Download manual 2018 Fiat Tipo 5Door / Tipo Station WagonManual Description
If driving behind a vehicle at a speed above 50 km/h with the Adaptive Cruise Control on, when the direction indicator is turned on, the device provides additional acceleration to aid overtaking. For left-hand drive vehicles, the overtaking aid is activated when the left direction indicator is turned on, while for right-hand vehicles it is activated by the right direction indicator. In left-hand traffic, the overtaking assist function is only active when the left-hand lane is used for overtaking the vehicle ahead (the opposite activation logic is used in right-hand traffic countries).
The device detects the direction of traffic automatically when the car passes from left-hand traffic to right-hand traffic. In this case, the overtaking assist function is only active when the reference vehicle is overtaken on the right. The additional acceleration is activated when the driver uses the right direction indicator.
In this condition, the device no longer provides the overtaking assist function on the left-hand side until it determines that the car has returned to left-hand traffic conditions.
