DS 3: Driving / Cruise control - particular recommendations

DS 3 2016-2022 Owners Manual

DS 3. Cruise control - particular recommendations For the safety of everyone, only use the cruise control where the driving conditions allow running at a constant speed and keeping an adequate safety distance.

Remain vigilant when the cruise control is activated. If you hold one of the speed setting modification buttons down, a very rapid change in the speed of your vehicle may occur.

When descending a steep hill, the cruise control system cannot prevent the vehicle from exceeding the set speed. Brake if necessary to control the speed of your vehicle.

On steep climbs or when towing, the set speed may not be reached or maintained.

DS 3. Cruise control - particular recommendations Exceeding the programmed speed setting

You can temporarily exceed the speed setting by pressing the accelerator pedal (the programmed speed flashes).

To return to the speed setting, release the accelerator pedal (when the set speed is reached again, the displayed speed stops flashing).
