1. A vehicle control system for a vehicle having a continuously variable transmission for delivering an output power of a prime mover to a driveshaft, that is configured to detect an execution of a kick-down operation by a driver to increase an opening degree of an accelerator abruptly, and to control a speed ratio of the continuously variable transmission in such a manner as to achieve a required driving force based on the opening degree of the accelerator, comprising:
a controller that is configured to control the output power and the speed ratio in such a manner that an actual driving force is increased stepwise to the required driving force to be achieved by the kick-down operation, so as to temporarily hold an increase in an acceleration during execution of the kick-down operation.
