Hi, I have moved to a 2018 405 VSE from a BMW X5. I am used to the Auto hold feature in BMW, which is very useful in slow moving traffic and traffic lights. It seems Queue Assist should be similar but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Anyone, please?

Not sure what a VSE is. Queue Assist is part of the Adaptive Cruise Control system. Have you consulted your owners manual? I am not sure what else we can add.

"Queue assist operates at lower speeds than follow mode, allowing the feature to be used in slow-moving lines of traffic. Queue assist activates when adaptive cruise control is active and when a vehicle in the lane ahead slows to a standstill. Queue assist brings the vehicle to a standstill. Briefly press the accelerator pedal to move the vehicle from a standstill. Adaptive cruise control now maintains a constant gap to the vehicle ahead."

I don't think range rovers ever had an auto hold feature unless you are on a hill. But you could always press the parking brake button, that should hold the car in place and release when you hit the accelerator.

So for Queue Assist to operate, the Adaptive Cruise Control has to be active, which can be activated only when the car is operating above a minimum speed. My requirement was that lets say I am already in a very slow moving traffic (below the Adaptive cruise threshold), can I put Queue Assist in action? E.g. The Auto hold feature of BMW can be activated even when the car is at a standstill.

BTW, in Dubai, VSE stands for Vogue SE, one model below the Autobiography.

I think you are confusing two different things. On the BMW all the auto hold does is automatically put the parking brake on when you come to a complete stop, that way the car doesn't roll forward or backwards at a stoplight when your foot isn't on the brake. You could do the same thing in the Range Rover you just have to do it manually each time by pressing the parking brake button when you come to a complete stop.

The queue assist is just part of the active cruise control system, it will follow a car at slow speeds and will stop behind it if needed, it won't do anything for you if there isn't a car in front of you at a traffic light.

But when you are in stop and go traffic with the Adaptive Cruise on, all I seem to get is the "Driver Intervene" warning over and over again when the rover comes to a complete stop.

I thought the car has stop and go but after browsing the manual I guess it does not. It just has queue assist which means you have to press the accelerator after a complete stop to keep it going.
