ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL SAFETY.

WARNING

The RES (resume) switch should only be pressed if the driver is aware of the set cruising speed and intends to return to it. Pressing the RES switch when not aware of the set cruising speed may lead to a loss of control of the vehicle and personal injury.

When adaptive cruise control is operating, it monitors the area in front of the vehicle to identify any vehicles which are in its path. The vehicle's cruising speed is controlled accordingly. See FOLLOW MODE.

Adaptive cruise control may also react to stationary vehicles that it previously recognised as travelling in the same direction. See QUEUE ASSIST.

The adaptive cruise control switch pack is located on the right-hand side of the steering wheel:

  1. Speed control rocker switch:

    Roll the rocker switch upwards to select SET+.

    Roll the rocker switch downwards to select SET-.

    Push the speed control rocker switch inwards to select RES (resume).

  2. CAN: Cancels the cruise control.

  3. LIM: Switches between speed limiter and cruise control. See SPEED LIMITER.

  4. Adaptive cruise control: reduce gap control.

  5. Adaptive cruise control: increase gap control.

Roll the set rocker switch (1) upwards to set a desired cruising speed. The vehicle’s cruising speed is set at the speed it was travelling when the switch was pressed. Use the gap control switches (4) and (5) to adjust the set gap between the vehicle in front when follow mode is engaged. See FOLLOW MODE.

The instrument panel displays a green information lamp to inform the driver that adaptive cruise control is engaged.

The steering wheel icon also illuminates green when adaptive cruise control is active.
