The system enhances adaptive cruise control with additional, innovative functions.
It predictively optimises your speed. With the aid of high-resolution navigation data and information supplied by the radar and video sensors,
You can adapt the driving feel by pressing the SPORT button. Depending on the mode, the system selects the optimum parameters for engine management and gear selection, including coasting and deceleration.
The system uses the knowledge gained from its prediction horizon of up to three kilometres to formulate the optimum timing for acceleration, constant speed driving and deceleration phases to provide a harmonious driving experience.
Imagine, for example, that a speed restriction is in force further along the route but the traffic sign is not yet in sight of the driver: the system already knows that deceleration will be required and initiates a fuel-saving coasting manoeuvre.

At speeds of up to approximately 60 km/h, the system uses gentle steering inputs to keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane, regulates the distance from vehicles in front and follows the queue ahead where system limitations allow. To do this, Traffic Jam Assist tracks roadway markings and other vehicles on the carriageway. The benefit? Appreciable stress relief and greater comfort on long journeys.
