ADAPTIVE SPEED LIMITER

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See SPEED LIMITER SAFETY.

NOTES

The adaptive speed limiter does not operate if the traffic sign recognition system is not operating. See TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION.

The speed limiter controls are located on the right-hand side of the steering wheel:

  1. Speed control rocker switch. Push the rocker switch upwards to select SET+. Push the rocker switch downwards to select SET-. Push the speed control rocker switch inwards to select RES.

  2. CAN button.

  3. LIM button.

Press the LIM button (3) on the steering wheel to toggle between adaptive speed limiter and cruise control. Depending on vehicle status, the instrument panel displays either the speed limiter or the adaptive speed limiter information lamp. See SPEED LIMITER (GREEN) and ADAPTIVE SPEED LIMITER (GREEN).

If the speed limiter information lamp is displayed, press and hold the CAN button (2). The adaptive speed limiter information lamp replaces the speed limiter information lamp to confirm that the adaptive speed limiter has been selected.

The adaptive speed limiter does not operate until activated. Roll the set speed rocker switch (1) upwards (SET+) or push inwards (RES) to activate the adaptive speed limiter. The Head-Up Display (HUD) and instrument panel display the detected speed limits as icons.

If the adaptive speed limiter detects a speed limit lower than the current vehicle speed, it automatically slows the vehicle to meet the speed limit.

If the system detects a speed limit higher than the current vehicle speed, it allows the driver to accelerate up to the speed limit.

NOTES

Adaptive speed limiter only activates if the vehicle's speed is less than 30 km/h (20 mph) over the set speed. If the vehicle's speed is 30 km/h (20 mph) above the set speed, the instrument panel displays a warning message and the system does not activate.

Press the CAN button to suspend adaptive speed limiter operation. Push the set speed rocker switch(1) inwards (RES) or roll upwards (SET+) to resume adaptive speed limiter operation.

The adaptive speed limiter's detected speed limit can be overridden if rapid acceleration is required. Fully press the accelerator pedal to accelerate past the adaptive speed limiter's set speed. When the vehicle's speed drops below the adaptive speed limiter's detected speed limit, any speed limitations are reapplied.

The system's detected speed limit can be adjusted, if required, to control the vehicle’s speed at just above or below the detected speed limit. To adjust the detected speed limit:

  1. Roll the set speed rocker (1) upwards (SET+) to raise the maximum vehicle speed 2 km/h (1 mph) above the detected speed limit. The maximum increase available is 10 km/h (6 mph) above the detected speed limit. Roll and hold the set speed rocker switch (1) (SET+) to raise the maximum vehicle speed in larger increments above the detected speed limit.

  2. Roll the set speed rocker switch (1) downwards (SET-) to reduce the maximum vehicle speed 2 km/h (1 mph) below the detected speed limit. The maximum decrease available is 10 km/h (6 mph) below the detected speed limit. Roll and hold the set speed rocker switch (1) downwards (SET-) to reduce the maximum vehicle speed in larger increments below the detected speed limit.

NOTES

Any adjustments to the system's detected speed limit are lost if the speed limiter is deactivated, or if the vehicle’s ignition is switched off.
