending on equipment),
or
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,
or
F if it is not possible to make this check
immediately, drive carefully at reduced
speed.
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.
The alert is maintained until the system
is reinitialised.
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.

Operating fault
Snow chains
The system does not have to be
reinitialised after fitting or removing
snow chains.
The under-inflation alert is only
dependable if the system has been
reinitialised with all four tyres inflated to
the correct pressures.
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.

Safety
Braking assistance systems
Group of supplementary systems which help
you to obtain optimum braking in complete
safety in emergency situations:
- anti-lock braking system (ABS),
- electronic brake force distribution (EBFD),
- emergency braking assistance (EBA).
Anti-lock braking system
and electronic brake force
distribution
Linked systems which improve the stability and
manoeuvrability of your vehicle when braking,
in particular on poor or slippery surfaces.
Activation
The anti-lock braking system comes into
operation automatically when there is a risk of
wheel lock.
Normal operation of the ABS may make itself
felt by slight vibration of the brake pedal.
When braking in an emergency, press
very firmly without releasing the
pressure.
Emergency braking assistance
Operating fault
If this warning lamp comes on,
accompanied by an audible signal
and a message in the screen, it
indicates a malfunction of the antilock braking system which could
result in loss of control of the vehicle
when braking.
If this warning lamp comes on,
together with the STOP and ABS
warning lamps, accompanied by an
audible signal and a message in the
screen, it indicates a malfunction of
the electronic brake force distribution
which could result in loss of control of
the vehicle when braking.
System which, in an emergency, enables you
to obtain the optimum braking pressure more
quickly, thus reducing the stopping distance.
Activation
It is triggered by the speed at which the brake
pedal is pressed.
The effect of this is a reduction in the
resistance of the pedal and an increase in
braking efficiency.
When braking in an emergency, press
firmly without releasing the pressure.
8
You must stop as soon as it is safe to do so.
In either case, contact a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
When replacing wheels (tyres and
rims), ensure that they conform to the
manufacturer's recommendations.
113
Safety
Trajectory control systems
Anti-slip regulation (ASR)
and dynamic stability
control (DSC)
The anti-slip regulation (also known as traction
control) optimises traction to prevent skidding of
the wheels, by acting on the brakes of the driving
wheels and on the engine.
The electronic stability control acts on the brake
of one or more wheels and on the engine to keep
the vehicle on the trajectory required by the driver,
within the limits of the laws of physics.
Activation
These systems are activated automatically
each time the vehicle is started.
They come into operation in the event of a grip
or trajectory problem.
This is indicated by flashing of this
warning lamp in the instrument panel.
Operating fault
If this warning lamp comes on,
accompanied by an audible signal
and a message in the multifunction
screen, this indicates a malfunction
of these systems.
Have it checked by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
Deactivation
In exceptional conditions (starting a vehicle
which is bogged down, stuck in snow, on soft
ground...), it may be advisable to deactivate the
DSC and ASR systems, so that the wheels can
move freely and regain grip.
F Press the button, located in the centre of
the dashboard.
If this warning lamp comes on in the
instrument panel and the indicator
lamp on the button comes on, this
indicates that the DSC and ASR
systems are deactivated.
Reactivation
These systems are reactivated automatically
each time the ignition is switched back on or
from 30 mph (50 km/h).
F Press the button again to reactivate them
manually.
114
The DSC/ASR systems offer
exceptional safety in normal driving, but
this should not encourage the driver to
take extra risks or drive at high speed.
The correct operation of these
systems depends on observation of
the manufacturer's recommendations
regarding wheels (tyres and rims),
braking components, electronic
components and assembly and repair
procedures.
After an impact, have these systems
checked by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
Safety
Seat belts
Front seat belts
The front seat belts are fitted with a
pretensioning and force limiting system.
This system improves safety in the front
seats in the event of a front or side impact.
Depending on the severity of the impact, the
pretensioning system instantly tightens the seat
belts against the body of the occupants.
The pretensioning seat belts are active when
the ignition is on.
The force limiter reduces the pressure of the

