Modifying the cruise speed setting

Cruise control must be active.

To modify the cruise speed setting, based on the current speed of the vehicle:

  • Briefly press button 2 or 3 to change the value in steps of + or - 1 mph (km/h).
  • Press and hold button 2 or 3 to change the value in steps of + or - 5 mph (km/h).

DS 3. off. Malfunction Pressing and holding button 2 or 3 results in a rapid change in the speed of the vehicle.

DS 3. off. Malfunction As a precaution, we recommend setting a cruise speed fairly close to the current speed of your vehicle, to avoid any sudden acceleration or deceleration of the vehicle.

To change the cruise speed setting using memorised speed settings and from the touch screen:

  • Press button 5 to display the memorised speed settings.
  • Press the touch screen button for the desired speed setting.

The selection screen closes after a few moments.

This setting becomes the new cruise speed.

To modify the cruise speed setting using the speed suggested by the Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation shown on the instrument panel:

  • Press button 5 once; a message is displayed to confirm the memorisation request.
  • Press button 5 again to save the suggested speed.

The speed is immediately shown on the instrument panel as the new speed setting.
