INTELLIGENT CRUISE CONTROL: TRANSFORM TRAFFIC
Set your pace with Intelligent Cruise Control, an INFINITI Safety Shield® system designed to respond to fluctuating traffic. As the vehicle ahead slows, the system lowers your speed to maintain your desired distance. When the way clears, it resumes your set cruising speed, so you can glide forward with ease. Set your preferred distance at any time, selecting a long, medium or short interval. Using laser sensors, your vehicle monitors traffic to preserve the space. As you move, the system moderates your distance according to the vehicle ahead. When the pace is faster, it extends the distance. When traffic slows, it matches the speed of the car in front.
With Intelligent Cruise Control available in the INFINITI Q50, Q60, QX60, and QX80, the vehicles can intuitively respond to what’s ahead and give even greater flexibility, the system includes a standard cruise control setting. Perfect when you want to set your speed and soar.

This pioneering technology detects crossing traffic as well as large stationary objects. When the system senses an approaching vehicle, you receive an audible alert and see a flashing light indicating its direction.
