Limitations for adaptive cruise control*1
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC2) may have limitations in certain situations.
Steep roads and/or heavy load
Bear in mind that the adaptive cruise control is primarily intended for use when driving on level road surfaces. The function may have difficulty in keeping the correct distance from the vehicle ahead when driving on steep downhill slopes - in which case, be extra attentive and ready to brake.
Do not use adaptive cruise control if the car has a heavy load or a trailer is connected to the car.
Drive mode Off Road cannot be selected when the adaptive cruise control is activated.
- This is not a collision avoidance system. The driver is always responsible and must intervene if the system does not detect a vehicle ahead.
- The function does not brake for humans or animals, and not for small vehicles such as bicycles and motorcycles. Nor for low trailers, oncoming, slow or stationary vehicles and objects.
- Do not use the function in demanding situations, such as in city traffic, at junctions, on slippery surfaces, with a lot of water or slush on the road, in heavy rain/snow, in poor visibility, on winding roads or on slip roads.
This function uses the car's camera and radar units, which have certain general limitations.
