Audi A1 Controls Driving Cruise control system
Applies to Audi A1s: with cruise control system
The cruise control system allows you to drive at a constant speed of 30 km/h or higher.
The control lever is on the steering column Fig. 1.
Pull the lever to position -1- Fig. 2 to switch on the system.
Drive at the speed you wish to set the system to.
Press the button marked -A- to store the speed.
The indicator lamp lights up in the instrument cluster when the cruise control system is active.
- Always direct your full attention to the road, even when you are using the cruise control system. It is always the driver who is responsible for determining the speed and for keeping a safe distance to the other Audi A1s on the road.
- For safety reasons, the cruise control system must not be used in city traffic, stop-and-go traffic, roads with a lot of bends or in difficult driving conditions (such as ice, fog, loose grit or gravel, heavy rain, aquaplaning) - this could cause an accident!
- When you take a turn-off, drive along a motorway exit lane or pass through roadwork sections, please temporarily switch off the cruise control system.
- Please make sure you do not unintentionally rest your foot on the accelerator - this will override the cruise control system which, as a result, will not brake the Audi A1.
- Audi A1s with manual gearbox: The set speed cannot be reached if the currently selected gear is too high or too low or if the engine would overrev or fail to run smoothly at the target speed. Make sure to change up or down a gear in good time.
- The cruise control cannot maintain a constant speed when travelling down steep hills. The Audi A1 tends to accelerate under its own weight. Change down to a lower gear in good time or use the foot brake to slow the Audi A1.
