Limitations for overtaking assistance with Adaptive Cruise Control

Updated 7/23/2018

The overtaking assistance function may have limited functionality in certain situations.


When using the Overtaking Assistance System, the driver should be aware that there may be undesired acceleration if the conditions suddenly change.

Some situations should therefore be avoided, such as if:

  • the car is approaching an exit for turn-of that is in the same direction as overtaking would normally occur.
  • the vehicle ahead slows down before the driver's car has crossed over into the overtaking lane
  • the traffic in the overtaking lane slows down
  • a right-hand drive car is driven in a county with left-hand traffic (or vice versa).

Situations of this kind can be avoided by temporarily setting ACCAdaptive Cruise Control in the standby mode.
