Cruise control* - managing speed

The cruise control (CC – Cruise Control) helps the driver to maintain an even speed.

It is possible to activate, set and change the stored speed.

To start the cruise control:

  • Press the steering wheel button for CRUISE (without speed limiter) or P3-820 Ikon farthållare 1 (with speed limiter).
>The cruise control symbol (6) in the combined instrument panel illuminates - Cruise control is in standby mode.

To activate cruise control:

  • At the required speed - press the steering wheel button Ikon farthållare 2 or Ikon farthållare 3.
>The current speed is stored in the memory and the combined instrument panel's marking (5) illuminates at the selected speed and the symbol (6) changes from GREY to WHITE - the car then follows the stored speed.


Cruise Control cannot be enabled at speeds below 30 km/h (20 mph).

Changing the stored speed

Stored speed is changed with short or long presses on the Ikon farthållare 2 or Ikon farthållare 3 steering wheel button.

To adjust +/- 5 km/h (+/- 5 mph):
  • Use short presses - each press gives +/- 5 km/h (+/- 5 mph).
To adjust +/- 1 km/h (+/- 1 mph):
  • Hold down the button and release it at the required speed.

Last press made is stored in the memory.

If speed is increased using the accelerator pedal prior to pressing the Ikon farthållare 2/Ikon farthållare 3 button, then it is the car's current speed when the button is pressed that is stored.

A temporary increase in speed with the accelerator pedal, e.g. during overtaking, does not affect the cruise control setting - the car returns to the last stored speed when the accelerator pedal is released.


If any of the Cruise Control buttons are held depressed for several minutes then it is blocked and deactivated. To be able to reactivate Cruise Control, the car must be stopped and the engine restarted.
