uuHonda Sensing®uAdaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow  
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow  
Helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and a set following-interval behind a vehicle  
detected ahead of yours and, if the detected vehicle comes to a stop, can decelerate  
and stop your vehicle, without you having to keep your foot on the brake or the  
accelerator.  
When ACC with Low Speed Follow slows your vehicle by applying the brakes, your  
vehicle’s brake lights will illuminate.  
1Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow  
3WARNING  
Improper use of ACC with Low Speed  
Follow can lead to a crash.  
Use ACC with Low Speed Follow only when  
driving on expressways or freeways and in  
good road and weather conditions.  
When to use  
A front sensor  
camera is  
located behind  
the rearview  
mirror.  
3WARNING  
ACC with Low Speed Follow has limited  
braking capability and may not stop your  
vehicle in time to avoid a collision with a  
vehicle that quickly stops in front of you.  
Always be prepared to apply the brake  
pedal if the conditions require.  
The radar sensor is behind  
the Honda emblem on the  
front grille.  
Important Reminder  
As with any system, there are limits to ACC with Low  
Speed Follow. Use the brake pedal whenever  
necessary, and always keep a safe interval between  
your vehicle and other vehicles.  
Vehicle speed for ACC with Low Speed Follow: A vehicle is detected ahead  
within ACC with Low Speed Follow range – ACC with Low Speed Follow  
operates at speeds up to 90 mph (145 km/h).  
No vehicle is detected within ACC with Low Speed Follow range – ACC with  
Low Speed Follow operates at the speed of 25 mph (40 km/h) or above.  
Shift position for ACC with Low Speed Follow: In (D or (S.

2 ACC with Low Speed Follow Conditions  
and Limitations P. 503  
When not using ACC with Low Speed Follow: Turn  
off adaptive cruise by pressing the  
button.  
Do not use ACC with Low Speed Follow under the  
following conditions:  
On roads with frequent lane-change or continuous  
stop and go traffic, ACC with Low Speed Follow  
cannot keep an appropriate distance between your  
vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you.  
On roads with sharp turns.  
On roads with toll collection facilities or other  
objects between lanes of traffic, or in parking  
areas, or facilities with drive through access.  
On roads with bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.),  
ACC with Low Speed Follow may not detect the  
distance between your vehicle and the vehicle  
ahead of you properly.  
On roads with slippery or icy surfaces. The wheels  
may spin out and your vehicle may lose the control  
on the condition.  
On roads with steep uphill or steep downhill slopes.  
On roads with undulating slopes.

Up or down  
When driving at about 25 mph (40 km/h) or above: Take your foot off the  
pedal and press the RES/+/SET/− switch up or down when you reach the desired  
speed. The moment you release the switch, the set speed is fixed, and ACC with  
Low Speed Follow begins.  
2 Settings* P. 129  
2 Customized Features P. 359  
When you use ACC with Low Speed Follow, Straight Driving Assist (a feature of the  
Electric Power Steering system) is activated.  
By enabling the steering system to automatically compensate for natural steering  
pull, Straight Driving Assist makes it easier for you to keep your vehicle in a straight  
line.  
When driving slower than about 25 mph (40 km/h): If the vehicle is moving  
and the brake pedal is not depressed, pressing the switch fixes the set speed to  
about 25 mph (40 km/h) regardless of current vehicle speed. If the vehicle is  
stationary, you can set the vehicle speed even with the brake pedal depressed.

your set speed comes in or cuts in front of you  
and is detected by the radar and the camera,  
your vehicle starts to slow down.  
Even if the interval between your vehicle and the  
vehicle detected ahead is short, ACC with Low Speed  
Follow may start accelerating your vehicle under the  
following circumstances:  
The vehicle ahead of you is going at almost the  
same speed as, or faster than, your vehicle.  
A vehicle that cuts in front of you is going faster  
than your vehicle, gradually increasing the interval  
between the vehicles.  
A vehicle icon appears on the  
gauge.  
You can also set the system to beep when a vehicle in  
front of you comes in and goes out of the ACC with  
Low Speed Follow detecting range. A vehicle detect

having to keep your foot on the brake or  
accelerator pedal.  
If there previously was a vehicle detected  
ahead that kept your vehicle from traveling at  
the set speed, ACC with Low Speed Follow  
accelerates your vehicle to the set speed, and  
then maintains it.  
A vehicle icon with line contour  
appears on the gauge.  
On steep downhill during ACC with Low  
Speed Follow, it brakes to inhibit excessive  
acceleration for maintaining the set speed.  
However, the vehicle speed may become  
faster than the set speed.  
When you depress the accelerator pedal  
You can temporarily increase the vehicle speed. In this case, there is no audible or  
visual alert even if a vehicle is in the ACC with Low Speed Follow range.  
ACC with Low Speed Follow stays on unless you cancel it. Once you release the  
accelerator pedal, the system resumes an appropriate speed for keeping the  
following-interval while a vehicle ahead is within the ACC with Low Speed Follow  
range.  
When the vehicle ahead of you moves away, such  
as when entering an interchange or rest area, ACC  
with Low Speed Follow may continue to maintain  
the set following-interval for a short time.

Your vehicle also stops, automatically. The  
Stopped message appears on the gauge.  
When the vehicle ahead of you starts again, if  
you press the RES/+/SET/- switch up or down,  
or depress the accelerator pedal, ACC with  
Low Speed Follow will operate again within  
the prior set speed.  
Exiting a vehicle that has been stopped  
while the ACC with Low Speed Follow  
system is operating can result in the vehicle  
moving without operator control.  
A vehicle that moves without operator  
control can cause a crash, resulting in  
serious injury or death.

If no vehicle is ahead of you before you  
resume driving, depress the accelerator pedal  
and ACC with Low Speed Follow will operate  
again within the prior set speed.  
Never exit a vehicle when the vehicle is
