Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Continued

Driving

When a vehicle whose speed is slower than 
your set speed is detected in front of you, your 
vehicle starts to slow down.

A vehicle icon appears on the 
gauge.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

500

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.

On steep downhill during ACC with Low 
Speed Follow, it brakes to inhibit excessive 
acceleration for maintaining the set speed. 
However the vehicle speed may become faster 
than the set speed.

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 the set speed.
There are times when the vehicle speed will decrease when the accelerator pedal is 
lightly applied.

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. A vehicle detect 
beep on and off can be selected.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Driving

1

When in Operation

ACC with Low Speed Follow may temporarily 
control the interval between your vehicle and the 
vehicle in adjacent lane or surroundings of your 
vehicle depending on the road conditions (e.g. 
curves) or vehicle conditions (e.g. operating the 
steering wheel or the vehicle location in the lane).

When the vehicle ahead of you moves away, such 
as when entering an interchange or rest area, ACC 
with Low Speed Follow may continue to maintain 
the set following-interval for a short time.

A vehicle detected ahead is within ACC with Low Speed Follow range and 
slows to a stop

Your vehicle also stops, automatically. The

When the vehicle ahead of you starts again, 
the vehicle icon on the gauge blinks. If you 
press the

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.

Never exit a vehicle when the vehicle is 
stopped by ACC with Low Speed Follow.

example, you are descending a long slope).

When the system doesn't detect any driving actions from the driver for a certain 
amount of time while the LKAS is also activated.

The ACC with Low Speed Follow automatic cancellation can be also triggered by the
