Automatic braking to a standstill

If the vehicle in front stops, your vehicle will slow down and come to a stop within the control limits of the system if adaptive cruise control is active. The light indicator lights up on the instrument panel.

The vehicle is actively held stationary.

For information on the HOLD function:

  1. Please see chapter “HOLD Function: Drive-Off Assistant, Standstill Management” on page 144.

Information
Depending on the traffic flow, e.g. slow-moving traffic, stopping is initiated by a slow creeping phase, which ends with the vehicle at a standstill.


Information
When adaptive cruise control is operating normally or when the HOLD function is active, the brake pedal may feel different and you may hear hydraulic noises.

This behavior is normal for the system. It is not a fault.

The vehicle can be driven off again after being stopped and speed and distance control will be resumed, depending on the operating state of the adaptive cruise control system.

  2. Press the control lever on the steering wheel up (position 4, RESUME).
