I don't know if this is a "Feature Request" or just a bit of a rant. It's always bothered me that cruise controls - which had (at least at one time) been promoted as "gas saving" since they'd keep you at a constant (kinda) speed instead of the wasteful accelerate/decelerate/accelerate unsteady foot many drivers use. Bun in every cruise control I've used, you get to a hill and the pedal goes to the metal and I've even had cars downshift and scream to keep the speed setting. I would generally kick off the cruise and apply the accelerator a little more judiciously. I'm really impressed by the "Dynamic Radar Cruise Control" - definitely the most sophisticated cruise control I've ever used. Normal cruise controls will happily drive you into the rear end of a slower car ahead of you. This one won't. That said, how much more difficult would it be to have a mode that "drove" more like a economy-conscious driver. Indeed, a cruise control that follows the very suggestions that a Toyota "Hybrid Driving Tips" video recommends: when driving up a hill, allow a reduction in speed rather than stepping on the accelerator to maintain a constant speed. Sure - some might say there are safety concerns - like the guy behind you NOT slowing down and rear ending you. Yeah, that's possible - if we are counting on our car to do all of the driving (and thinking) for us. That would certainly be no more unsafe than me slowing from 70 to 65, 63, or even 60 while not using cruise control while ascending a hill. After all, I'm probably gonna "coast" up to 72, 73, or 75 heading down the other side. Anyway, with a car with as many computers and tech in it - I'm surprised that a cruise control that accelerates more *gently* isn't part of the programming. If you didn't want that behaviour - you could always turn it off - like you can the DRCC.
