Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle to achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability control system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.
Many drivers do not brake with enough force in an emergency, so this technology has been designed to respond to this problem by providing extra power when needed the most. Emergency Brake Assist is intelligent enough to know when you are trying to do an emergency stop and will react to this.
When Emergency Brake Assist is activated, the anti-lock braking system also activates to prevent the wheels locking up. This allows the vehicle to remain steady, and all the technology works in conjunction to give you maximum stopping power, helping you to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
