Multi-collision brake

Prevent follow-on collisions.

When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

Hill Start Assist

It’s all uphill from here, in a good way.

This intelligent feature allows you to make a hill start without the vehicle rolling back. If you’re on an incline greater than 5 per cent, the system will hold your car stationary for 1.5 seconds after the foot brake is released by temporarily locking the brake pressure.

Electronic differential lock

Never lose control around corners.

When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected, that is when one wheel spins more than the other due to water or dirt, the system brakes the spinning wheel, transferring engine power to the wheel with the best traction.
