Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC)

Mon Jun 07, 2021 6:24 am


I just bought a 2018 Outlander PHEV Intense +
This car has the function that measures the distance of a car in front when in ACC and if the car in front slows down my car will also slow down.
Is there a way to switch this function OFF and just use the ACC in a standard way?

Thanks a lot

Yes. As it states in the manual. Press and hold the ACC button when activating it and you will get 'traditional' speed hold cruise control. You have to do that every time you want to use it.

I'll just chime in that I really love this feature .... mostly :) The "problem" I have is that at times I don't know that it has slowed down behind a pokey driver and, being in my own little world, I don't pass and resume my speed :?
