I'm not sure what point you are making? :)
It has already been established that all Pumas gave a speed limiter that is activated by pressing a button.
In fact this technology predates the Puma by many years.

Says EU have had this since 2022......I can assure you it has had little effect in Italy :D

Should really call it speed assist. Limiter makes it sound like a hard limit like you get on restricted bike licences.....

Doesn't really seem that different to now in the short term, except it is on when you start driving by default. Just adds a button press to the routine of "lock doors/start-stop off/lane keeping off" haha. Not that I'll be getting a new car anytime soon.

I tried the LIM button for the first time ever at the weekend out of interest. Blimey that thing is damn dangerous. I was on a slip road on to a 50mph dual carriageway and just could have done with a couple more mph to slot in a little more easily and it just stops you accelerating. How on earth is that safe to fit?

I do not use it but like yourself have tried it to see how it works. It is a strange experience when sitting at the present limit then coming into a lower one. :)
It does exactly what its meant to do by setting the limit for the road you are on and will not let the car accelerate beyond this limit, so knowing this you should be selective when you use it.
I can see how it could be beneficial in for example an average speed camera section of road.
