Peugeot 2008 2019-2023 Owner's Manual / Safety / Hill Assist Descent Control

System that provides assistance when descending on loose or soft surfaces (gravel, mud, etc.) or a steep gradient.

This system reduces the risk of slip or loss of control of the vehicle when descending, whether going forward or in reverse.

During a descent, it assists the driver in maintaining a constant speed, depending on the gear engaged, while progressively releasing the brakes.

The system can be used with the gearbox in neutral.

Otherwise, engage a gear corresponding to the speed to prevent the engine stalling.

With an automatic gearbox, the system can be used with the selector at N, D or R.

The state of the function is not saved when the ignition is switched off.
