WARNING

Adaptive Cruise Control is not a colli-

sion avoidance system. The driver is

always responsible for applying the

brakes if the system does not detect

another vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control does not react

to people or animals, or small vehicles

such as bicycles and motorcycles. It

also does not react to slow moving,

parked or approaching vehicles, or

stationary objects.

Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control in

demanding driving conditions such as

city driving or other heavy traffic situa-

tions, in slippery conditions, when

there is a great deal of water or slush

on the road, during heavy rain or

snow, in poor visibility, on winding

roads or on highway on- or off-ramps.

The distance to the vehicle ahead (in the

same lane) is monitored by a radar sensor.

Your vehicle's speed is regulated by acceler-

ating and braking. The brakes may emit a

sound when they are being modulated by the

adaptive cruise control system. This is nor-

mal.

WARNING

The brake pedal moves when the adaptive

cruise control system modulates the

brakes. Do not rest your foot under the

brake pedal.

The ACC system is designed to smoothly

regulate speed. However, the driver must

apply the brakes in situations that require

immediate braking. This applies when there

are great differences in speed between vehi-

cles, or if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly.

WARNING

Due to limitations in the radar sensor,

braking may occur unexpectedly or not at

all, see Adaptive Cruise Control – limita-

tions (p. 159).

Adaptive Cruise Control can be put in active

mode at any permitted speed. However, if the

vehicle's speed falls below 18 mph (30 km/h)

or if engine speed (rpm) becomes too low,

ACC disengages (goes into standby mode)

and will no longer modulate the brakes. The

driver will then have to maintain a safe dis-

tance to the vehicle ahead.

WARNING

When Adaptive Cruise Control is in

standby mode or is switched off com-

pletely, the brakes will not be modulated

automatically. The driver must assume full

control over the vehicle.

Warning light—driver braking required
Adaptive Cruise Control can exert brake force

that is equivalent to approximately 40% of

the vehicle's total braking capacity. In situa-

tions requiring more brake force than ACC

can provide and if the driver does not apply

the brakes, an audible signal from the Colli-

sion Warning system will sound and warning

light will illuminate (see Collision warning* –

function (p. 177)) in the windshield to alert

the driver to react.

NOTE

Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light

contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the

driver is not looking straight ahead may

make the visual warning signal in the wind-

shield difficult to see.

WARNING

Adaptive Cruise Control only warns of

vehicles detected by the radar sensor, see

Adaptive Cruise Control – limitations

(p. 159). In some cases there may be no

warning or the warning may be delayed.

The driver should always apply the brakes

when necessary.

Steep inclines and/or heavy loads
ACC is primarily intended for use on fairly

level roads. The system may have difficulty

maintaining the correct distance to a vehicle

ahead on steep inclines, if the vehicle is car-

rying a heavy load or is towing a trailer. In

these situations, the driver should always be

prepared to apply the brakes if necessary.

Adaptive Cruise Control – setting

speed

Setting a speed
Once ACC has been put in standby mode:

Controls and display

Put in active mode and set a speed (each

additional press increases/decreases

speed by 1 mph (approximately 2 km/h))

Press 

 or 

 (4).

> The set speed, for example 60 mph (5),

will be magnified for several seconds and

the frame around the speed will change

colors from white to green to indicate

that this speed has been stored (set).

When this symbol has changed col-

ors from white to green, ACC is in

active mode and the vehicle will

maintain the set speed.

This symbol indicates that

you are approaching a vehi-

cle ahead.
ACC will switch from main-

taining a set speed to main-

taining a set distance from

that vehicle.

When this happens, a speed

range will be indicated on

the speedometer:
The higher speed (the cur-

rently set speed (5)) will be

marked in green.

The lower speed in the range is the speed of

the vehicle ahead.

Changing the set speed

After a speed has been set, it can be

increased or decreased by briefly press-
ing the 

 or 

 buttons. Each time one

of these buttons is pressed, the vehicle's

speed changes by 5 mph or 5 km/h. If the

speed is increased by pressing the accel-

erator pedal, the vehicle's speed when

the button is pressed will be set.

Press and hold one of these buttons to

increase/decrease the speed in 1-mph or

1-km/h increments. Release the button

when you have reached the desired

speed.

NOTE

If one of the Adaptive Cruise Control

buttons is pressed for more than

approximately one minute, ACC will be

deactivated. The engine must then be

switched off and restarted to reset

ACC.

In some situations Adaptive Cruise

Control cannot be put in active mode.

Adaptive Cruise Control – setting time

interval

Setting a time interval

Controls and display

Decrease/increase time interval

The set time interval to vehicles ahead can be
increased by pressing 

 and decreased by

pressing 

. The current time interval is

shown briefly in the display following adjust-

ment.

Different time intervals can

be selected and are shown in
the instrument panel

2

 as 1–5

horizontal bars. The greater

the number of bars, the

longer the time interval. One

bar represents a time interval

of approximately 1 second; 5 bars is approxi-

mately 3 seconds.
To set/change a time interval:

Press the 

/

 buttons (3).

