Press the steering wheel button (2).

The speed limit markings and symbols in the driver display change colour from WHITE to GREY — Cruise Control is now temporarily deactivated and the driver can temporarily exceed the set speed.

Standby mode on driver intervention

The cruise control is temporarily deactivated and set in standby mode if:

  • the foot brake is used
  • the gear selector is moved to N position
  • the driver maintains a speed higher than the stored speed for longer than 1 minute.

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.

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

Automatic standby mode

Cruise control is temporarily disengaged and set in standby mode if:

  • wheels lose traction
  • engine speed is too low/high
  • brake temperature is too high
  • the speed falls below 30 km/h (20 mph).

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.

Reactivating cruise control from standby mode

Press the steering wheel button (1).

The cruise control markings and symbols in the driver display change colour from GREY to WHITE — the car will now follow the most recently stored speed again.
