What is braking assist?
When you press the brake pedal, your car’s braking assist system kicks in to help stop the vehicle. This system uses sensors to detect how hard you are pressing the pedal and then applies extra force to the brakes if needed. This can help you stop more quickly and safely in an emergency situation.
There are a few different types of braking assist systems, but they all work to help you stop your car more effectively in an emergency. Some systems may also include features like automatic brake hold, which can keep your car from rolling forward or backward when stopped on a hill.
ABS, or anti-lock braking system, is another safety feature that is often confused with braking assist. ABS prevents your brakes from locking up, so you can keep steering even when you’re braking hard. Braking assist does not prevent your brakes from locking up, but it can help you stop more quickly in an emergency situation.
