Honda Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Slider


What makes Honda cars some of the best family cars on Iowa roadways today? It's intelligent safety technology like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, a feature included in the Honda Sensing® suite. Not only will ACC keep a safe distance between your Honda and the detected vehicles ahead of you during highway cruising, but ACC can also slow and/or stop your Honda if the detected vehicle in front of you slows to a stop. Ride along with Vern Eide Honda Sioux City as we explore how to use Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.


How do I use my Honda Adaptive Cruise Control?

Whether you're taking a road trip across the Hawkeye State or across the United States, ACC is designed to make freeway driving easier. The system allows you to maintain a constant cruising speed, set the following interval between you and detected vehicles ahead of you, and even help stop your Honda if the vehicles in front of you come to a stop.

How do I turn on Adaptive Cruise Control in my Honda?

Follow the steps below to turn on your Adaptive Cruise Control:

  1. Press the MAIN button on your steering wheel.
  2. ACC will appear in the instrument panel, along with LKAS (Lane Keeping Assist).
  3. Your cruise speed can be set while driving below 25 MPH or even while the vehicle is stopped with your foot on the brake pedal.
  4. Press the SET/- button on your steering wheel.
  5. The system will set the cruise speed to 25 MPH, by default.
  6. To set the cruise speed for more than 25 MPH just press the SET/- button again when you've reached your desired speed.

The instrument panel will display your set speed along with a vehicle icon that has up to four bars behind it to indicate the interval or distance setting between you and the detected vehicles ahead.

How do I adjust the Honda Adaptive Cruise Control distance settings?

Honda ACC has four different distance settings to choose from, including Short, Middle, Long, and Extra Long. To adjust your distance setting simply press the interval button (vehicle with four bars) on your steering wheel until the desired interval has been set. The ACC icon in the instrument panel will display your interval setting with the number of bars representing the distance.
