Peugeot 2008: Safety / Hill Assist Descent Control

Peugeot 2008 2019-2022 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.

Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control For the system to activate, the gradient must be greater than 5%.

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.

Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control When the system is regulating, the Active Safety Brake system is automatically deactivated.

Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control The system is no longer available:

  • if the speed of the vehicle is above 43 mph (70  km/h),
  • if the speed of the vehicle is being controlled by the Adaptive Cruise Control, depending on the type of gearbox.

Switching on

By default, the system is not selected.

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

The driver can select the system when the engine is running, when the vehicle is stationary or when moving at speeds up to approximately 31 mph (50  km/h).

  • Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control To select the system, at speeds below 31 mph (50  km/h), press this button until its green indicator lamp comes on; this lamp appears in grey in the instrument panel.
  • Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control The system becomes active at speeds below 19 mph (30  km/h); this lamp comes on in green in the instrument panel.
  • When the vehicle begins its descent, you can release the accelerator and brake pedals; the system regulates the speed:
    • Peugeot 2008. Hill Assist Descent Control if the gearbox is in first or second gear, the speed decreases and the indicator  lamp flashes rapidly,
    • if the gearbox is in neutral or if the clutch pedal is depressed, the speed decreases and the indicator  lamp flashes slowly; in this case, the maintained descent speed is lower.

On a descent, with the vehicle stationary, if you release the accelerator and brake pedals, the system will release the brakes to set the vehicle gradually in motion.

The brake lamps light up automatically when the system is regulating.

If the speed exceeds 19 mph (30  km/h), regulation is paused automatically, the indicator  lamp goes back to grey in the instrument panel, but the green indicator lamp in the button remains on.

Regulation resumes automatically when the speed falls below 19 mph (30  km/h) again, if the slope and pedal release conditions are met.

You can depress the accelerator or brake pedal again at any time.

Off

  • Press the button until its indicator lamp goes off; the indicator lamp on the instrument panel also goes off.

At speeds above 43 mph (70  km/h), the system is automatically deactivated; the indicator lamp in the button goes off.
