Observe the following precautions:
If the cruise control system is left on (CRUISE indicator lamp in the instrument cluster illuminates), the cruise control may be activated unintentionally. Keep the cruise control system switched off ( /CRUISE control lamp OFF) when the cruise control is not in use in order to avoid unintentional speed setting.
Only use the cruise control system when driving on an open road in good weather.
Do not use the cruise control system when it may not be safe to maintain a constant vehicle speed:
- When driving in heavy or changing traffic flow.
- On slippery (rainy, icy or snow-covered) roads.
- On hilly or winding roads.
- Very windy conditions.
Cruise control switch
- CRUISE: Activates cruise control. CANCEL: Cancels cruise control.
- RES+: Resets or increases the cruise control speed.
- SET-: Sets or reduces the cruise control speed.
To set the cruise control speed
- Press the CRUISE button on the steering wheel to engage the system. The /CRUISE indicator light will illuminate.
- Accelerate to the desired speed, which should be more than 40 km/h (25 mph).
On vehicles with manual transmission, the brake pedal must be depressed at least once after the engine has been started in order to set the cruise control.
- Press the lever (1) down (SET-) and release. The SET indicator will illuminate.
- Release the accelerator pedal.
The car may decelerate or accelerate slightly when driving uphill or downhill.
To increase cruise control speed
- Press the lever (1) up (RES+) and hold it while watching SET speed on the instrument cluster. Release the lever when the desired speed is displayed and the vehicle accelerates to that speed.
- Push the lever (1) up (RES+) and immediately release it. Cruise speed will increase by 2.0 km/h (1.2 mph) each time the lever is pulled.
To reduce cruise control speed
- Press the lever (1) down (SET-) and hold it. Your car will gradually decelerate. Release the lever at the speed you wish to maintain.
- Push the lever (1) down (SET-) and release it immediately. The cruising speed will decrease by 2.0 km/h (1.2 mph) each time the lever is pulled down.
- Lightly depress the brake pedal. When the car has reached the desired speed, press the lever (1) down (SET-).
To accelerate temporarily with cruise control engaged
- Depress the accelerator pedal. When you take your foot off the accelerator pedal, the car will return to the previously set speed.
- If you push the lever down (SET-) at an increased speed, the cruise control will maintain the increased speed.
Cruise control will be cancelled when:
- Depressing the brake pedal.
- depressing the clutch pedal. (for a vehicle with manual transmission)
- pressing the CANCEL button on the steering wheel.
- Shifting the gear lever to the N (neutral) position. (For a car with automatic transmission)
- Vehicle speed is reduced below the memorised speed by 15 km/h (9 mph).
- Vehicle speed is reduced to below approx. 40 km/h (25 mph).
- ESC (Electronic Stability Control) is operating.
- Shift into 2nd gear in sport mode.
- Each of the above actions will cancel the cruise control (the SET indicator in the instrument cluster goes out) but only pressing the CRUISE button will switch the system off.
- If you wish to resume cruise control operation, press the lever up (RES+) located on the steering wheel. You will return to the previously set speed unless the system has been switched off using the CRUISE button.
- To resume the previously set Cruise Control speed Press the lever (1) up (RES+). If the vehicle speed exceeds 40 km/h (25 mph), the vehicle will return to the preset speed.
To disengage cruise control
- Press the CRUISE button (control indicator / CRUISE extinguishes).
- Switch off the engine.
