Important safety notes

WARNING
If you rest your foot on the brake pedal while driving, the braking system can overheat. This increases the stopping distance and can even cause the braking system to fail. There is a risk of an accident.

Never use the brake pedal as a footrest. Never depress the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal at the same time.

Depressing the brake pedal constantly results in excessive and premature wear to the brake pads.

If you fail to adapt your driving style, SPEEDTRONIC can neither reduce the risk of accident nor override the laws of physics.

SPEEDTRONIC cannot take account of road, weather and traffic conditions.

SPEEDTRONIC is only an aid. You are responsible for the distance to the vehicle in front, for vehicle speed, for braking in good time and for staying in lane. Only engage SPEEDTRONIC when the current road, weather and traffic conditions permit it to be done safely. Drive carefully and maintain a suitable distance to the vehicle in front.

General notes

you do not exceed the set speed. On long and steep downhill gradients, especially if the vehicle is laden or towing a trailer, you must select shift range 1, 2 or 3 in good time. By doing so, you will make use of the braking effect of the engine, which relieves the load on the brake system and prevents the brakes from overheating and wearing too quickly. If you need additional braking, depress the brake pedal repeatedly rather than continuously.

The speed indicated in the speedometer may differ slightly from the limit speed stored.

Cruise control lever

1 To store the current speed or a higher


1 To store the current speed or a higher speed
2 LIM indicator lamp
3 To call up the last speed stored 4 To store the current speed or a lower speed
5 To switch between cruise control and variable SPEEDTRONIC
6 To deactivate variable SPEEDTRONIC

You can operate cruise control and variable SPEEDTRONIC with the cruise control lever.

The LIM indicator lamp on the cruise control lever indicates which system you have selected:
Х LIM indicator lamp off: cruise control is selected.

Х LIM indicator lamp on: variable SPEEDTRONIC is selected.

You can use the cruise control lever to limit the speed to any speed above 30 km/h while the engine is running.

Selecting variable SPEEDTRONIC

1 To activate or increase speed


1 To activate or increase speed 2 LIM indicator lamp
3 To activate at the current speed/last stored speed
4 To activate or reduce speed 5 To switch between cruise control and variable SPEEDTRONIC
6 To deactivate cruise control

Check whether LIM indicator lamp 2 is on.

If it is on, variable SPEEDTRONIC is already selected.

If it is not, press the cruise control lever in the direction of arrow 5.

LIM indicator lamp 2 in the cruise control lever lights up. Variable SPEEDTRONIC is selected.

Storing the current speed

1 To activate or increase speed


1 To activate or increase speed 2 LIM indicator lamp
3 To activate at the current speed/last stored speed
4 To activate or reduce speed 5 To switch between cruise control and variable SPEEDTRONIC
6 To deactivate cruise control

You can use the cruise control lever to limit the speed to any speed above 18 km/h while the engine is running.

Briefly press the cruise control lever up 1 or down 4.

The current speed is stored and shown in the multifunction display.

On downhill gradients, the speed can be exceeded despite variable SPEEDTRONIC.

If this is the case, you will hear a warning tone and the Limit Exceeded message appears in the multifunction display. Apply the brakes yourself if required.

Calling up the last speed stored

1 To activate or increase speed


1 To activate or increase speed 2 LIM indicator lamp
3 To activate at the current speed/last stored speed
4 To activate or reduce speed 5 To switch between cruise control and variable SPEEDTRONIC
6 To deactivate cruise control

Briefly pull the cruise control lever towards you 3.

If you call up the stored speed and your current speed is higher, you will hear a warning tone. The Limit Exceeded message appears in the multifunction display.

If no speed is stored, variable SPEEDTRONIC stores the current speed and maintains it.

Deactivating variable SPEEDTRONIC

There are several ways to deactivate variable SPEEDTRONIC:
Briefly press the cruise control lever forwards 6.

or
Briefly press the cruise control lever in the direction of arrow 5.

LIM indicator lamp 2 in the cruise control lever goes out. Variable SPEEDTRONIC is deactivated.

Cruise control is selected.

It is not possible to deactivate variable SPEEDTRONIC by braking.

Variable SPEEDTRONIC is deactivated automatically when you depress the accelerator pedal beyond the pressure point (kickdown), but only if your current speed does not differ by more than 12 mph from the stored speed.
