As our world of technology changes in this day of iPhones and digital devises, the world of automotive technology is changing as well. Sometimes there is so much to grasp when buying a new vehicle, it can be a bit scary. Remember when the internet was new and scary? Vehicle technology feels a lot like that, only it’s inside a moving car. Fortunately, the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan offers Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) as an optional feature for drivers looking to add more convenience and intelligent design to their daily commute. We’ll tell you what it does, and how to use adaptive cruise control on the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan.
Steering Wheel Controls Adaptive Cruise Control on 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan
ACC works with radar technology in your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan to monitor the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you on the highway. Using the ACC feature, you can set your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan to maintain a certain amount of distance between your car and the car in front of you. The ACC will kick in whenever the vehicle ahead of your slows down, as your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan will match their speed and slow down.
Your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan’s multi-function steering wheel allows you to set, end, and resume your cruise control with the simple push of a button. You may also override your cruise control using the brakes or the accelerator. In order to return to the speed and distance monitoring that you used before interrupting your cruise control, you can simply hit the “resume” button on your steering wheel.