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 the strap firmly and
then releasing it so that it reels in slightly.
118
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's
seat belts, 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.
For more information, refer to the "Child
seats" section.
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
on.
Following an impact, have the seat belts
system checked, and if necessary replaced,
by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified
workshop.
Safety
Airbags
System designed to contribute towards
improving 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 force-limiting
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
may 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.
Front airbags
System which protects the driver and front
passenger in the event of a serious front impact
in order to limit the risk of injury to the head and
chest.
The driver's airbag is fitted in the centre of the
steering wheel; the front passenger's airbag is
fitted in the dashboard above the glove box.
Impact detection zones
A. Front impact zone.
B. Side impact zone.
Deployment of one or more of the
airbags 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 detonation related to the
deployment of one or more airbags may
result in a slight loss of hearing for a
short time.
8
Deployment
The airbags are deployed, except for the
passenger's front airbag if it is deactivated,
in the event of a serious front impact applied
to all or part of the front impact zone A, in
the longitudinal centreline of the vehicle on a
horizontal plane and directed from the front to
the rear of the vehicle.
The front airbag inflates between the front
occupant of the vehicle and the dashboard to
cushion their forward movement.
119
Safety
Deactivation
Only the passenger's front airbag can be
deactivated:
F with the ignition off, insert the key in the
passenger airbag deactivation switch 1,
F turn it to the "OFF" position,
F then, remove the key keeping the switch in
this position.
Operating fault
To assure the safety of your child, it is
imperative that the passenger's front
airbag is deactivated when you install a
"rearward facing" child seat on the front
passenger seat.
Otherwise, the child would risk being
seriously injured or killed if the airbag
were deployed.
Reactivation
When you remove the rearward facing child
seat, with the ignition off, turn switch 1 to the
"ON" position to reactivate the airbag and so
assure the safety of your front passenger in the
event of an impact.
According to version, this warning
lamp comes on either in the
instrument panel or on the seat belt
and passenger's front airbag warning
lamp display when the ignition is on

passenger's front airbag is activated.
If this warning lamp comes on in the
instrument panel, accompanied by an
audible warning and a message in the
multifunction screen, contact a CITROËN
dealer or a qualified workshop without
delay to have the system checked. The
airbags may no longer be deployed in the
event of a serious impact.
If this warning lamp flashes, contact a
CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop
without delay. The passenger's front
airbag may no longer be deployed in the
event of a serious impact.
If at least one of the two airbag
warning lamps come on continuously,
do not install a child seat on the front
passenger seat.
Have it checked by a CITROËN dealer
or a qualified workshop.
Safety

Curtain airbags
System which protects the driver and front
passenger in the event of a serious side impact
in order to limit the risk of injury to the chest,
between the hip and the shoulder.
Each lateral airbag is fitted in the seat backrest
frame, door side.
System which contributes towards improving
the protection of the driver and passengers
(with the exception of the rear centre
passenger) in the event of a serious side
impact in order to limit the risk of injury to the
side of the head.
Each curtain airbag is built into the pillars and
the upper passenger compartment area.
Deployment
Impact detection zones
A. Front impact zone.
B. Side impact zone.
Deployment
The curtain airbag is deployed at the same
time as the corresponding lateral airbag in the
event of a serious side impact applied to all or
part of the side impact zone B, perpendicular
to the longitudinal centreline of the vehicle on a
horizontal plane and directed from the outside
towards the inside of the vehicle.
The curtain airbag inflates between the front or
rear occupant of the vehicle and the windows.
8
A lateral airbag is deployed unilaterally in the
event of a serious side impact applied to all or
part of the side impact zone B, perpendicular
to the longitudinal centreline of the vehicle on a
horizontal plane and directed from the outside
towards the inside of the vehicle.
The lateral airbag inflates between the hip and
shoulder of the front occupant of the vehicle
and the corresponding door trim panel.
121
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. The
bag inflates almost instantly (within a few
milliseconds) then deflates within the same
time discharging the hot gas via openings
provided for this purpose.
122
Front airbags
Do not drive holding the steering wheel by its spokes or resting your hands on the centre part
of the wheel.
Passengers must not place their feet on the dashboard.
Do not smoke as deployment of the airbags can cause burns or the risk of injury from a
cigarette or pipe.
Never remove or pierce the steering wheel or hit it violently.
Do not fit or attach anything to the steering wheel or dashboard, this could cause injuries with
deployment of the airbags.
Lateral airbags
Use only approved covers on the seats, compatible with the deployment the lateral airbags.
For information on the range of seat covers suitable for your vehicle, you can contact a
CITROËN dealer.
Refer to the "Accessories" section.
Do not fix or attach anything to the seat backs (clothing...). This could cause injury to the chest
or arms if the lateral airbag is deployed.
Do not sit with the upper part of the body any nearer to the door than necessary.
Curtain airbags
Do not fix or attach anything to the roof. This could cause injury to the head if the curtain
airbag is deployed.
If fitted on your vehicle, do not remove the grab handles installed on the roof, they play a part
in securing the curtain airbags.

