Air distribution question

I've recently noticed that the passenger side air distribution button is missing the windscreen option? I only have middle, foot well or both combined to select from.... But no windscreen!

Is this normal? Im confused....

It's because when you set the air distribution to the windscreen the vents open for the whole screen so therefore the is no point have this option for the passenger.

That is how it works...the windscreen option is only available for the driver's side climate control (but it works for both passengers). I guess it is because the windscreen vent is common for both passengers.

In my car the button shows the same distribution possibilities on both sides.
I have got the automatic air conditioning. Maybe that is the explanation in case you have the manual version.

No, it's a cost option. Manual air condition is standard.

The button shows the same options, but when you press the 2 buttons, the one on the drivers side displays one more option (windscreen option) when you press it.

Guys, it is only logical.
You don't vent half the windshield, do you?
And it is something the driver decides about, right?

Depends on where in Europe you buy it. In Finland, it's standard on all models.
