This driving assistance function allows you to drive at the speed of your choice without the need to action the accelerator. It is active over speeds of around 40 km/h (25 mph).
Remark: For the function to be active, the gearbox must be in at least:
4th gear for manual gearboxes.
2nd gear for automatic gearboxes.
The cruise control controls are located on the left-hand side of the steering wheel and cruise control information is displayed in zone A of the instrument panel.
To select the function
Press button 4 to select cruise control mode “CRUISE”.
The selection is confirmed by the display of the function in zone A of the instrument panel.
When the function is selected, no cruising speed has yet been memorised.
Once the desired speed has been reached using the accelerator, press button 1 or button 2. The cruising speed is then memorised and cruise control is activated.
The cruising speed is displayed in zone A of the instrument panel, and “ON” is displayed.
You can then release the accelerator pedal. The vehicle will automatically keep to the speed chosen.
Note: The vehicle speed may vary slightly from that memorised.
If during cruise control the system cannot keep to the cruise speed (e.g. on a steep descent), then the speed flashes. If necessary, brake to curb your speed.
Adjustment of the memorised speed while cruise control is in operation
You can adjust the memorised speed, displayed in zone A, by pressing:
Button 1 to increase the speed.
Button 2 to reduce the speed.
Remark: Successive presses will modify the cruise speed in steps of 1 mph and a continuous press in steps of 5 mph.
Temporary override of the cruise speed
While cruise control is in operation, it is always possible to go above the cruise speed simply by pressing the accelerator pedal (for example to overtake another vehicle).
The speed displayed in zone A flashes.
You only have to release the accelerator pedal to return to the cruising speed.
Suspension or resumption of cruise control with a memorised speed
Either by pressing the brake pedal or the clutch pedal.
Or by pressing button 3.
Or by the ESP or ASR systems being active.
Note: for vehicles with a manual gearbox, cruise control is deactivated if the gear lever is in neutral.
“PAUSE” will be displayed in zone A of the instrument panel.
These actions do not cancel the cruising speed which remains displayed on the instrument panel.
Reactivation of cruise control
By recalling the memorised speed:
After deactivation, press button 3. Your vehicle automatically returns to the memorised cruising speed. The memorised speed and “ON” are displayed in zone A.
If the memorised cruising speed is higher than the current speed, the vehicle will accelerate strongly to reach the current speed.
By selecting the current speed:
Press button 1 or 2 once the desired speed has been reached.
The new speed and “ON” will appear in zone A.
To cancel the function
Press on button 5.
Select the cruise control function.
Or stop the engine.
The speed that was chosen is no longer memorised.
If there is a malfunction, a message is displayed accompanied by a sound signal and lighting of the SERVI CE warning lamp.
Contact a CITROËN dealer.
Cruise control must only be used where the traffic conditions permit driving
at a constant speed.
Do not use it on congested roads or when the weather or the road conditions are poor.
The driver still has to remain attentive and in complete control of his vehicle.
You are recommended to keep your feet within range of the pedals.
