I've specced Adaptive Cruise with the 1.6 THP and that's got S&S, I think Dealers make it up if they don't know the answer to a questionI was told the 1.2 turbo EAT S&S didn't support adaptive cc, something to do with the S&S, I don't know how true that is but that is what I was told.
Sorry should have been more specific, the 1.6 THP only comes with the EAT so can't see any reason why Adaptive Cruise wouldn't work with the 1.2 engine, but as you say - who knows.They didn't imply Adaptive CC is not compatible with S&S but that it was not compatible with 1.2 Turbo EAT S&S - but who knows
So I think that the speed is, for most occasions, uses the engine braking so that the break lights and brakes aren't engaged every time it makes an adjustment.The system detects a vehicle driving in front in the same direction and can automatically adapt the vehicle's speed to that of the vehicle in front. This occurs using engine braking and the braking system (in which case the brake lights are lit) to maintain a constant distance .
Thanks for your comments because I wanted Adaptive CC and was disapointed it wasn't available on the engine I choose, but your comments make me feel not so bothered about it nowAdaptive cruise (especially all speed, stop/start systems) sound a good option to have, but they aren't infallible.
Adaptive cruise isn't available on the 3008 SUV if you go a for a manual gearbox. It was on my wish list but I couldn't have it.I personally like the idea of adaptive cruise control but in my mind would think it's better suited to an auto rather than manual gearbox and seeing as I much prefer driving manual it's something I'm likely to pass on.
