The cruise control function helps you to maintain your driving speed at a speed that you choose, called the cruising speed.

This cruising speed may be set at any speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).


1 Main “On/Off” switch.

2 Controls for:

a cruising speed activation, storage and increase (+) ;

b decreasing cruising speed (-).

3 Activation with recall of saved cruising speed (R).

5 Switch the function to standby (with cruising speed saved) (O).

4 This control is only activated for vehicles fitted with adaptive cruise control (refer to the information on “adaptive cruise control” in section 2).

The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

This function is an additional driving aid. This function does not take the place of the driver. Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect speed limits and to be vigilant (the driver must always be ready to brake). Cruise control must not be used in heavy traffic, on winding or slippery roads (black ice, aquaplaning, gravel) and during bad weather (fog, rain, side winds etc.).

There is a risk of accidents.

Switching on

Press switch 1 on side .

The indicator light or comes on, lit green, and the message “Cruise control” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by dashes to indicate that the cruise control function is activated and waiting to store a cruising speed.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above approx. 20 mph or 30 km/h), press switch 2 side a (+): the function is activated and the current speed is saved.

The cruising speed replaces the dashes and cruise control is confirmed by displaying of the cruising speed, the message “Cruise control” and depending on the vehicle the indicator light , in addition to the indicator light or .

If you try to activate the function below 20 mph (30 km/h), the message “Invalid speed” will be displayed and the function will remain inactive.


Once a cruising speed is memorised and the cruise control function is active, you may lift your foot off the accelerator pedal.

Please note that you are strongly advised to keep your feet close to the pedals in order to react in an emergency.

Adjusting the cruising speed

The cruising speed can be changed by pressing the switch 2 repeatedly:

- side a (+) to increase the speed;

- side b (-) to reduce the speed.

Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded at any time by depressing the accelerator pedal. While it is being exceeded, the cruising speed flashes on the instrument panel.

Then, release the accelerator: after a few seconds, the vehicle will automatically return to its set cruising speed.

Cruising speed cannot be maintained

When driving down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the cruising speed: the stored speed will flash on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.

The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

Putting the function on standby

The function is set to standby if you:

- use the switch 5 (O);

- the brake pedal;

- depress the clutch pedal or the shift into neutral if the vehicle has an automatic gearbox.

The cruising speed is stored and displayed on the instrument panel accompanied by the message “Memorised”. Standby is confirmed by displaying of cruising speed in grey and the message “Memorised” and depending on the vehicle the indicator light going out.

Returning to the cruising speed

If a speed is stored, it can be recalled, once you are sure that the road conditions are suitable (traffic, road surface, weather conditions, etc.). Press switch 3 (R) if the vehicle speed is above 20 mph (30 km/h).

When the stored speed is recalled, activation of the cruise control is confirmed by displaying of the cruising speed along with the message “Cruise control” and, depending on the vehicle, lighting of the indicator light .

NB: if the speed previously stored is much higher than the current speed, the vehicle will accelerate more rapidly to reach this threshold.

When the cruise control function is put on standby, pressing switch 2 side a (+) reactivates the cruise control function without taking into account the stored speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.

Switching off the function

The cruise control function is deactivated if you press switch 1: in this case a speed is no longer stored. The switching off, depending on the vehicle, of the green indicator light or of the green indicator lights and , and of the associated message on the instrument panel confirm that it is off.

Putting the cruise control on standby or switching it off does not cause a rapid reduction in speed: you must brake by depressing the brake pedal.
