Toyota’s Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is an incredibly powerful feature when you use it correctly. But how does it work, and when should you use it? 

 

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) works the same as normal cruise control when you’re the only car on the road, but as soon as a car is sensed in front of you, the system leaps into action. When you activate DRCC, select a follow distance between short or extra-long, and your vehicle will slow down to maintain that distance if the car ahead of you slows down. If they speed up or are no longer in front of you, the system will bring your car back to its set speed. 

 

When should I use Adaptive Cruise Control?

Normal highway driving. With DRCC active, you don’t have to worry about going over the speed limit or having to cancel and reset your cruise control when dealing with slow-moving vehicles.

Congested traffic. If you’re in slow-moving traffic, set DRCC for the extra-long distance and a slow speed. 

Speed traps. Lots of navigation apps will warn you about speed traps, but sometimes the speed limit isn’t the problem, it’s people slowing down too much! Use DRCC to make sure you don’t get a traffic camera ticket, and erase the headache of dealing with other drivers while watching your own speed.
