Brake functions

The car's brakes are used to reduce the speed or prevent the car from rolling.

Besides the foot brake and parking brake, the car is equipped with several automatic brake assist functions. These can assist the driver by not needing to keep his/her foot on the brake pedal when at a traffic light, or when starting on an uphill gradient.

Depending on the car's equipment, the following auto braking functions are available:

  • Automatic brake when stationary (Auto hold)
  • Hill start assist (Hill Start Assist)
  • Auto braking after a collision
  • Regenerative braking
  • Warning and auto-brake when reversing
  • Assistance at risk of collision
