Selecting and activating cruise control functions

Updated 10/4/2021

Selecting and activating cruise control functions

The cruise control functions have to be selected in the centre display first before they can be activated using a steering wheel button. This is applicable to the speed limiter (SLSpeed Limiter)*, automatic speed limiter (ASLAutomatic Speed Limiter), cruise control (CCCruise Control), adaptive cruise control (ACCAdaptive Cruise Control) and Pilot Assist.

Press the steering wheel button or to scroll to the symbol for the desired function.

  • Speed limiter:
  • Cruise control:
  • Adaptive cruise control:
  • Pilot Assist:

The symbol in the driver display is grey – the function is selected.

When a function is selected – press the steering wheel button to activate it.

The symbol in the driver display lights up – the function is started and the current speed is stored as the maximum speed.

If the function is set to standby mode – press the steering wheel button to reactivate it.

The driver display's cruise control markings light up – the car then continues to follow the last speed stored.

The automatic speed limiter can be activated and deactivated as a supplement to the speed limiter.
