Active Cruise Control with Stop Go function ACC

Principle

Using the Cruise Control, a desired speed and a distance to a vehicle ahead can be adjusted using the buttons on the steering wheel.

General information

The system maintains the set speed on clear roads. The vehicle accelerates or brakes automatically. If a vehicle is driving ahead of you, the system adjusts the speed of your vehicle so that the set distance to the vehicle ahead is maintained. The speed is adjusted as far as the given situation allows. The distance can be adjusted in several steps. For safety reasons, it depends on the respective speed. If the vehicle ahead of you brakes to a halt and then proceeds to drive again within a brief period, the system is able to detect this within the given system limits. Depending on the vehicle setting, the cruise control settings may change under certain conditions. For instance, acceleration can change depending on the driving mode.
