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

Adaptive cruise control allows the driver to set a cruising speed for the vehicle. The vehicle’s speed automatically reduces if a slower moving vehicle is detected in the lane ahead. The system then maintains a constant gap to the vehicle ahead. If the system detects that the slower moving vehicle is no longer present, it automatically raises the vehicle’s speed back to the set speed. In some scenarios, adaptive cruise control also brings the vehicle to a standstill, if required.


The adaptive cruise control system illuminates the brake lights when it applies the brakes. A noise may also be heard.

Adaptive cruise control comprises a number of different sub-features including:


Adaptive cruise control is not available when the speed limiter is in operation. When the vehicle is first switched on, the vehicle reverts to whichever system was used previously.

Push the LIM switch (4) on the steering wheel controls to toggle between speed limiter and adaptive cruise control functions.

The instrument panel displays a message if a fault occurs in the adaptive cruise control system or in any of its sub-features. If this occurs, adaptive cruise control does not operate. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer at the earliest opportunity.
