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 stationary at a traffic light, when starting on an uphill gradient or when driving on a downhill gradient.
Depending on the car's equipment, the following auto braking functions are available:
- Automatic braking when stationary
- Hill start assist (Hill Start Assist)
- Auto braking after a collision
- Hill descent control (Hill Descent Control)*
