Using HDC

Using HDC  - Hill Descent Control (HDC) - Your driving environment - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

HDC allows the car to roll forward at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h), and 4 mph (7 km/h) in reverse. However, the accelerator pedal can be used to select any speed that is possible in first or reverse gears. When the accelerator pedal is released, speed is quickly reduced again to 6 mph (10 km/h) or 4 mph (7 km/h), depending on the gear selected, regardless of the hill's gradient. It is not necessary to apply the brakes.

Х The brake lights illuminate automatically when HDC is controlling the vehicle's speed.

Х The driver can slow or stop the vehicle at any time by applying the brakes.

HDC is deactivated when:
Х The button on the center console is pressed
Х A gear higher than first gear is selected
Х D is selected on vehicles with an automatic transmission

HDC can be deactivated at any time. If this is done while driving down a steep hill, the system's braking effect will decrease gradually.

NOTE
Engine response to pressure on the accelerator pedal may be slightly slower than normal when HDC is activated.
