Temporary deactivation - standby mode

To temporarily disengage cruise control and set it in standby mode:

  • Press the steering wheel button .
> The combined instrument panel's marking (5) and symbol (6) change colour from WHITE to GREY - cruise control is temporarily disengaged.

Standby mode due to driver intervention

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

  • the foot brake is used
  • the clutch pedal is depressed
  • the gear lever/selector is moved to N position
  • the driver maintains speed higher than the stored speed for longer than 1 minute.

The driver must then regulate the speed.

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
  • speed falls below approx. 30 km/h.

The driver must then regulate the speed.
