When the 

MAIN

 button is pressed, both ACC with 

Low Speed Follow and the Lane Keeping Assist 
System (LKAS) are either turned on or off.

ACC with Low Speed Follow may not work properly 
under certain conditions.

ACC with Low Speed Follow Conditions 
and Limitations

 P. 435

When not using ACC with Low Speed Follow: Turn 
off adaptive cruise by pressing the 

MAIN

 button. This 

also will turn off the Lane Keeping Assist System 
(LKAS).

Do not use ACC with Low Speed Follow under the 
following conditions:

On roads with heavy traffic or while driving in 
continuous stop and go traffic.

On roads with sharp turns.

On roads with steep downhill sections, as the set 
vehicle speed can be exceeded by coasting. In such 
cases, ACC with Low Speed Follow will not apply 
the brakes to maintain the set speed.

On roads with toll collection facilities or other 
objects between lanes of traffic, or in parking 
areas, or facilities with drive through access.

How to use

Press the 

MAIN

 button on 

the steering wheel.

ACC (green) is on in the instrument panel.

ACC with Low Speed Follow is ready to use.

Driving

When driving at about 25 mph (40 km/h) or above: 

Take your foot off the 

pedal and press the 

SET

/

 button when you reach the desired speed. The moment 

you release the button, the set speed is fixed, and ACC with Low Speed Follow 
begins.

When driving slower than about 25 mph (40 km/h): 

If the vehicle is moving 

and the brake pedal is not depressed, pressing the button fixes the set speed to 
about 25 mph (40 km/h) regardless of current vehicle speed. If your vehicle is 
stationary, you can set the vehicle speed even with the brake pedal depressed.

There is a vehicle ahead

ACC with Low Speed Follow monitors if a vehicle ahead of you enters the ACC with 
Low Speed Follow range. If a vehicle is detected doing so, the ACC with Low Speed 
Follow system maintains or decelerates your vehicle’s set speed in order to keep the 
vehicle’s set following-interval from the vehicle ahead.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Driving

There is no vehicle ahead

Your vehicle maintains the set speed without 
having to keep your foot on the brake or 
accelerator pedal.
If there previously was a vehicle detected 
ahead that kept your vehicle from traveling at 
the set speed, ACC with Low Speed Follow 
accelerates your vehicle to the set speed, and 
then maintains it.

When you depress the accelerator pedal

You can temporarily increase the vehicle speed. In this case, there is no audible or 
visual alert even if a vehicle is in the ACC with Low Speed Follow range.
ACC with Low Speed Follow stays on unless you cancel it. Once you release the 
accelerator pedal, the system resumes an appropriate speed for keeping the 
following interval while a vehicle ahead is within the ACC with Low Speed Follow 
range.

1

When in Operation

Even if the interval between your vehicle and the 
vehicle detected ahead is short, ACC with Low Speed 
Follow may start accelerating your vehicle under the 
following circumstances:

The vehicle ahead of you is going at almost the 
same speed as, or faster than, your vehicle.

A vehicle that cuts in front of you is going faster 
than your vehicle, gradually increasing the interval 
between the vehicles.

You can also set the system to beep when a vehicle in 
front of you comes in and goes out of the ACC with 
Low Speed Follow detecting range. Change the 

ACC

WARNING

Exiting a vehicle that has been stopped 
while the ACC with Low Speed Follow 
system is operating can result in the vehicle 
moving without operator control.

A vehicle that moves without operator 
control can cause a crash, resulting in 
serious injury or death.
