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.
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.
Follow the steps below to turn on your Adaptive Cruise Control:
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.
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.
While nearly every 2020 or newer Honda model comes standard equipped with Honda Sensing and Adaptive Cruise Control, vehicles such as the Fit, HR-V, and Ridgeline can all be outfitted with ACC with trim level upgrades.
