Setting the cruise control during your urban commute? Acura technology makes it possible. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed but also maintain a desired interval from the car detected ahead so you enjoy the benefits of cruise control in light traffic.
- While cruising, engage the ACC and the system will prompt you to select a short, medium or long interval from the vehicle detected ahead.
- Once a speed is set (between 20 and 95) you can raise or lower it with the steering-wheel controls while the MID informs you what MPH you are setting.
- At speeds below the set speed, ACC will maintain the set interval by modulating the throttle and applying moderate braking when appropriate. If the vehicle detected ahead slows to a stop, the MDX will too.
- After stopping, a tap on the throttle instructs the car to continue maintaining the desired interval between the vehicles.
