Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips but is of little use on an urban driver’s daily commute. Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow53 allows you to set a desired speed but also maintain a desired interval to the car detected ahead. Now you enjoy the benefits of cruise control in light traffic.
- While cruising, engage the ACC and the system prompts you to select a short, medium, long or extra long interval to a vehicle detected ahead.
- Once speed is set (between 25 and 90 MPH), you can raise or lower it with the steering-wheel controls. Your speed setting is revealed on the Multi-Information Display (MID).
- At speeds below the set speed, ACC maintains the set interval from a car detected ahead, modulating the throttle and applying moderate braking where appropriate. The interval can be maintained down to and including a full stop.
- After stopping, tapping either the throttle or pressing the SET or RES buttons on the steering wheel, instructs the TLX to reacquire the desired interval.
