Peugeot 2008: Driving / Adaptive Cruise Control

Peugeot 2008 2019-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving / Adaptive Cruise Control

Refer to the General recommendations on the use of driving and manoeuvring aids and to Cruise control - particular recommendations.

This system automatically maintains the speed of your vehicle at a value which you set (speed setting), while keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front (target vehicle), and which has been set beforehand by the driver. The system automatically manages the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle.

With the Stop  & Go function, the system manages the braking until the vehicle comes to a complete stop and the restarting of the vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control The brake lamps come on if the vehicle is slowed down by the system.

It can be dangerous to drive if the brake lamps are not in perfect working order.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control

To do so, it has a camera located at the top of the windscreen and, depending on version, a radar located in the front bumper.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control Primarily designed for driving on main roads and motorways, this system only works with moving vehicles driving in the same direction as your vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control If the driver operates a direction indicator to overtake a slower vehicle, the cruise control allows the vehicle to temporarily approach the vehicle in front to assist the overtaking manoeuvre, without ever exceeding the speed setting.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control Some vehicles present on the road may not be properly seen or may be poorly interpreted by the camera and/or radar (e.g. a lorry), which may lead to a poor assessment of the distances and lead to the vehicle inappropriately accelerating or braking.

Steering mounted control

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control

  1. ON (CRUISE position) / OFF
  2. Activation of cruise control at the current speed / decrease speed setting
  3. Activation of cruise control at the current speed / increase speed setting
  4. Pause / resume cruise control with the speed setting previously saved

    Confirmation of the restarting of the vehicle after automatic stop (versions with Stop & Go function)

  5. Use the speed suggested by the Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation (MEM display)
  6. Display and adjustment of the distance setting to the vehicle in front

Use

Activating the system (pause)

  • With the engine running, turn the thumbwheel 1 downwards to the CRUISE position. Cruise control is ready to operate (grey display).

Switching on cruise control and setting the speed

With a manual gearbox, your speed must be between 19 and 112  mph (30 and 180  km/h).

With an EAT8 automatic gearbox or a drive selector, your speed must be between 0 and 112  mph (0  and 180  km/h).

  • Press button 2 or 3: the current speed becomes the speed setting (minimum 19 mph (30  km/h)) and cruise control is immediately activated (green display).
  • Press 3 to increase or 2 to decrease the speed setting (steps of 5  mph (km/h) if held pressed).

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control Pressing and holding button 2 or 3  results in a rapid change in the speed of the vehicle.

Pausing / resumption of cruise control

  • Press 4 or depress the brake pedal. To pause cruise control, it is also possible to:
    • shift from mode D to N;
    • depress the clutch pedal for more than 10 seconds;
    • press the electric parking brake control.
  • Press 4 to restart cruise control. Cruise control may have been paused automatically:
    • when the speed of the vehicle goes below 19 mph (30  km/h) with a manual gearbox.
    • when the speed of the engine goes below 1100 rpm with a manual gearbox.
    • by triggering of the ESC system.

With an EAT8 gearbox or a drive selector, following braking that has brought the vehicle to a complete stop, if the traffic conditions do not allow the vehicle to begin moving again within 3  seconds of stopping, press button 4 or the accelerator pedal to move off.

If the driver takes no action after the vehicle has been stopped, the electric parking brake is applied automatically after about 5 minutes.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control Cruise control remains active after changing gear, regardless of the gearbox type.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control When the driver attempts to reactivate cruise control, after the function has been paused, the message "Activation not possible, unsuitable conditions" is briefly displayed if reactivation is not possible (safety conditions not met).

Changing the programmed speed setting with the Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation function

  • Press 5 to accept the speed suggested by the function on the instrument panel, then press again to confirm.

Peugeot 2008. Adaptive Cruise Control To prevent sudden acceleration or deceleration of the vehicle, select a speed setting relatively close to the vehicle's current speed.

Changing the inter-vehicle distance

  • Press 6 to display the distance setting thresholds ("Distant", "Normal" or "Close"), then press again to select a threshold.

After a few seconds, the option is accepted and will be memorised when the ignition is switched off.

Temporarily exceeding the speed setting

  • Fully depress the accelerator pedal. Distance monitoring and cruise control are deactivated while acceleration is maintained. "Cruise control suspended" is displayed.

Deactivating the system

  • Turn the thumbwheel 1 upwards to the OFF position.