At low speeds, when the distance to the vehi-

cle ahead is short, ACC increases the time

interval slightly. In order to follow the vehicle

ahead as smoothly as possible, ACC allows

the time interval to vary considerably in cer-

tain situations.

WARNING

Only use a time interval that is suitable

in current traffic conditions.

A short time interval gives the driver

limited reaction time if an unexpected

situation occurs in traffic.

WARNING

The vehicle may accelerate quickly after

 has been pressed if its current speed is

considerably lower than the set speed.

Standby mode due to action by the
driver
ACC is temporarily deactivated and put in

standby mode:

if the brakes are applied

if the gear selector is moved to N

if the driver drives faster than the set

speed for more than 1 minute.

In this happens, the driver will have to regu-

late the vehicle's speed.

NOTE

If the accelerator pedal is only depressed

for a short time, such as when passing

another vehicle, ACC is deactivated tem-

porarily and is reactivated when the pedal

is released.

Automatic standby mode
ACC is linked to other systems such as the

stability system. If this system is not function-

ing properly, ACC will switch off automati-

cally.
In the event of automatic deactivation, an

audible signal will sound and the message

Cruise control Cancelled

 is shown in the

instrument panel. The driver must then inter-

vene and adapt the vehicle's speed to the

surrounding traffic and regulate the distance

to the vehicle ahead.
An automatic switch to standby mode may be

caused if:

engine speed (rpm) is too high/low

The driver's door is opened

The driver unbuckles his/her seat belt

the vehicle's speed goes below 18 mph

(30 km/h)

the wheels lose traction

brake temperature is high

the radar sensor is obstructed by, for

example, wet snow or rain.

Resuming the set speed
If ACC is in standby mode, it can be reactiva-
ted by pressing the 

 button on the steering

wheel keypad. The vehicle will return to the

most recently set speed.

WARNING

Adaptive Cruise Control – passing

another vehicle

Passing another vehicle
If your vehicle’s speed is being regulated by

ACC and the driver indicates that he/she

would like to pass the vehicle ahead by using

the left turn signal, ACC can assist by accel-

erating briefly.
This function is active at speeds above

approximately 45 mph (70 km/h).

WARNING

Please be aware that this function will also

cause the vehicle to accelerate briefly in

certain situations other than passing

another vehicle, for example using the left

turn signal to indicate a lane change or a

turn toward a highway exit at speeds

above approximately 45 mph (70 km/h).

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) –

Queue Assist

Queue Assist is an added ACC feature that is

linked to your vehicle's automatic transmis-

sion.

Introduction
Queue Assist is an added ACC feature that is

linked to your vehicle's automatic transmis-

sion.
Queue Assist consists of the following func-

tions:

Enhanced speed interval (including when

the vehicle is at a complete stop or is

moving at speed below 18 mph

(30 km/h))

Automatic standby mode when ACC

changes target vehicles

No automatic braking when at a standstill

The parking brake is applied automati-

cally

Please note that the lowest speed that can be

set is 18 mph (30 km/h), although ACC can

maintain a set speed/distance to a vehicle

ahead down to a standstill. Queue Assist

consists of the following features:

Enhanced speed interval

NOTE

The driver's door must be closed and the

driver's seat belt must be fastened before

ACC can be put in active mode. If the driv-

er's seat belt is taken off or if the driver's

door is opened, ACC will return to standby

mode.

Your vehicle can maintain the set time interval

to the vehicle ahead at any permissible

speed, including a complete stop.
In order to activate ACC at speeds below

18 mph (30 km/h):

The vehicle ahead must be within a rea-

sonable distance (not farther away than

approx. 100 ft/30 meters)

The lowest speed that can be selected is

18 mph (30 km/h), although ACC will also

help maintain the set time interval to the

vehicle ahead at lower speeds, including

a complete stop.

During short stops (less than approximately

3 seconds) in slow-moving traffic, your vehi-

cle will begin moving again automatically as

soon as the vehicle ahead begins to move.
If it takes more than 3 seconds for the vehicle

ahead to begin moving, ACC will be automat-

ically go into standby mode.

||

07 Driver support

07

158

The driver will then have to reactivate ACC in

one of the following ways:

By pressing 

By accelerating up to at least 3 mph

(4 km/h). ACC will then resume following

the vehicle ahead.

Your vehicle will then resume following the

vehicle ahead at the set time interval.

NOTE

ACC can remain active and keep your

vehicle at a standstill for up to 4 minutes.

After 4 minutes have elapsed, the parking

brake will be engaged and ACC will go into

standby mode.
To reactivate ACC, the driver must release

the parking brake (see Parking brake –

general information (p. 232)).

Automatic standby mode when ACC
changes target vehicles

If the vehicle ahead turns suddenly, there may be

a stationary vehicle ahead

The following only applies at speeds below

approximately 18 mph (30 km/h):
If ACC changes target vehicles (the vehicle

that the radar sensor has detected) from a

moving vehicle to a stationary one, the sys-

tem will apply the brakes in your vehicle.

WARNING

At speeds above 18 mph (30 km/h), ACC

will not react to a stationary vehicle and

apply the brakes but will instead acceler-

ate to the previously set speed. The driver

must actively apply the brakes to stop the

vehicle.

