Traffic Jam Assist

Traffic Jam Assist uses proven functions such as ACC adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning to allow easy slow driving in traffic jams. Your car will follow the vehicle ahead and automatically operate the accelerator and brakes within the limits of the system so the vehicle is kept in lane.

Traffic Jam Assist - V1

The original Traffic Jam Assist features uses proven functions such as ACC adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning to allow easy driving in traffic jams. Your car will follow the vehicle ahead and automatically operate the accelerator and brakes within the limits of the system, so the vehicle is kept within the correct lane. This system will allow the vehicle to be stationary for three seconds before needing any human intervention.

Traffic Jam Assist - V1.5

In addition to V1 (above), this system allows the vehicle to be stationary for 13 seconds before needing any human intervention, and can also recognise different colour road markings. This means that the system can also operate when driving through road works.