succession in the instrument panel
screen.
The gear change requests are only acted on if
the engine speed permits.
It is not necessary to release the accelerator
during gear changes.
When braking or slowing down, the gearbox
changes down automatically to allow the
vehicle to accelerate in the correct gear.
On sharp acceleration, the gearbox will not
change up unless the driver acts on the gear
lever or the steering mounted paddles.
You can change mode at any time, be
moving the gear lever from M to A or
the other way round.
Never select neutral N while the vehicle
is moving.
126
Engagement of reverse gear is
accompanied by an audible signal.
At very low speed, if reverse gear is requested,
this will only be acted on when the vehicle is
immobilised.
At high speed, if reverse gear is requested,
the N indicator flashes and the gearbox goes
into neutral. To engage a gear again, put the
gear lever in position A or M.
Driving
Stopping the vehicle
Before switching off the engine, you can:
- move to position N to engage neutral,
or
- leave the gear engaged; in this case, it will
not be possible to move the vehicle.
In all cases when parking, you must
apply the parking brake to immobilise
the vehicle.
When immobilising the vehicle, with
the engine running, you must place the
gear lever in neutral N.
Before carrying out any work in the
engine compartment, ensure that the
gear lever is in neutral N and that the
parking brake is applied.
Operating fault
With the ignition on, the flashing of AUTO,
accompanied by an audible signal and a
message in the screen, indicates a malfunction
of the gearbox.
Have it checked by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
If the ambient temperature is
below -23°C, the engine should be left
running at idle for four minutes, in order
to ensure the correct operation and
durability of the engine and gearbox.
When traversing a flooded road or a
ford, drive at walking pace.

Gear shift indicator*
System which reduces fuel consumption by advising the driver to change up.
With an electronic gearbox, the system
is only active in manual mode.
Operation
The system intervenes only when driving
economically.
Depending on the driving situation and your
vehicle's equipment, the system may advise
you to skip one or more gears. You can
follow this instruction without engaging the
intermediate gears.
The gear engagement recommendations must
not be considered compulsory. In fact, the
configuration of the road, the amount of traffic
and safety remain determining factors when
choosing the best gear. Therefore, the driver
remains responsible for deciding whether or not
to follow the advice given by the system.
This function cannot be deactivated.
* Depending on engine.
128
Example:
-
You are in third gear.
-
You press the accelerator pedal
moderately.
-
The system may suggest that you engage
a higher gear, if appropriate.
The information appears in the instrument
panel in the form of an arrow accompanied by
the suggested gear.
In the case of driving which makes
particular demands on the performance
of the engine (firm pressure on the
accelerator pedal, for example, when
overtaking...), the system will not
recommend a gear change.
The system never suggests:
- engaging first gear,
- engaging reverse gear,
- engaging a lower gear.
Driving
Hill start assist
(with the 6-speed
electronic gearbox
system)
System which holds your vehicle temporarily
(approximately 2 seconds) when starting on a
slope, the time it takes to move your foot from
the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal.
This function is only active when:
- the vehicle is completely stationary, with
your foot on the brake pedal,
- certain conditions on a slope are met,
- with the driver’s door closed.
The hill start assist function cannot be
deactivated.
Operation
On an ascending slope, with the vehicle
stationary, the vehicle is held momentarily
when you release the brake pedal:
- provided you are in automated mode
(position A) or in manual mode (position M)
on an electronic gearbox.
Do not leave the vehicle while it is being
held in the hill start assist phase.
If you need to leave the vehicle with
the engine running, manually apply
the parking brake then ensure that the
parking brake warning lamp is on (not
flashing) in the instrument panel.
On a descending slope, with the vehicle
stationary and reverse gear engaged, the
vehicle is held momentarily when you
release the brake pedal.

