Audi A3  Driver assistance  Driver assist systems  Cruise control system
The cruise control system allows you to drive at a constant speed of 20 km/h or higher.
A constant speed is maintained by adjusting the engine power or braking the vehicle accordingly.
  • Always direct your full attention to the road, even when you are using the cruise control system. It is always the driver who is responsible for determining the speed and for keeping a safe distance to the other vehicles on the road.
  • For safety reasons, the cruise control system must not be used in city traffic, stop-and-go traffic, on roads with a lot of bends or in difficult or slippery driving conditions (such as ice, fog, loose grit or gravel, heavy rain, etc.) - risk of accident!
  • When you take a turn-off, drive along a motorway exit lane or pass through roadwork sections, please temporarily switch off the cruise control system.
  • Make sure you do not unintentionally rest your foot on the accelerator - this will override the cruise control system which, as a result, will not brake the vehicle.
  • The cruise control system is suitable for driving in speed-restricted zones. As a driver you are always responsible for maintaining the correct speed.
  • On vehicles with a manual gearbox, the set speed cannot be reached if the currently selected gear is too high or too low. Make sure to change up or down a gear in good time.
  • The cruise control system remains active while you change gears (applies to both manual and automatic gearboxes).
  • The brake lights come on when the system brakes the vehicle.
