Limits of the sensor system

If you use the ACC in situations outside system limitations, accidents and serious injuries may result and legal regulations may be violated.

  • Be aware of the limitations of the sensor system (→ Sensor system) and cancel the regulation in the situations described.

ACC responds in a limited manner to stationary Volkswagen ID.3 vehicles up to approx. 60 km/h (approx. 37 mph), provided that a stationary vehicle is detected as such and your own vehicle can be comfortably braked behind the stationary vehicle within the system limits of ACC. ACC does not perform emergency braking → fig. 1 .

The reaction to stationary vehicles depends on the vehicle equipment and is not available in all countries.
