Your vehicle has six different air flow options: Max A/C (air is blown from the center and side ventilators at the coldest setting, Upper Air (air flows at torso level), Upper and Lower Air (air flows at both torso and foot level), Lower Air (air flows at foot level), Lower Air and Defroster (air flows at foot level and from the defroster), and Defroster (air primarily flows from the defroster). To choose the air flow option, turn the Air Flow Control dial to your preferred setting.
