Adaptive Cruise Control - Maserati maintaining the security distance in a highway

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) increases your driving comfort, combining the ease of a regular cruise control with enhanced safety, especially when driving on highways and freeways in limited or moderate traffic jams.

Thanks to a radar sensor, located on the front grille behind the trident, and a camera behind the internal rear-view mirror, ACC constantly monitors the presence of a car in front. When the radar system detects a vehicle ahead, ACC system automatically kicks in and adjusts its speed and distance. You will maintain the desired speed that you previously set without needing to constantly restore the Cruise Control every time traffic conditions change.

The Stop & Go function

ACC is extremely helpful and particularly convenient in “stop and start” traffic conditions. The Stop & Go function will apply the brakes and bring you to a complete stop if the vehicle ahead stops in front of you, and then automatically resume driving the car unprompted if the stop is less than two/three seconds.

A few precautions

Offset driving: The ACC system may not detect a vehicle in the same lane that is offset from your direct line of travel. The offset vehicle may move in and out of the line of travel, which can cause your vehicle to brake or accelerate unexpectedly. Make sure you’re always focused on the road and traffic conditions.

Turns and bends: When you’re driving through a corner, the ACC system may engage the braking system to decrease your vehicle’s speed and acceleration for stability reasons even if it doesn’t detect any target vehicle ahead. Once you’re out of the corner, the system will resume your desired speed automatically. This type of deceleration is a normal functionality of ACC.

Driving on hills: When you’re driving on steep hills, be aware that the ACC system may not always detect a vehicle in your lane when that vehicle reaches the crest and goes downhill on the other side. Depending on the speed, traffic conditions, and the steepness of the hills, ACC performance may be limited.

 

Keep in mind

  • If the sensor detects no vehicle ahead, the ACC system will maintain the set steady speed.
  • You must always leave the Adaptive Cruise Control system off when you’re not using it.
  • You must always observe speed limits and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
  • You must always be aware of surrounding traffic and road conditions, especially in bad weather.
  • You must always be ready to take control of the vehicle at all times.
  • ACC is intended to be used only by licensed and alert users and under the conditions specified in a vehicle’s Owner’s Manual.
  • Read and understand a vehicle’s Owner’s Manual thoroughly before using the ACC system.
  • It is your responsibility to stay alert, drive safely, and be in control of the vehicle at all times.
  • To avoid serious injury or death, do not rely on the ACC system to prevent accidents or collisions as it is not designed to prevent loss of control or all accidents or collisions.
  • Failure to follow these instructions and warnings can result in serious injury or death.
