The effectiveness of braking depends also on the level of maintenance of the brake system, the condition of the tires and the condition of the road.
3-The Smart Stop Technology operates only in certain cases of simultaneous application of brake pedals and accelerator. When engaged, the system reduces engine power to help the brakes stop the vehicle. Factors such as speed, road condition and driver input can all impact stopping distance. The smart stop technology can not replace a careful and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping.
