Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
What’s the Benefit?
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) adjusts the vehicle speed and the following interval to the vehicle detected ahead for enhanced convenience on the highway. And on CVT models, Low-Speed Follow helps make it easier to drive in stop-and-go traffic.13
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.
Low-Speed Follow 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 -/SET, or press the accelerator, and the Civic will resume moving up to the ACC system’s prior set speed
