We prioritise safety in our vehicles – beginning with the standard equipment. Proven systems support you in complicated situations that you can be faced with daily in road traffic.
The braking system increases driving comfort and safety. On the one hand it helps to perform critical braking manoeuvres with the basic function of the ABS anti-lock braking system while convenience functions make coping with daily driving situations easier on the other.
By priming the brakes the brake linings are already brought close to the discs should the driver takes his foot abruptly off the accelerator. The valuable time won as a result shortens the brakes' response time and can thus reduce the stopping distance.
The system also intervenes to support the driver on uphill gradients, thereby helping to make the journey more relaxed. The Hill-Start Assist function prevents the vehicle from rolling back when moving from the brake to the accelerator pedal The HOLD function can keep the vehicle stationary without having to maintain constant pressure on the brake pedal.
And finally, the "brake drying" function provides a further boost to safety: In the wet it carries out brief braking impulses, imperceptible to the driver. This enables the water film which has built up on the brake discs to be eliminated which significantly reduces the response time of the brakes.
