What Does the Highway Assist System Do? 

The Highway Assist System keeps the vehicle in the centre of its lane, maintaining the speed selected on the vehicle’s adaptive cruise control, as well as a set distance from the vehicle in front of you. Your vehicle will automatically adjust its speed as needed to provide optimal positioning for safe travel. 

How Can Drivers Activate Highway Assist? 

To activate the Highway Assist System, certain conditions must be met. Drivers must be traveling at highway speeds with both hands on the steering wheel, and the vehicle’s Adaptive Cruise Control system must be active. Push the HAS button on the left side of the steering wheel, and within five seconds the system should activate. 

Highway Assist System Limitations

The Highway Assist System has built-in limitations that will deactivate the feature in certain situations. If the driver removes their hands from the steering wheel, changes lanes without signaling, or the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, the system will deactivate. Similarly, HAS is not compatible on every road, and may deactivate when coming up on a winding curve or narrow bend.
