DS 3. Adaptive Cruise Control For more information, refer to the General recommendations on the use of driving and manoeuvring aids and the Cruise control - particular recommendations.

This system automatically maintains the vehicle speed at a value set by the driver (speed setting), while respecting a safety distance from the vehicle in front (target vehicle) previously set by the driver. The system automatically manages the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle.

With the Stop & Go function, the system manages braking until the vehicle comes to a complete stop and the restarting of the vehicle.

It can be dangerous to drive if the brake lamps are not in perfect working order.
