Displaying the distance to the vehicle up ahead
If a vehicle has been detected up ahead, the vehicle symbol C appears on the multifunction display or status display B.
Gray area D indicates the current distance from the vehicle ahead.
Suitable for traveling at speed in lines.
The time gap is one second. At a speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) this corresponds to around 36 yards (33 meters).
Suitable for comfortable cruising in lines.
The time gap is 1.3 seconds. At a speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) this corresponds to around 47 yards (43 meters).
This corresponds to the general recommendation under road traffic regulations ("half speedometer distance"). The time gap is 1.8 seconds. At a speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) this corresponds to around 66 yards (60 meters).
Suitable for traveling on interstates.
The time gap is 2.3 seconds. At a speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) this corresponds to around 84 yards (77 meters).
Automatic braking until the vehicle comes to a standstill
If the vehicle in front stops, your vehicle will slow down and come to a stop within the control limits of the system if adaptive cruise control is active.
The light indicator on the instrument panel lights up.
The vehicle is actively held in a stationary position.
For information on the HOLD function:
Depending on the traffic flow, e.g., in slow-moving traffic, deceleration begins with a slow creeping phase that ends with the vehicle in a stationary position.
When adaptive cruise control is in operation or the HOLD function is active, the driver may feel a difference in the brake pedal and hydraulic noises may be heard.
This behavior is typical of the system. There is no fault.
Moving off again
Depending on the operating status of adaptive cruise control, it is possible to drive off again after the vehicle has stopped and automatic speed and distance control can start again.
Adaptive cruise control (ACC) active
It is not possible to move off as long as the vehicle ahead remains stationary.
Adaptive cruise control (ACC) ready
Automatic speed and distance control can only start again once the driver's vehicle is moving.
Interrupting and resuming speed and distance control
Interrupting speed and distance control – OFF
