Adaptive cruise control*

Relaxed and comfortable on long journeys: adaptive cruise control can even be used on busy roads and in dense lines of traffic.

The system measures the distance to the vehicle ahead by means of a special radar sensor and controls the speed, ensuring it does not exceed the set value. In addition, adaptive cruise control automatically maintains a constant distance to the vehicle ahead.

If the driver’s intervention is required to sufficiently brake the vehicle, a signal is automatically given.

The driver can choose between four distance programmes and adjust the system's dynamics to suit personal preferences: the range of programmes comprises Distance 1 (sporty), Distances 2 and 3 (standard) and Distance 4 (comfortable).

Even when adaptive cruise control is activated, the driver is still responsible for monitoring the car’s speed and the distance from the vehicle in front. Adaptive cruise control does not react to stationary objects or approaching vehicles.
