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:

  1. Please see chapter "HOLD Function: Drive-off Assistant, Standstill Management" on page 131.

Information
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.

This behavior is typical of the system. There is no fault.
