Active combination filter

Applies to: vehicles without particulate matter sensor

A schematic display represents the effectiveness of the filter. The display visualizes the amount of pollutant particles in the vehicle interior in comparison to the surroundings.

Particulate matter sensor

Applies to: vehicles with particulate matter sensor

A sensor detects the particulate matter concentration (PM2.5) outside and inside the vehicle.

The detected values are displayed as the air quality index (AQI) on a colored scale (1). A value in the green range indicates very good air quality.

The system displays the approximate values, which may differ from actual conditions. In certain situations, no values or values that appear to be implausible may be displayed temporarily, or the system may only be available to a limited extent:

  • in extreme weather conditions
  • when the vehicle is stationary
  • in a car wash
  • if an individual smokes or if dust is stirred up in the vehicle interior
  • if fresh air is introduced in order to prevent the windows from fogging


  • For optimal air quality in the vehicle interior, close all windows and doors and activate A/C cooling mode, the AUTO function, and recirculation mode.
  • Applies to: vehicles with particulate matter sensor: The air quality display only shows the concentration of particulate matter (PM2.5). Other types of air pollution are not displayed.
  • Applies to: vehicles with particulate matter sensor: For technical reasons, the values measured in the vehicle may differ from the values measured by other measuring systems.
