Brake Support

Brake Support  - Function - Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection* - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

If the risk of collision continues to increase after the collision warning has been given, Brake Support is activated. Brake Support prepares the brake system to react quickly, and the brakes are applied slightly. This may be experienced as a light tug.

If the brakes are applied quickly, full braking effect will be provided. Brake Support also increases brake force if the system determines that the driver has not applied adequate pressure on the brake pedal.
