Standby mode for cruise control

Cruise control (CC1) can be deactivated and set in standby mode. This can take place automatically or due to intervention by the driver.

Standby mode means that the function is selected in the centre display but not activated. The symbol in the driver display is extinguished and the cruise control does not then regulate the speed.

Standby mode on driver intervention

Cruise control is deactivated and set to standby mode if any of the following occur:
  • The foot brake is used.
  • The gear selector is moved to the N position.
  • The driver maintains a speed higher than the stored speed for more than 1 minute.

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.

A temporary increase in speed with the accelerator pedal, e.g. during overtaking, does not affect the setting - the car returns to the last stored speed when the accelerator pedal is released.

Automatic standby mode

Automatic standby mode may be activated if any of the following occur, for example:
  • The wheels lose traction.
  • The engine speed is too low/high.
  • The brake temperature is too high.
  • The speed falls below 30 km/h (20 mph).

The driver must then control the speed himself/herself.
