Cars that come with adaptive cruise control
Wave goodbye to leg cramps – adaptive cruise control is here to save the day. And your calves.
Motorway journeys should, in theory, be smooth. Just you, your car, and the long stretch of road ahead.
Unfortunately, you’re rarely alone on a motorway.
While you can control your own driving, you can’t control how other people around you drive, and this often means you’re having to quickly respond to cars braking, changing lanes, or speeding up.
And this can mean leg cramps, especially if you’re on a longer journey.
Luckily, cruise control is here to rescue your legs – and your sanity.
Traditional cruise control has been around in some form for longer than you might think. It was first engineered for steam engines way back in the seventeenth century, and started appearing in cars at the beginning of the twentieth century.
But traditional cruise control systems limit you to telling your car simply the speed you want it to run at – you still have to do all the work in speeding up and slowing down, depending on what the vehicles around you are doing.
And so adaptive cruise control was born.
