Failure to follow the warnings and instruc-
tions for proper use of the ICC system
could result in serious injury or death.
●The ICC system is only an aid to assist
the driver and is not a collision warning
or avoidance device. It is the driver’s
responsibility to stay alert, drive safely,
and be in control of the vehicle at all
● Always observe posted speed limits
and do not set the speed over them.
● Always drive carefully and attentively
when using the ICC system. Read and
understand the Owner’s Manual thor-
oughly before using the ICC system. To
avoid serious injury or death, do not rely
on the system to prevent accidents or to
control the vehicle’s speed in emer-
gency situations. Do not use the ICC
system except in appropriate road and
traffic conditions. The ICC system is intended to enhance the op-
eration of the vehicle when following a vehicle
traveling in the same lane and direction.
The ICC system uses a radar sensor
on the front of the vehicle to detect vehicles
If the radar sensor detects a slower moving ve-
hicle ahead, the system will reduce the vehicle
speed so that your vehicle follows the vehicle in
front at the selected distance.
The detection range of the sensor is approxi-
mately 390ft (120 m) ahead.

ICC SYSTEM OPERATION
The ICC system maintains a selected distance
from the vehicle in front of you within the speed
range 0 to 90 mph (0 to 144km/h) up to the set
speed. The set speed can be selected by the
driver between 20 to 90 mph (32 to 144 km/h),
based on road conditions.
The vehicle travels at the set speed when the
road ahead is clear.
The ICC system is designed to maintain a se-
lected distance from the vehicle in front of you
and can reduce the speed to match a slower
vehicle ahead. The system will decelerate the
vehicle as necessary and if the vehicle ahead
comes to a stop, the vehicle decelerates to a
standstill. However, the ICC system can only
apply up to 40% of the vehicle’s total braking
This system should only be used when traffic
conditions allow vehicle speeds to remain fairly
constant or when vehicle speeds change gradu-
ally. If a vehicle moves into the traveling lane
ahead or if a vehicle traveling ahead rapidly de-
celerates, the distance between vehicles may
become closer because the ICC system cannot
decelerate the vehicle quickly enough. If this oc-
curs, the ICC system will sound a warning chime
and blink the system display to notify the driver to
take necessary action.

warning” in this section.
The following items are controlled in the ICC
system:● When there are no vehicles traveling ahead,
the ICC system maintains the speed set by
the driver. The set speed range is between
approximately 20 and 90 mph (32 and
● When there is a vehicle traveling ahead, the
ICC system adjusts the speed to maintain
the distance, selected by the driver, from the
vehicle ahead. If the vehicle ahead comes to
a stop, the vehicle decelerates to a standstill
within the limitations of the system. The sys-
tem will cancel once it judges a standstill
with a warning chime.
● When the vehicle traveling ahead has moved
out from its lane of travel, the ICC system
accelerates and maintains vehicle speed up
to the set speed.
The ICC system does not control vehicle speed
or warn you when you approach stationary and
slow moving vehicles. You must pay attention to
vehicle operation to maintain proper distance
from vehicles ahead when approaching toll gates
or traffic congestion. When driving on the freeway at a set speed and
approaching a slower traveling vehicle ahead, the
ICC system will adjust the speed to maintain the
distance, selected by the driver, from the vehicle
ahead. If the vehicle ahead changes lanes or exits
the freeway, the ICC system will accelerate and
maintain the speed up to the set speed. Pay
attention to the driving operation to maintain con-
trol of the vehicle as it accelerates to the set
speed.Normally when controlling the distance to a ve-
hicle ahead, this system automatically acceler-
ates or decelerates your vehicle according to the
speed of the vehicle ahead. Depress the accel-
erator to properly accelerate your vehicle when
acceleration is required for a lane change. De-
press the brake pedal when deceleration is re-
quired to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle
ahead due to its sudden braking or if a vehicle
cuts in. Always stay alert when using the ICC

Vehicle detected ahead
When a vehicle is detected in the lane ahead, the
ICC system decelerates the vehicle by control-
ling the throttle and applying the brakes to match
the speed of a slower vehicle ahead. The system
then controls the vehicle speed based on the
speed of the vehicle ahead to maintain the driver
selected distance. NOTE:
● The stoplights of the vehicle come on
when braking is performed by the ICC
● When the brake operates, a noise may
be heard. This is not a malfunction.
When a vehicle ahead is detected, the vehicle
ahead detection indicator comes on. The ICC
system will also display the set speed and se-
Vehicle ahead not detected
When a vehicle is no longer detected ahead, the
ICC system gradually accelerates your vehicle to
resume the previously set vehicle speed. The ICC
system then maintains the set speed.
When a vehicle is no longer detected, the vehicle
ahead detection indicator turns off.
If a vehicle ahead appears during acceleration to
the set vehicle speed or any time the ICC system
is in operation, the system controls the distance
to that vehicle.
When a vehicle is no longer detected under
approximately 15 mph (24 km/h), the system will

If your vehicle comes closer to the vehicle ahead
due to rapid deceleration of that vehicle or if
another vehicle cuts in, the system warns the
driver with the chime and ICC system display.
Decelerate by depressing the brake pedal to
maintain a safe vehicle distance if:● The chime sounds.
● The vehicle ahead detection indicator blinks.
The warning chime may not sound in some cases
when there is a short distance between vehicles.
Some examples are: ● When the vehicles are traveling at the same
speed and the distance between vehicles is
● When the vehicle ahead is traveling faster
and the distance between vehicles is in-
● When a vehicle cuts in near your vehicle.
The warning chime will not sound when: ● The vehicle approaches other vehicles that
are parked or moving slowly.
● The accelerator pedal is depressed, overrid-
ing the system. NOTE:
The approach warning chime may sound
and the system display may blink when the
ICC sensor detects objects on the side of
the vehicle or on the side of the road. This
may cause the ICC system to decelerate or
accelerate the vehicle. The ICC sensor may
detect these objects when the vehicle is
driven on winding roads, narrow roads, hilly
roads, or when entering or exiting a curve.
In these cases you will have to manually
control the proper distance ahead of your
Also, the sensor sensitivity can be affected by
vehicle operation (steering maneuver or driving
position in the lane) or traffic or vehicle condition

ICC SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
Listed below are the system limitations for
the ICC system. Failure to operate the
vehicle in accordance with these system
limitations could result in serious injury or
●The ICC system is primarily intended for
use on straight, dry, open roads with
light traffic. It is not advisable to use the
ICC system in city traffic or congested
The ICC system will not adapt automati-
cally to road conditions. This system
should be used in evenly flowing traffic.
Do not use the system on roads with
sharp curves, or on icy roads, in heavy
rain or in fog. ●
As there is a performance limit to the
distance control function, never rely
solely on the ICC system. This system
does not correct careless, inattentive or
absentminded driving, or overcome
poor visibility in rain, fog, or other bad
weather. Decelerate the vehicle speed
by depressing the brake pedal, depend-
ing on the distance to the vehicle ahead
and the surrounding circumstances in
order to maintain a safe distance be-
● If the vehicle ahead comes to a stop, the
vehicle decelerates to a standstill
within the limitations of the system. The
system will cancel once it judges that
the vehicle has come to a standstill and
sound a warning chime. To prevent the
vehicle from moving, the driver must
depress the brake pedal.
● Always pay attention to the operation of
the vehicle and be ready to manually
control the proper following distance.
