Volvo XC90: Brake Assist System - STARTING AND DRIVINGVolvo XC90: Brake Assist System

The brake enhancing system, (BAS1), helps increase braking force and can thereby reduce braking distance.

The system monitors the driver's braking habits and increases braking force when necessary. Braking force can be increased up to the point at which the ABS intervenes.

NOTE

When BAS is activated, depress and hold down the brake pedal as long as needed.
