Hill Start Assist



What’s the Benefit?
This system prevents the HR-V from rolling when the driver’s foot is off the brake while stopped on a hill, enhancing driver confidence.

The Feature:
Hill start assist helps prevent a vehicle stopped on an uphill or downhill grade from rolling backward or forward when the driver’s foot moves from the brake pedal to the accelerator.

  • Sensors inform the brake-system ECU when the vehicle is stopped on a grade.
  • The ECU maintains brake-line pressure for a brief moment while the driver’s foot moves from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal.
