➀ CRUISE indicator
➁ SET indicator
The cruise control system allows you to
program the vehicle to maintain a con-

the accelerator pedal.
This system is designed to function
above approximately 25 mph (40 km/h).
• During normal cruise control opera-

or reactivated after applying the
brakes, the cruise control will ener-

This delay is normal.
• To activate cruise control, depress the

winding roads or over 6% up-hill
or down-hill roads.
• Pay particular attention to the
driving conditions whenever
using the cruise control system.
