Overtaking Acceleration Assist (Lane Changing Mode - Overtaking another vehicle while Smart Cruise Control is enabled)

When Smart Cruise Control is enabled and your vehicle is approaching another vehicle in your current lane, if you activate the left turn signal to merge in order to overtake the vehicle, Smart Cruise Control will temporarily disable controlling the approaching distance until you overtake the vehicle.

If this occurs, your vehicle will not decelerate in order to maintain the set following distance with the vehicle in front.

  • Your vehicle speed is above 40 mph (60 km/h)
  • The hazard warning flashers are off
  • The feature detects another vehicle in front of your vehicle
  • Deceleration is not needed to maintain distance with the vehicle in front

WARNING

  • When the turn signal indicator is turned on to the left while there is a vehicle ahead, the vehicle may accelerate temporarily. Pay attention to the road conditions at all times.
  • Regardless of your countries driving direction, Overtaking Acceleration Assist will operate when the conditions are satisfied. When using the function in countries with different driving direction, always check the road conditions at all times.

Accelerating temporarily

If you want to speed up temporarily without altering the set speed while Smart Cruise Control is operating, depress the accelerator pedal. While the accelerator pedal is depressed, the set speed, distance level and target distance will blink on the cluster.

However, if the accelerator pedal is depressed insufficiently, the vehicle may decelerate.

WARNING

Be careful when accelerating temporarily, because the speed and distance is not controlled automatically even if there is a vehicle in front of you.

Temporarily canceling Smart Cruise Control

Smart Cruise Control will be temporarily canceled automatically when:

  • Keep Smart Cruise Control off when the function is not in use to avoid inadvertently setting a speed.
  • Do not open the door or leave the vehicle when Smart Cruise Control is operating, even if the vehicle is stopped.
  • Always be aware of the selected speed and vehicle distance.
  • Keep a safe distance according to road conditions and vehicle speed. If the vehicle distance is too close during high-speed driving, a serious collision may result.
  • When maintaining distance with the vehicle ahead, if the front vehicle disappears, Smart Cruise Control may suddenly accelerate to the set speed. Always be aware of unexpected and sudden situations from occurring.
  • Vehicle speed may decrease on an upward slope and increase on a downward slope.

  • Smart Cruise Control may not detect an obstacle in front and lead to a collision. Always look ahead cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring.
  • Vehicles moving in front of you with a frequent lane change may cause a delay in Smart Cruise Control reaction or may cause Smart Cruise Control to react to a vehicle actually in an adjacent lane. Always drive cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring.
  • Always be aware of the surroundings and drive safely, even though a warning message does not appear or an audible warning does not sound.
  • If any other system’s warning message is displayed or warning sound is generated, Smart Cruise Control warning message may not be displayed and warning sound may not be generated.
