mne159Comments Off on New volkswagen passat and adaptive cruise control .Adaptive Cruise Control, or ACC, is just what it sounds like. While regular cruise control simply holds a speed you set, ACC maintains the following distance automatically using your front sensors. This means that if the person in front of you slows down, your Volkswagen will slow down too without the need to cancel cruise control and reset it. The latest generation of adaptive cruise control ACC incorporates predictive cruise control. Up until now, the system in the Passat was a pure Adaptive Cruise Control system. This proven feature will also be offered in the new Passat. From now on, the new, predictive ACC will be available as an additional option.
