ACC keeps an eye on the car ahead

JAGUAR has launched an Adaptive Cruise Control system that adjusts a car's speed according to the speed of vehicles in front. ACC uses radar technology to keep a constant time gap between the car and the vehicle ahead, eliminating the need to adjust manually the set cruise control speed or disengage the system.

The technology appears first in the XKR sports coupe 2000 model year, which also gains a DVD satellite navigation system, alongside the XJ and XK Series and Daimler. DVD-ROM discs can store eight times as much information as an ordinary CD-ROM, and can produce map graphics more rapidly.

The 2000 model year S-type gains extra options including dynamic stability control (previously only available with automatic transmission), a ski hatch, new alloy wheel designs and three new metallic colours.
