I have a 2019 Cayenne. I have had it about 4 months, last car was a Range Rover Sport.

The ventilation seems lazy. The Range Rover would apply ac if the car was hot to cool it rapidly. It would also always have a decent ventilation flow.

The cayenne seems often “muggy” inside and the temperature takes a long time to sort itself out without any particular urgency.

I run it at 22.5 degrees on auto.

To make it cool the car I tend to bring it down to about 20 and then put it back up later.

Is this “normal”, any suggestions or a fault ?

Many thanks

Have you tried adjusting the climate comfort style on the climate page? I don't have a major problem with ours on the default settings, which sit at 21C +/- 1C depending how I'm feeling or what I'm wearing, but I agree it can sometimes feel like there isn't a lot of air movement when it's up to temperature. If you change the climate style to a stronger setting for the dash vents (nb. not the fan setting), it feels like there's more airflow while not mucking up the auto distribution and temperature.

When I moved on from the previous generation Cayenne to the current one my immediate reaction was that the airflow, particularly from the body/face vents was not as good, requiring a higher (and noisier) fan setting to achieve the same flow. It doesn’t help that the vents have been moved lower on the dash. Once up to the required temperature on a run, it bothers me less. I usually have it on 21 degrees, 22.5 seems a little high...

Thank you both for your replies.

I have been away ans just looked in the car now. I have upped the comfort style to “strong” so will see what that does.

Many thanks.

I have spent a while looking at the Cayenne HVAC system.
One thing I have noticed, and worth mentioning is that there are individual temp sensors for each vent, meaning very accurate heat distribution - when the vents are open. If the side vents are closed the system can over-compensate in an attempt to achieve the selected temperature (the sensor is still monitored but the air in the ducting backs up if the vent is closed so temp variations can be quite wide as the controller tries in vain to affect the blowout temp).

To follow up I am now out of quarantine and have used the car with ventilation set to strong.

It is transformed - fast cool down and lots of air flow.

Thank you
