The cruise control function helps you to maintain your driving speed at a speed that you choose, called the cruising speed.

This cruising speed may be set at any speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).


1 Main “On/Off” switch.

2 Limit speed activation, storage and increase switch (+).

3 Decrease cruising speed (-).

4 Switch the function to standby (with cruising speed saved) (O).

5 Activation with recall of stored governed cruising speed (R).

The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

This function is an additional driving aid. The function does not take the place of the driver. Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect speed limits and to be vigilant (the driver must always be ready to brake). Cruise control must not be used in heavy traffic, on winding or slippery roads (black ice, aquaplaning, gravel) and during bad weather (fog, rain, side winds etc.).

There is a risk of accidents.

Switching on

Press switch 1 side .

The warning light  6 comes on, lit green, and the message “Cruise ctrl” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by dashes to indicate that the cruise control function is activated and waiting to store a cruising speed.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above 18 mph (30 km/h approximately)) press switch 2 or (+): the function is activated and the current speed is saved.

The cruising speed replaces the dashes and the cruise control is confirmed by the appearance of the warning light Ï on a green background.


Once a cruising speed is stored and the cruise control function is active, you may lift your foot off the accelerator pedal.

Please note that you must keep your feet close to the pedals in order to be ready to react in an emergency.

Adjusting the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be changed by pressing the following repeatedly:

- switch 2 (+) to increase the speed,

- switch 3 (-) to decrease the speed.

The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded at any time by depressing the accelerator pedal. While it is being exceeded, the cruising speed flashes on the instrument panel.

Then, release the accelerator: after a few seconds, the vehicle will automatically return to its set cruising speed.

Cruising speed cannot be maintained

When driving down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the cruising speed: the stored speed will flash on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.

Putting the function on standby

The function is set to standby if you:

- use the switch 4 (O);

- the brake pedal;

- move to neutral position;

- ECO mode switch.

In all four cases, the cruising speed remains stored and the message “Memorised” appears on the instrument panel.

Standby is confirmed when the warning light Ï on the green background goes out and the warning light comes on.

The cruise control switches to standby each time the ECO mode is activated or deactivated. Please refer to the information on “Ecodriving” in Section 2.

Returning to the cruising speed

If a speed is stored, it can be recalled, once you are sure that the road conditions are suitable (traffic, road surface, weather conditions, etc.). Press switch 5 (R) if the vehicle speed is above 20 mph (30 km/h).

When the stored speed is recalled, activation of the cruise control is confirmed by the illumination of the warning light Ï on a green background.

NB: if the speed previously stored is much higher than the current speed, the vehicle will accelerate more rapidly to reach this threshold.

Switching off the function

The cruise control function is deactivated if you press switch 1: in this case a speed is no longer stored. The warning light ( or Ï) on the instrument panel going out confirms that the function is stopped.

When the cruise control function is put on standby, pressing switch 2 (+) reactivates the cruise control function without taking into account the stored speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.

Putting the cruise control on standby or switching it off does not cause a rapid reduction in speed: you must brake by depressing the brake pedal.