ACC disengages and goes into standby

mode if:

Your vehicle's speed goes below 10 mph

(15 km/h) and ACC cannot determine if

the target object is a stationary vehicle or

some other type of object such as e.g., a

speed bump.

Your vehicle's speed goes below 10 mph

(15 km/h) and the vehicle ahead turns so

that ACC no longer has a target vehicle to

follow.

No automatic braking when at a
standstill
In certain situations, ACC will no longer apply

the brakes and go into standby mode while

the vehicle is not moving. This means that the

driver will have to apply the brakes.

This happens if:

The driver presses the brake pedal

The parking brake is activated

The gear selected is moved to PN or R

The driver presses the 

 button to put

ACC in standby mode

The parking brake is applied
automatically
In certain situations, ACC will apply the park-

ing brake in order to continue keeping the

vehicle at a standstill.
This happens if:

The driver opens the door or takes off

his/her seat belt

The stability system is put in Sport mode

(see Stability system – operation (p. 142))

ACC has kept the vehicle at a standstill

for more than 2 minutes

The engine has been switched off

The brakes have overheated

Radar sensor

The radar sensor is designed to help detect

cars or larger vehicles driving in the same

direction as your vehicle, in the same lane.

The radar sensor and its limitations
In addition to being used by the Adaptive

Cruise Control (ACC), the radar sensor is also

used by Distance Alert (see Distance Alert –

introduction (p. 164)) and Collision Warning

with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detec-

tion (see Collision warning – introduction

(p. 175)).

WARNING

If there is visible damage to the front

grille or you suspect that the radar

sensor may be damaged in any way,

contact a trained and qualified Volvo

service technician as soon as possible.

The radar sensor may only function

partially (or not at all) if it is damaged

or is not securely fastened in place.

Accessories or other objects, such as

extra headlights, must not be installed

in front of the grille.

Modification of the radar sensor could

make its use illegal.

The radar sensor's capacity to detect vehi-

cles ahead is impeded:

if the radar sensor is obstructed and can-

not detect other vehicles, for example in

heavy rain, or if snow or other objects are

obscuring the radar sensor.

NOTE

Keep the area in front of the radar sensor

clean.

if the speed of vehicles ahead is signifi-

cantly different from your own speed.

Adaptive Cruise Control – limitations

The ACC cannot cover all driving situations

and traffic, weather and road conditions.

Situations where ACC may not function
optimally

WARNING

The radar sensor has a limited field of

vision. In some situations it may detect

a vehicle later than expected or not

detect other vehicles at all.

If ACC is not functioning properly,

cruise control will also be disabled.

Radar sensor's field of vision (shown in pink)

In certain situations, the radar sensor

cannot detect vehicles at close quarters,

for example a vehicle that suddenly

enters the lane between your vehicle and

the target vehicle.
Small vehicles, such as motorcycles, or

vehicles not driving in the center of the

lane may remain undetected.
In curves, the radar sensor may detect

the wrong vehicle or lose sight of the tar-

get vehicle.

WARNING

Adaptive Cruise Control cannot cover

all driving situations and traffic,

weather and road conditions. The

"Function" section provides informa-

tion about limitations that the driver

must be aware of before using this

feature.

This system is designed to be a sup-

plementary driving aid. It is not, how-

ever, intended to replace the driver's

attention and judgement. The driver is

responsible for maintaining a safe dis-

tance and speed and must intervene if

Adaptive Cruise Control does not

maintain a suitable speed or suitable

distance to the vehicle ahead.

Maintenance of ACC components may

only be performed by a trained and

qualified Volvo technician.

WARNING

Adaptive Cruise Control is not a colli-

sion avoidance system. The driver is

always responsible for applying the

brakes if the system does not detect

another vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control does not react

to people or animals, or small vehicles

such as bicycles and motorcycles. It

also does not react to slow moving,

parked or approaching vehicles, or

stationary objects.

Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control in

demanding driving conditions such as

city driving or other heavy traffic situa-

tions, in slippery conditions, when

there is a great deal of water or slush

on the road, during heavy rain or

snow, in poor visibility, on winding

roads or on highway on- or off-ramps.

Adaptive Cruise Control –

troubleshooting

If the message 

Radar blocked See manual

is displayed, this means that the radar signals

from the sensor have been obstructed and

that a vehicle ahead cannot be detected.
This, in turn, means that the functions of the

ACC, Distance Alert, and Collision Warning

System with Auto-brake and Pedestrian

Detection will not function.
The table lists possible causes for this mes-

sage being displayed, and suitable actions.

Cause

Action

The surface of the radar in the grille is dirty or obstructed in some

way.

Clean the radar surface, or remove the object causing the obstruction.

Heavy rain or snow is interfering with the radar signals.

No action possible. Heavy precipitation may affect the function of the

radar.

Swirling water or snow from the surface of the road may interfere

with the radar signals.

No action possible. A very wet or snow-covered road surface may affect

the function of the radar.

The surface of the radar is clean but the message remains in the

display.

Wait a short time. It may take several minutes for the radar to detect that

it is no longer obstructed.
