Help when starting on a hill
Hill start assist, Hill Start Assist (HSA), prevents the car from rolling backwards when starting on an uphill gradient. When reversing uphill, it prevents the car from rolling forwards.
Braking on gritted roads
When driving on salted roads, a layer of salt may form on the brake discs and brake linings.
Braking on wet roads
When driving for a prolonged period of time in heavy rain without braking, the braking effect may be delayed slightly when next using the brakes.
Parking on a hill
Always use the parking brake when parking on a hill.
Petrol particle filter
Petrol cars are fitted with particle filters for more efficient emission control.
Preparations for a long trip
Before a driving holiday or some other type of long journey, it is important to check the car's functions and equipment particularly carefully.
Overloading the starter battery
The electrical functions in the car load the starter battery to varying degrees. Avoid using the ignition position II when the car is switched off. Instead, use ignition position I - which uses less power.
For winter driving it is important to perform certain checks of the car in order to ensure that it can be driven safely.
