Hill Start Assist

Hill Start Assist

The hill start assist governs the starting torque when pulling away on an uphill incline and interacts with the hydraulic brake assist and the transmission control to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards by applying the brakes. This makes controlling the vehicle during hill starts simple and convenient for the driver. So there is no need to worry about the vehicle rolling backwards or the engine stalling.
