ADAPTIVE SPEED LIMITER

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See SPEED LIMITER SAFETY.

NOTES

The adaptive speed limiter does not operate if the traffic sign recognition system is not operating. See TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION.

  1. LIM.

  2. CANCEL.

  3. SET+ position.

  4. - position.

  5. Speed control and RES.

Press the LIM button to switch the adaptive speed limiter on. Depending on vehicle status, either the speed limiter or the adaptive speed limiter information lamp is displayed in the instrument panel.

If speed limiter is displayed, press and hold the CANCEL button. The speed limiter information lamp is replaced with the adaptive speed limiter information lamp to confirm that the adaptive speed limiter has been selected.

The adaptive speed limiter does not operate until activated. Move and release the speed control switch (5) to the SET+ position (3), or press the speed control (RES) switch to activate the adaptive speed limiter. The Head-Up Display (HUD) and instrument panel display the detected speed limits as icons.

NOTES

In some markets the Speed Limiter function is not applicable and therefore the LIM button will have no functionality.

If the system detects a speed limit lower than the current vehicle speed, it automatically slows the vehicle to meet the speed limit. Press the speed control (RES) switch to increase the rate of deceleration.

If the system detects a speed limit higher than the current vehicle speed, it allows the driver to accelerate up to the speed limit. Press the speed control (RES) switch to increase the rate of acceleration.

Press the CANCEL button to suspend adaptive cruise control operation. Press the speed control (RES) switch, or move and release it to the SET+ position (3), to resume adaptive speed limiter operation.

The adaptive speed limiter detected speed limit can be overridden if rapid acceleration is required. Rapid acceleration is also known as kickdown.

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

The system's detected speed limit can be adjusted, if required, to control the vehicle’s speed at just above or below the detected speed limit. To adjust the detected speed limit:

  1. Move and release the speed control switch to the SET+ position (3). The maximum vehicle speed rises to 2 km/h (1 mph) above the detected speed limit. The maximum increase available is 10 km/h (6 mph) above the detected speed limit. Move and hold the speed control switch in the SET+ position. The maximum vehicle speed rises directly to 10 km/h (6 mph) above the detected speed limit.

  2. Move and release the speed control switch to the - position (4). The maximum vehicle speed lowers to 2 km/h (1 mph) below the detected speed limit. The maximum decrease available is 10 km/h (6 mph) below the detected speed limit. Move and hold the speed control switch in the - position. The maximum vehicle speed lowers directly to 10 km/h (6 mph) below the detected speed limit.

NOTES

Any adjustments to the adaptive speed limiter's detected speed limit are lost if the speed limiter is activated. Adjustments are also lost if the vehicle’s electrical system is switched off.
