Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (Honda Sensing® models)

What’s the Benefit?

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)12 controls speed and the following interval to the vehicle detected ahead. And the low-speed follow feature helps make it easier to drive in stop-and-go traffic.

The Feature:

As with a conventional cruise-control system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows the driver to set a desired speed. But ACC goes a step further, allowing the driver to set a desired speed and the following interval behind a vehicle detected ahead.

  • While driving, engagement of Adaptive Cruise Control prompts the driver to select a short, medium or long interval behind the vehicle detected ahead.
  • ACC then modulates the throttle and applies moderate braking, if necessary, to hold the selected following interval.
  • The low-speed follow feature adds even greater functionality.
  • When the preceding detected vehicle slows to a stop, ACC can stop the Civic automatically.
  • To resume operation, the driver just needs to push the cruise-control toggle switch toward RES/+ or press the accelerator, and the Civic will resume moving up to the ACC system’s prior set speed.
