Cabin air filters, a fast-growing market

The importance of the product

The main purpose of the cabin air filter is to protect against pollution (dust, soot, combustion gases, bacteria, pollen) that we breathe inside our vehicles daily without realising it.

Poor air quality inside the vehicle causes:

  • allergies, throat irritation, sneezing;
  • tiredness after long periods of driving;
  • poor visibility due to condensation that builds up on the windscreen and side windows.

To ensure the health and general well-being of the driver and passengers on board your vehicle, UFI Filters advises replacing the cabin filter at the recommended intervals.

  • Cabin air filters are the only family of filters which are currently showing double-digit growth rates year on year.
  • They are fitted on more than 85% of vehicles in Europe.

Changing your filter regularly is essential

  • We recommend replacing your filter every 15,000 km, in accordance with the area in which you are driving.
  • In dusty and polluted areas, more regular replacement is recommended.
  • In any case, the cabin air filter must be replaced at least every 12 months.
