Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control System with Humidity Control and Air Filtration (Select Vehicles)

What’s the Benefit?

This available climate-control system helps maintain a comfortable environment for passengers while helping to filter out allergens for sensitive occupants.

The Feature:

The advantages of selecting individual temperature levels for three areas of the cabin are further enhanced by the filtering and conditioning functions.

  • It’s capable of filtering nearly 100 percent of particulates over 8 microns in size (the size of most pollen), as well as about 40 percent of particulates down to 0.3 microns (about the size of diesel emissions).
  • The tri-zone automatic climate-control system lets the driver, front passenger and rear passengers adjust temperature and air distribution to automatically meet their needs.
  • Both front and rear systems are controllable by the driver.
  • With the press of a button, the rear system can be independently adjusted using the control panel in the second row.
  • On models equipped with navigation, the system uses data from the onboard global positioning system receiver to automatically adjust fan speed to compensate for heating from direct sunlight.
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control also features humidity control designed to automatically prevent the windows from fogging.
