Adaptive Cruise Control - Gap Control Icon  Press the button to cycle through the four gap settings.
Adaptive Cruise Gap Distance Icon
The selected gap appears in the instrument cluster display as shown by the bars in the image.
Note:   The gap setting is time dependent and therefore, the distance adjusts with your vehicle speed.
Note:   It is your responsibility to select a gap appropriate to the driving conditions.
Adaptive Cruise Control Gap Settings

Graphic Display, Bars Indicated Between Vehicles   Gap Distance   Dynamic Behavior  
1   Closest.   Sport.  
2   Close.   Normal.  
3   Medium.   Normal.  
4   Far.   Comfort.  

Each time you switch the system on, it selects the last chosen gap setting.
Following a Vehicle
When a vehicle ahead of you enters the same lane or a slower vehicle is ahead in the same lane, the vehicle speed adjusts to maintain the gap setting.
Note:   When you are following a vehicle and you switch on a turn signal lamp, adaptive cruise control may provide a small, temporary acceleration to help you pass.
Your vehicle maintains a consistent gap from the vehicle ahead until:
  • The vehicle in front of you accelerates to a speed above the set speed.
  • The vehicle in front of you moves out of the lane you are in.
  • You set a new gap distance.
 The system applies the brakes to slow down your vehicle to maintain a safe gap distance from the vehicle in front of you. The system only applies limited braking. You can override the system by applying the brakes.
Note:   The brakes may emit noise when applied by the system.
If the system determines that its maximum braking level is not sufficient, an audible warning sounds, a message appears in the instrument cluster display and an indicator flashes when the system continues to brake. Take immediate action.
