WARNING

The speed limiter is a driving aid only. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving in a manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and other road users, remains the driver’s responsibility. Driving without due care and attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

In certain conditions, such as a steep downhill gradient, the vehicle's speed may exceed the set speed limit. Driver intervention may be required as engine braking is unable to maintain or reduce the vehicle's speed. Driving at speeds above the set speed limit may infringe on local laws.

NOTES

The speed limiter is not available when cruise control is in operation. When the vehicle's ignition is first switched on, the vehicle reverts to whichever system was used previously, either cruise control or speed limiter.

The speed limiter allows the driver to manually restrict the maximum vehicle speed via the steering wheel controls. When a maximum speed limit is set, the vehicle responds normally until the set speed is reached. At this point, the vehicle stops accelerating.

NOTES

The speed limiter only operates at speeds upward of 30 km/h (19 mph).

Press the LIM button to toggle between the speed limiter and cruise control functions. The instrument panel displays an information lamp that confirms the speed limiter has been selected. See GESCHWINDIGKEITSBEGRENZER (ORANGE).

The speed limiter does not operate until activated. To activate the speed limiter:

  1. Press the SET+ button. The vehicle's speed is now limited to the speed it was travelling at when the button was pressed. If the vehicle speed is below the minimum limit speed when the SET+ button is pressed, the system sets the speed limit to 30 km/h (19 mph).

  2. Press and hold the SET+ button to increase the speed limiter's set speed in 10 km/h (5 mph) steps. Press and release the SET+ button to increase the speed limiter's set speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

NOTES

If the vehicle speed is more than 30km/h (19 mph) above a previous limit speed, the instrument panel displays a warning message.

Press and hold the - button to lower the speed limiter's set speed in 10 km/h (5 mph) steps. Press and release the - button to lower the speed limiter's set speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

Press the CAN button to suspend speed limiter operation. Press either the RES button or the SET+ button to resume speed limiter operation. Pressing the RES button activates the previous set speed. Pressing the SET+ button limits the vehicle's speed to the speed it is travelling at when the button is pressed.

The speed limiter's set speed can be overridden if rapid acceleration is required. Rapid acceleration is also known as kickdown. See AUTOMATIKGETRIEBE.

If kickdown is required, the vehicle accelerates past the speed limiter's set speed. When the vehicle's speed drops below the speed limiter's set speed, any speed limitations are reapplied.

To override the speed limiter, fully press the accelerator pedal.
