Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold

What’s the Benefit?

The electric parking brake provides a higher level of ease and sophistication when operating the parking brake, while the automatic brake-hold feature helps reduce the stress of driving in stop-and-go traffic.

The Feature:

The Civic Type R features an electric parking brake with automatic brake hold.

  • Instead of the traditional hand lever or foot pedal for the parking brake, Civic Type R owners can simply use the electric parking brake switch to set or release the vehicle’s parking brake.
  • When activated, the automatic brake hold maintains braking pressure when the driver applies the brakes, such as in stop-and-go traffic, and releases the brakes when the driver applies the accelerator.
