Distance Alert is part of Adaptive Cruise Control and is a function that provides information about the time interval to the vehicle ahead.

Distance Alert is active at speeds above approximately 18 mph (30 km/h). Time interval information is only given for a vehicle that is driving ahead of your vehicle in the same direction.

No information is provided for vehicles driving toward you, moving very slowly, or at a standstill.
