Peugeot 2008: Ease of use and comfort / Heating and Ventilation

Air intake

The air circulating in the passenger compartment is filtered and originates either from the exterior, via the grille located at the base of the windscreen, or from the inside in air recirculation mode.


Depending on version, the controls are accessible in the "Air conditioning" touch screen menu or are grouped together in the control panel on the centre console.

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation Using the ventilation and air conditioning system

When towing the maximum load on a steep gradient in high temperatures, switching off the air conditioning increases the available engine power, enhancing the towing capacity.

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation Avoid driving for too long with the ventilation off or with prolonged operation of interior air recirculation. Risk of misting and deterioration of the air quality!

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation If the interior temperature is very high after the vehicle has stood for a long time in the sunshine, air 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.

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation Condensation created by the air conditioning results in a discharge of water underneath the vehicle. This is perfectly normal.

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation Servicing the ventilation and air conditioning system

We recommend using a composite passenger compartment filter. Thanks to its special active additive, this type of filter helps to purify the air breathed by the occupants and keep the passenger compartment clean (by reducing allergic symptoms, unpleasant odours and greasy deposits).

Peugeot 2008. Heating and Ventilation Stop & Start

The heating and air conditioning systems only operate when the engine is running.

Temporarily deactivate the Stop & Start system to maintain a comfortable temperature in the passenger compartment.

For more information on the Stop & Start, refer to the corresponding section.

Selecting this mode reduces electrical energy consumption, but restricts the performance of the heating and air conditioning systems, although it does not deactivate them.
