Brake Assist (All)



What’s the Benefit?

This feature helps drivers maintain optimum control during emergency braking.


The Feature:

Brake Assist is designed to help drivers apply full emergency stopping power in a panic-stop situation. 

  • If Brake Assist detects an extreme rate of pedal application and pressure as the result of a sudden stop, the system applies full braking force to help stop the vehicle in the shortest distance possible. 
  • When the driver releases pressure on the brake pedal, the Brake Assist system deactivates.
