Tucson features standard Hillstart Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control.


Standard Hillstart Assist Control (HAC)
•  HAC is designed to help minimize backward
   rolling on steep ascents.

Standard Downhill Brake Control (DBC)
•  DBC is designed to help the driver maintain
   vehicle control and speed on steep, downhill
    descents.

Neither system is available on CR-V, Escape
or Rogue



Note: Neither system is a substitute for safe driving judgement and practices. Factors including speed, grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether DAC and HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control.
