Opel Corsa: Driver assistance systems / Cruise control

The cruise control can store and maintain speeds above 40 km/h. Additionally, at least the third gear must be engaged on some manual transmissions. On automatic transmission, position D or the second or a higher gear in position M must be selected.

Deviations from the stored speeds may occur when driving uphill or downhill.

The system maintains the vehicle speed at the preset speed by the driver, without any action on the accelerator pedal.

The preset speed can be exceeded temporarily by pressing the accelerator pedal firmly.

The status and preset speed is displayed in the Driver Information Centre.

Do not use the cruise control if it is not advisable to maintain a constant speed.

Adopting speed by the speed limit recognition

The intelligent speed adaptation informs the driver when a speed limit is detected by the speed limit recognition. The detected speed limit can be used as new value for the cruise control.

Using the camera at the top of the windscreen, this system detects and reads speed limit and end of speed limit signs.

With active cruise control the recognised speed limit will be displayed in the Driver Information Centre and MEM illuminates if the difference between set speed and speed limit is more than 9 km/h.

Press MEM on the steering wheel to request saving of the suggested speed.

Press MEM on the steering wheel once more to confirm and save the new speed setting.

This speed is the new value for the cruise control.

The function can be deactivated or activated in the vehicle personalisation.

Exceeding the set speed

Vehicle speed can be increased by depressing the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator pedal is released, the previously stored speed is resumed.

Deactivation of the functionality

Press Opel Corsa. Cruise control, cruise control is in pause mode and a message is displayed. The vehicle is driven without cruise control.
