Looks like it might be coming in future HEV and PHEV Niros:

Not that that helps us.
Yeah, that's true. My Outback had the electronic parking brake, and with Eyesight was stop and go cruise.

Interesting that the press release from from February, talking about March 9 debut of the latest model. The text implies they were talking about the MY2019 cars, but those items certainly aren't included in mine. I would have liked the 10.25" center screen. I'm thinking this is a Euro-only spec, and not for North America. Bummer...

That's true, but only the most annoying hypermilers will drive that way (impeding traffic) For (most) drivers, standard CC and maintaining a constant velocity is more efficient than manual control.
fixed it for you.....
