Renault Clio: Cruise control

Renault Clio Owners Manual

Renault Clio. Cruise control


The cruise control function helps you to maintain your driving speed at a speed that you choose, called the cruising speed.

This cruising speed may be set at any speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).

The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

This function is an additional driving aid. However, the function does not take the place of the driver.

Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect speed limits and to be vigilant (the driver must always be ready to brake).

Cruise control must not be used in heavy traffic, on undulating or slippery roads (black ice, aquaplaning, gravel) and during bad weather (fog, rain, side winds etc.).

There is a risk of accidents.

Switching on

Renault Clio. Switching on


Press switch 1 side .


Indicator light 6 comes on, lit green, and the message “CRUISE CONTROL” appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by dashes to indicate that the cruise control function is activated and waiting to store a cruising speed.

Activating cruise control

Renault Clio. Activating cruise control


At a steady speed (above 18 mph (30 km/h approximately)) press switch 2 or (+): the function is activated and the current speed is saved.

The cruising speed replaces the dashes and the cruise control is confirmed by the appearance of warning light 6 lit green, as well as warning light 7.

Driving

Renault Clio. Driving


Once a cruising speed is stored and the cruise control function is active, you may lift your foot off the accelerator pedal.

Important: you are nevertheless advised to keep your feet close to the pedals in order to react if necessary.

Adjusting the cruising speed

Renault Clio. Adjusting the cruising speed


The cruising speed may be changed by pressing the following repeatedly:

  • switch 2 (+) to increase the speed,
  • switch 3 (-) to decrease the speed.
The cruise control function is in no way linked to the braking system.

Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded at any time by depressing the accelerator pedal. While it is being exceeded, the cruising speed flashes on the instrument panel.

Then, release the accelerator: after a few seconds, the vehicle will automatically return to its set cruising speed.

Cruising speed cannot be maintained

When driving down a steep gradient, the system is unable to maintain the cruising speed: the stored speed will flash on the instrument panel information display to inform you of this situation.

Putting the function on standby


The function is set to standby if you:

  • use the switch 5 (O);
  • the brake pedal;
  • depress the clutch pedal or shift into neutral if the vehicle has an automatic gearbox.

In all three cases, the cruising speed remains stored and the message “MEMORISED” appears on the instrument panel.

Standby is confirmed when indicator light goes out.


Returning to the cruising speed

If a speed is stored, it can be recalled, once you are sure that the road conditions are suitable (traffic, road surface, weather conditions, etc.). Press switch 4 (R) if the vehicle speed is above 20 mph (30 km/h).

When the stored speed is recalled, activation of the cruise control is confirmed by the illumination of the warning
light.

NB: if the speed previously stored is much higher than the current speed, the vehicle will accelerate more rapidly to reach this threshold.

When the cruise control function is put on standby, pressing switch 2 (+) reactivates the cruise control function without taking into account the stored speed: it is the speed at which the vehicle is moving that is taken into account.

Switching off the function


The cruise control function is deactivated if you press switch 1: in this case a speed is no longer stored. The two instrument panel warning lights and
go out to confirm that the function
is deactivated.

Putting the cruise control on standby or switching it off does not cause a rapid reduction in speed: you must brake by depressing the brake pedal.
