Cruise control has always been a popular and helpful feature because it allows you to drive more efficiently and safely. Cruise control keeps you at a steady speed and distance from cars in front of you. As great as this feature is, the Toyota Corolla has gone one step further with its Adaptive Cruise Control technology. This unique feature doesn’t eliminate your conventional cruise control but supplements it with an automatic distance control feature – a feature very helpful on expressways and freeways. Stop in at Dolan Toyota and learn everything you need to know about this innovative technology.

To turn on the Adaptive Cruise Control system, you press the On/Off button, which is located at the end of the arm. You can locate Adaptive Cruise Control on the lower right part of the steering wheel; you’ll be able to see a radar-ready indicator on the Corolla’s display screen.

Speed up or slow down to your desired speed by activating the stalk. When you get to the threshold speed, you press the stalk down to hold it and then let go.

To cancel Adaptive Cruise Control, you can either turn it off using the On/Off button or touch the brakes and pull the arm towards you. You can also adjust the distance between your vehicle and others in front of you by using the radar-range button, which is located on the bottom of the steering wheel. Just push the button continuously to view all the available ranges. Pushing the cruise control stalk away from you and maintaining pressure until the alert disappears will shut off the features and active the conventional cruise control.

The purpose of the Toyota Corolla Adaptive Cruise Control is to help you maintain a certain distance between you and vehicles ahead of you. However, it also makes automatic adjustments when needed. With conventional cruise control, you’d have to keep adjusting each time the driver in front changes his speed. If you have more questions, feel free to visit our showroom in Reno, NV to learn more.
