ADAPTIVE GESCHWINDIGKEITSREGELUNG (ACC) VERWENDEN

The adaptive cruise control system operates via controls mounted on the steering wheel. The driver can also intervene at any time by the use of the brake or accelerator pedals.

  1. LIM: Press to switch between the speed limiter system and adaptive cruise control. The systems cannot be used simultaneously.

    When in speed limiter mode, the relevant speed limiter warning lamp illuminates. See GESCHWINDIGKEITSBEGRENZER – ÜBERSICHT.

    Selection of adaptive cruise control is confirmed when the speed limiter warning lamp extinguishes. Adaptive cruise control is in stand-by mode until the SET + button is pressed.

    NOTES

    Adaptive cruise control only operates at vehicle speeds in excess of 32 km/h (20 mph).

    CAUTION

    When the vehicle's ignition is switched on, the previous state, either adaptive cruise control or speed limiter, is automatically recalled and activated. The set speed is not recalled.

  2. SET +: Press to set the vehicle's current speed as the set speed. The adaptive cruise control warning lamp illuminates to confirm activation, i.e., no longer in stand-by mode. See GESCHWINDIGKEITSREGELUNG (GRÜN).

    Further pressing of the button raises the set speed above the vehicle's current speed. The speed of the vehicle gradually increases to reach the new set speed.

    NOTES

    The speedometer displays the set speed as a marker, or the message centre displays the speed as a numeric value, depending on the vehicle's specification. The Head-Up Display (HUD) can also display the set speed. See HEAD-UP-DISPLAY (HUD).

  3. RES: Press to resume the adaptive cruise control set speed after it has been disengaged.

  4. < - >: Press to decrease the follow mode gap. See AKTIVIEREN DES FOLGEMODUS.

  5. Press - to decrease the set speed. The speed of the vehicle gradually decreases to reach the new set speed.

  6. < - - - >: Press to increase the follow mode gap.

  7. CAN: Press to cancel but retain the set speed in the memory.
