  • You must pay attention to your vehicle's position in relation to other objects and intervene as needed to ensure safe driving.
  • Always keep the direction of travel in your field of view.

Radar sensor
Adaptive cruise control uses a radar sensor located in the middle of the front apron (arrow).


  • Always keep the radar sensor clean and free of ice and snow to ensure that it is fully functional.
