Audi Q7: Adjusting adaptive cruise control

Applies to: vehicles with adaptive cruise control

You can adjust the system individually. The settings depend on the vehicle equipment.

  • Applies to: MMI: Select on the home screen: VEHICLE > Driver assistance > > Audi adaptive cruise control.

Possible settings:

Lane guidance - If lane guidance is also active when adaptive cruise assist control is active, you can switch it on or off.

Driving program - Depending on the driving program and the distance that are set, the vehicle handling will be adjusted from Sport to Moderate and the lane guidance haptic feedback will be adjusted.

Store last distance - The last distance that was set will be stored after the ignition is switched off. If the distance is not stored, distance (time distance of approximately 1.8 seconds) is automatically preset every time the ignition is switched on.

Predictive control > Set speed limit - adaptation to speed limits can be switched On or Off. Regulation With tolerance can also be selected, if desired.

In this scenario, you may fall below or exceed the set speed in favor of increased efficiency.

Predictive control > Adjustment to curves along route - Adjustment based on the road ahead can be adjusted. The setting influences vehicle handling with predictive control, for example the speed for driving through curves.


Applies to: vehicles with Audi adaptive cruise control

If or is displayed when there is a malfunction, the adaptive cruise control or traffic jam assist functions may be unavailable or may be limited.

A message that indicates the cause and possible solution may appear with some displays. The weather conditions may be too poor or a sensor may be covered. Clean the area in front of the sensors and try to turn on the systems again Later.

If the malfunction remains, drive to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have the malfunction corrected.

The following messages may appear depending on the vehicle equipment:

Narrow area

Depending on vehicle equipment, this message appears in the Driver assistance display if the adaptive cruise assist is adjusting the speed in a narrow area, for example a construction zone.

Adaptive cruise assist: Please take over!

Adaptive cruise assist was ended, for example because the vehicle rolled backwards when starting on a slight incline even though the system was active. You must take over further control of the vehicle.

Adaptive cruise assist: limited availability.

See owner's manual

This message appears when the sensor view is limited, for example, when weather conditions are too poor or a sensor is covered. You can switch on the adaptive cruise assist, but certain functions such as assistance in narrow areas will not be available. Under certain circumstances, some objects may be detected late or may not be detected at all. Be especially careful. Cleaning the area in front of the sensors may correct the malfunction.
