USING CRUISE CONTROL

WARNING

The driver must always make sure that a safe speed is maintained within the speed limit, taking account of traffic and road conditions. Driving at unsafe speeds increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

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

WARNING

Do not use cruise control in heavy traffic, or conditions where a constant road speed cannot be safely maintained. Conditions include, but are not limited to, roads that are winding, wet with rain or snow, slippery or unpaved. In these conditions increases the risk of loss of control of the vehicle.

NOTES

Do not use cruise control when driving off-road.

Cruise control allows the vehicle to automatically maintain a set vehicle speed. The system is operated by controls mounted on the steering wheel. The driver can also intervene at any time by using the brake or accelerator pedals.

While driving at the desired speed, press the SET+ button to activate cruise control. The instrument panel displays an information lamp to confirm that the system is operational. See CRUISE CONTROL (GREEN).

The LIM icon on the steering wheel controls also illuminates green to confirm cruise control is operational.

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

NOTES

Cruise control can only be activated at speeds above 20 mph (32 km/h).

To increase the set speed, press the SET+ button. A single press of the button raises the vehicle's speed by 1 mph (2 km/h). Pressing the accelerator pedal can also increase the set speed. When the new desired speed is reached, press the SET+ button.

NOTES

Cruise control is canceled if the accelerator pedal is pressed to override the system for more than 5 minutes.

Press the - button to lower the set speed. A single press of the button lowers the vehicle's speed by 1 mph (2 km/h).

Press the CAN button to cancel cruise control. The set speed is retained in the system's memory until the vehicle's ignition is switched off.

NOTES

The set speed is cleared if the driver activates All Surface Progress Control (ASPC).

Press the RES button to resume the set speed from the system's memory.

WARNING

The RES button should only be used if the driver is aware of the set speed and intends to return to it. Pressing the RES button when not aware of the set speed may lead to loss of control of the vehicle.

Cruise control also cancels if:

  • The brake pedal is pressed.

  • The gear selector is moved to Neutral (N) or Reverse (R).

  • The anti-lock braking system (ABS) requests a cruise control cancelation.

  • All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) is activated.

Press the LIM button to switch between cruise control and the speed limiter. See SPEED LIMITER OVERVIEW.

NOTES

Cruise control is not available when the speed limiter 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 the speed limiter.
