Interrupting cruise control operation – OFF
The speed driven before the interruption remains stored in the memory and can be reactivated by pressing the control stalk.
Cruise control operation is interrupted automatically:
Resuming the stored speed – RESUME
The stored speed should only be recalled if traffic and road conditions are conducive to driving at that speed.
Switching cruise control readiness off
The stored desired speed is cleared when the ignition is switched off when the vehicle is parked.
On upward or downward slopes, the set speed cannot always be maintained by cruise control.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Adaptive cruise control maintains any selected speed between approx. 20–100 mph (30–160 km/h) when driving on open roads without you having to use the accelerator.
If a vehicle traveling ahead of you in the same lane is detected as driving slower than the selected speed, adaptive cruise control will automatically maintain a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Adaptive cruise control slows your vehicle down if the distance to the vehicle ahead becomes too short and accelerates your vehicle if the distance increases.
Misuse of Adaptive Cruise Control
If the current traffic situation does not allow you to drive safely at a constant speed and with sufficient distance to the vehicle in front, using the adaptive cruise control can cause accidents.
