Units that help control the speed of a vehicle, called cruise control, were in many cars as early as 1963. However, as a general rule, these units were not used by the average driver. After the 1973 oil embargo crisis, customers started looking for cruise control units in vehicles as a fuel saving device. From that point, cruise control units found a new purpose.

The Audi Adaptive Cruise Control does much more than help with fuel consumption. Once the driver sets the desired speed, the adaptive cruise control program takes over. The adaptive part of the name comes with a radar placed at the head of your vehicle that measures the distance between you and an obstacle, adapting to the pace of the obstruction.

Even when driving down the highway, the cruise control takes into account your speed and maintains the appropriate distance while trailing another car.
