Press the steering wheel button (2).

The Speed Limiter indicators and symbols in the driver display change colour from GREY to WHITE — the car will now apply its current speed as the maximum speed.

Temporary increase in speed with the accelerator pedal

The speed limiter can also be temporarily overridden with the accelerator pedal without the speed limiter being set in standby mode - e.g. to be able to quickly accelerate the car out of a situation. In which case, proceed as follows:

Fully depress the accelerator pedal and release it so that acceleration is interrupted when the desired speed has been reached.

In this case, the speed limiter is still activated and the driver display's symbol is therefore WHITE.

Fully release the accelerator pedal when the temporary acceleration is finished.

The car is then braked automatically below the last stored maximum speed.