Driving
Stop & Start
The Stop & Start system puts the engine temporarily into standby - STOP mode - during stops in the traffic (red lights, traffic jams, or other...). The
engine restarts automatically - START mode - as soon as you want to move off. The restart takes place instantly, quickly and silently.
Perfect for urban use, the Stop & Start system reduces fuel consumption and exhaust emissions as well as the noise level when stationary.
Operation
Going into engine STOP mode
The "ECO" warning lamp comes
on in the instrument panel and the
engine goes into standby:
-
with the 6-speed electronic gearbox
system, at speeds below 5 mph (8 km/h),
when you press the brake pedal or put the
gear lever in position N.
A time counter calculates the
sum of the periods in STOP
mode during a journey. It rests
itself to zero every time the
ignition is switched on with the
key.
For your comfort, during parking
manoeuvres, STOP mode is not
available for a few seconds after
coming out of reverse gear.
STOP mode does not affect the
functionality of the vehicle, such as for
example, braking, power steering...
Never refuel with the engine in STOP
mode; you must switch off the ignition
with the key.
Special cases: STOP mode not
available
STOP mode is not invoked when:
- the driver's door is open,
- the driver's seat belt is not fastened,
- the vehicle has not exceeded 6 mph
(10 km/h) since the last engine start using
the key,
- the engine is needed to maintain a
comfortable temperature in the passenger
compartment,
- demisting is active,
- some special conditions (battery charge,
engine temperature, braking assistance,
ambient temperature...) where the engine is
needed to assure control of a system.
The "ECO" warning lamp flashes for
a few seconds then goes off.
This operation is perfectly normal.

resulting from automatic operation of
START mode.
The system is reactivated automatically
at every new start using the key.
In the event of a fault with the system, the
"ECO OFF" switch warning lamp flashes then
comes on continuously.
Have it checked by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop.
This system requires a battery with a special
specification and technology (reference
numbers available from a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop).
Fitting a battery not listed by
CITROËN introduces the risk of malfunction of
the system.
In the event of a fault in STOP mode, the
vehicle may stall. All of the warning lamps
in the instrument panel come on. It is then
necessary to switch off the ignition and start
the engine again using the key.

Rear parking sensors
System comprising four proximity sensors, located in the rear bumper.
This detects obstacles (person, vehicle, tree,
gate, etc.) behind the vehicle. However, it
cannot detect obstacles located just below the
bumper.
An object, such as a stake, a roadworks
cone or any other similar object may
be detected at the beginning of the
manoeuvre, but may no longer be detected
when the vehicle comes close to it.
Detection zone
Activation
The system is activated as soon as reverse
gear is engaged, accompanied by an audible
signal. The proximity information is given by:
- an audible signal, which becomes more
rapid as the vehicle approaches the

Checks
Checking levels
Check all of these levels regularly, in line with the maintenance and warranty guide. Top them up if necessary, unless otherwise indicated.
If a level drops significantly, have the corresponding system checked by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
Take care when working under the
bonnet, as certain areas of the engine
may be extremely hot (risk of burns)
and the cooling fan could start at any
time (even with the ignition off).
Engine oil level
The check is carried out either when
the ignition is switched on using the
oil level indicator in the instrument
panel for vehicles with an electric oil
level gauge, or using the dipstick.
To ensure that the reading is correct,
your vehicle must be parked on a level
surface with the engine having been off
for more than 30 minutes.
It is normal to top up the oil level between
two services (or oil changes). CITROËN
recommends that you check the level, and top
up if necessary, every 3 000 miles (5 000 kms).
Checking using the dipstick
Refer to the "Petrol engine" or "Diesel engine"
section for the location of the dipstick in the
engine compartment of your vehicle.
F Take the dipstick by its coloured grip and
remove it completely.
F Wipe the end of the dipstick using a clean
non-fluffy cloth.
F Refit the dipstick and push fully down, then
pull it out again to make the visual check:
the correct level is between the marks A
and B.
If you find that the level is above the A mark or
below the B mark, do not start the engine.
- If the level is above the MAX mark (risk
of damage to the engine), contact a
CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
- If the level is below the MIN mark, you
must top up the engine oil.

