Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF)

*

When the MAIN button is pressed, both ACC with 
LSF and the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) are 
either turned on or off.

ACC with LSF may not work properly under certain 
conditions.

ACC with LSF Conditions and Limitations 

P. 486

When not using ACC with LSF: Turn off adaptive 
cruise by pressing the MAIN button. This also will 
turn off the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

Do not use ACC with LSF under the following 
conditions:

On roads with heavy traffic or while driving in 
continuous stop and go traffic.

On roads with sharp turns.

On roads with steep downhill sections, as the set 
vehicle speed can be exceeded by coasting. In such 
cases, ACC with LSF will not apply the brakes to 
maintain the set speed.

On roads with toll collection facilities or other 
objects between lanes of traffic, or in parking 
areas, or facilities with drive through access.

How to use

Press the MAIN button on 
the steering wheel.

ACC (green) is on in the instrument panel.
ACC with LSF is ready to use.

Driving

When driving at about 25 mph (40 km/h) or above: Take your foot off the 
pedal and press the –/SET button when you reach the desired speed. The moment 
you release the button, the set speed is fixed, and ACC with LSF begins.
When driving slower than about 25 mph (40 km/h): If the vehicle is moving 
and the brake pedal is not depressed, pressing the button fixes the set speed to 25 
mph (40 km/h) regardless of current vehicle speed. If your vehicle is stationary and a 
vehicle is detected ahead, your vehicle speed can be set, even with the brake pedal 
depressed.

When you use ACC with LSF, Straight Driving 
Assist (a feature of the Electric Power Steering 
system) is activated.

automatically compensate for natural steering 
pull, Straight Driving Assist makes it easier for 
you to keep your vehicle in a straight line.

Driving

There is a vehicle ahead

ACC with LSF monitors if a vehicle ahead of you enters the ACC with LSF range. If a 
vehicle is detected doing so, the ACC with LSF system maintains or decelerates your 
vehicle’s set speed in order to keep the vehicle’s set following-interval from the 
vehicle ahead.

To Set or Change Following-interval P. 489

When a vehicle whose speed is slower than 
your set speed is detected in front of you, your 
vehicle starts to slow down.

When in Operation

1

When in Operation

If the vehicle ahead of you slows down abruptly, or if 
another vehicle cuts in front of you, the beeper 
sounds, a message appears on the driver information 
interface.
Depress the brake pedal, and keep an appropriate 
interval from the vehicle ahead.

Even if the interval between your vehicle and the 
vehicle detected ahead is short, ACC with LSF may 
start accelerating your vehicle under the following 
circumstances:

The vehicle ahead of you is going at almost the 
same speed as, or faster than, your vehicle.

A vehicle that cuts in front of you is going faster 
than your vehicle, gradually increasing the interval 
between the vehicles.

You can also set the system to beep when a vehicle in 
front of you comes in and goes out of the ACC with 
LSF detecting range. Change the ACC Forward 
Vehicle Detect Beep
 setting.

Driving

There is no vehicle ahead

Your vehicle maintains the set speed without 
having to keep your foot on the brake or 
accelerator pedal.
If there previously was a vehicle detected 
ahead that kept your vehicle from traveling at 
the set speed, ACC with LSF accelerates your 
vehicle to the set speed, and then maintains it.

When you depress the accelerator pedal

You can temporarily increase the vehicle speed. In this case, there is no audible or 
visual alert even if a vehicle is in the ACC with LSF range.
ACC with LSF stays on unless you cancel it. Once you release the accelerator pedal, 
the system resumes an appropriate speed for keeping the following-interval while a 
vehicle ahead is within the ACC with LSF range.
There are times when the vehicle speed will decrease when the accelerator pedal is 
lightly applied.

Limitations
You may need to use the brake to maintain a safe 
interval when using ACC with LSF. Additionally, ACC 
with LSF may not work properly under certain 
conditions.

WARNING

Exiting a vehicle that has been stopped 
while the ACC with LSF system is operating 
can result in the vehicle moving without 
operator control.

A vehicle that moves without operator 
control can cause a crash, resulting in 
serious injury or death.

Never exit a vehicle when the vehicle is 
stopped by ACC with LSF.

To Adjust the Vehicle Speed

If a vehicle detected ahead is going at a speed slower 
than your increased set speed, ACC with LSF may not 
accelerate your vehicle. This is to maintain the set 
interval between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead.

You can switch the displayed set speed 
measurements on the driver information interface 
between mph and km/h.

Important Reminder
As with any system, there are limits to ACC. Use the 
brake pedal whenever necessary, and always keep a 
safe interval between your vehicle and other vehicles.

3

WARNING

Improper use of ACC can lead to a crash.

Use ACC only when traveling on open 
highways in good weather.

3

WARNING

ACC has limited braking capability.
When your vehicle speed drops below 22 
mph (35 km/h), ACC will automatically 
cancel and no longer will apply your 
vehicle’s brakes.

Always be prepared to apply the brake 
pedal when conditions require.

When to use

Vehicle speed for adaptive cruise control: Desired speed in a range above 
roughly 25 mph (40 km/h) ~

The radar sensor is in 
the lower bumper 
next to the fog light.
Be careful not to have 
the radar sensor cover 
strongly impacted.

The camera is 
located behind 
the rearview 
mirror.
