Audi Q3: Adaptive cruise assist

General information

Applies to: vehicles with adaptive cruise assist

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the adaptive cruise assist may consist of the following functions: Within the limits of the system, the adaptive speed assist assists the driver in controlling the speed and the set distance to the vehicle driving ahead. If the system detects a vehicle driving ahead, the adaptive speed assist can brake and accelerate your vehicle within the limits of the system. On open roads with no traffic, it functions like a cruise control system. The stored speed is maintained. When approaching a vehicle driving ahead, the adaptive speed assist automatically brakes to match that vehicle's speed and then maintains the set distance as much as possible. Once the system does not detect a vehicle driving ahead, adaptive speed assist will accelerate up to the set speed.

The additional lane guidance assists the driver with corrective steering in order to stay in the lane. You can adjust if the adaptive cruise assist will provide support with lane guidance.

In stop-and-go traffic and in traffic jams, the vehicle may brake to a full stop and then may also start driving again automatically under certain conditions.

Applies to: vehicles with predictive control: Predictive control can adjust the speed based on traffic and road conditions.


Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.


The system complies with United States FCC regulations and ISED regulations.
