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 RAV4.



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.
