Traﬃc-Aware Cruise Control
Cruising at the Speed Limit
To increase/decrease speed by 1 km/h, move
the lever up or down to theﬁrst position and
release. To increase/decrease speed to the
closest 5 km/h increment, move the lever up/
down to the second position and release. For
example, if you are traveling at 83 km/h and
you move the lever up to the second position
and release, the speed increases to 85 km/h.
You can also increase/decrease speed by
holding the lever in the full up/down position
and releasing when the desired speed displays
below the cruise control icon.
Traﬃc-Aware Cruise Control makes it easy to
cruise at the speed limit. Once you've initially
set a cruising speed, you can adjust the speed
to cruise at the speed limit that is currently
being determined by Speed Assist (see Speed
Assist on page 91). To do so, pull the cruise
control lever toward you and hold
momentarily (about half a second). When you
release, your cruising speed is set to the speed
that is automatically or manually being
determined by Speed Assist, taking into
consideration anyoﬀset you havespeciﬁed.
To cruise at the speed limit that is currently
being determined by Speed Assist, pull the
cruise control lever toward you and hold

Assist on page 91.
Note: When you adjust the cruising speed
based on the speed limit, the set speed does
not change when the speed limit changes. You
must pull and hold the cruise control lever
again to cruise at the new speed limit. You can
also manually adjust your cruising speed at

speed limit, your set speed does not change
when you pull the cruise control lever toward
you and hold momentarily.

from the vehicle ahead, but allows you to drive
slightly closer than your selected distance.

Positioning System) to determine if you are
driving in a region with right or left hand

to provide overtake acceleration. When
