Volvo XC90: Adaptive Cruise Control limitations - DRIVER SUPPORTVolvo XC90: Adaptive Cruise Control limitations

(Option/accessory.)

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC1) may have limited functionality in certain situations.

Steep roads and/or heavy loads

Adaptive Cruise Control is primarily intended to be driven on flat roads. The function may not be able to maintain the correct time interval to the vehicle ahead when driving down steep hills. The driver should be extra attentive and prepared to apply the brakes.

Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control if the vehicle is carrying a heavy load or towing a trailer.

Drive mode unavailable

The Off Road drive mode cannot be selected if Adaptive Cruise Control is activated.

WARNING

  • This is not a collision avoidance system. The driver is always responsible and must intervene if the system fails to detect a vehicle ahead.
  • The function does not brake for people or animals and does not brake for small vehicles, such as bikes and motorcycles. Similarly, it does not brake for low trailers, oncoming, slow-moving or stationary vehicles and objects.
  • Do not use the function in demanding situations, such as in city traffic, at intersections, on slippery surfaces, with a lot of water or slush on the road, in heavy rain/snow, in poor visibility, on winding roads, or on on/off ramps.

NOTE

The function uses the vehicle's camera and radar sensor, which has certain general limitations.