indicator in the instrument panel is not valid
during the 30 minutes after topping up.
146
Checks
Coolant level
The coolant level should be close
to the "MAX" mark but should never
exceed it.
When the engine is warm, the temperature of
the coolant is regulated by the fan.
The cooling fan may start after switching
off the engine: take care with articles and
clothing that might be caught by the fan
blades.
In addition, as the cooling system is pressurised,
wait at least one hour after switching off the
engine before carrying out any work.
To avoid any risk of scalding, unscrew the cap
by two turns to allow the pressure to drop. When
the pressure has dropped, remove the cap and
top up the level.
Changing the coolant
The coolant does not have to be replaced at
routine services.
Fluid specification
The coolant must conform to the
manufacturer's recommendations.
Screenwash fluid level
Top up the level when necessary.
Fluid specification
For optimum cleaning and to avoid freezing,
this fluid must not be topped up or replaced
with plain water.
In wintry conditions, it is recommended that you
use an ethyl alcohol or methanol based fluid.
Used products
Avoid prolonged contact of used oil or
fluids with the skin.
Most of these fluids are harmful to
health or indeed very corrosive.
Do not discard used oil or fluids into
sewers or onto the ground.
Take used oil to a CITROËN dealer or
a qualified workshop (France) or to an
authorised waste disposal site.

of a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop
is essential when replacing or disconnecting
the battery.
148
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 filter (Diesel)
The start of saturation of the
particle filter is indicated by the
temporary illumination of this
warning lamp accompanied by
a message in the multifunction
screen.
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

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.
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.
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.

Advice on installation
F If you have to fit the chains during a
journey, stop the vehicle on a flat surface
on the side of the road.
FApply the parking brake and position any
wheel chocks to prevent movement of your
vehicle.
F Fit the chains following the instructions
provided by the manufacturer.
F Move off gently and drive for a few
moments, without exceeding 30 mph
(50 km/h).
F Stop your vehicle and check that the snow
chains are correctly tightened.
Avoid driving with snow chains on roads

carried out in a well ventilated area
away from naked flames and sources
of sparks, so as to avoid the risk of
explosion and fire.
Do not try to charge a frozen battery;
the battery must first be thawed out to
avoid the risk of explosion. If the battery
has been frozen, before charging have
it checked by a CITROËN dealer or a
qualified workshop who will check that
the internal components have not been
damaged and the casing is not cracked,
which could cause a leak of toxic and
corrosive acid.

Practical information
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.
Driving advice
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
dealer, it is imperative that it is
fitted in accordance with the vehicle
manufacturer's instructions.
Driving with a trailer places greater demands
on the towing vehicle and the driver must take
particular care.
186
Distribution of loads
Cooling
FDistribute 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.
Refer to the "Technical data" section for details
of the weights and towed loads which apply to
your vehicle.
Side wind
F Take into account the increased sensitivity
to side wind.
F If the warning lamp and the
STOP warning lamp come on,
stop the vehicle and switch off
the engine as soon as possible.
Practical information
Fitting roof bars
To fit longitudinal and/or transverse roof bars, visit your CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.
Braking
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.
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.
The rear parking sensors will be
deactivated automatically if a genuine
CITROËN towbar is used.
Maximum authorised weight on the roof rack: 60 kg.
If the height exceeds 40 cm, adapt the speed of the vehicle to the profile of the road to avoid
damaging the roof bars and the fixings on the roof.
Be sure to refer to national legislation in order to comply with the regulations for transporting
objects which are longer than the vehicle.

Technical data
Identification markings
Various visible markings for the identification of your vehicle.
C. Manufacturer's label.
This number is indicated on a selfdestroying label affixed to the centre pillar,
on the left-hand side.
D. Tyre/paint label.
This label is affixed to the centre pillar, on
the left-hand side.
It bears the following information:
- the tyre pressures, laden and unladen,
- the tyre sizes (including the load index and
speed rating for the tyre),
- the tyre pressure for the spare wheel,
- the paint colour code.
A. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on
the front right door pillar.
This number is engraved on the bodywork
near the hinge.
For access to it, open the right-hand door.
B. VIN on the windscreen lower
crossmember.
The number is on a self-adhesive label
which is visible through the windscreen.
The inflation pressures must be
checked when the tyres are cold, at
least once a month.
If the inflation pressures are too low,
this increases fuel consumption.
