Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
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 on CVT models helps make it easier to drive in stop-and-go traffic.
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 on CVT models only 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.
