Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips, but can be of little use on an urban driver's daily routine. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also keep a set interval behind a car detected ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.
- While cruising, engage the ACC, and the system will prompt you to select a short, medium or long interval from a vehicle detected ahead.
- Once a speed is set (between 20 MPH and 95 MPH) you can raise or lower it with the steering-wheel controls while the Multi-Information Display (MID) informs you what MPH you are setting.
- At speeds below the set speed, ACC will maintain the set interval, modulating the throttle and applying moderate braking where appropriate. The interval will be maintained even if the forward vehicle slows to a stop.
- After stopping, a tap on the throttle instructs the car to continue maintaining the desired interval between the vehicles.
