Mercedes-Benz GLC : Driving and driving safety systems / Function of BAS

The Brake Assist System (BAS) supports your emergency braking situation with additional brake force.

If you depress the brake pedal quickly, BAS is activated:

  • BAS automatically boosts the brake pressure.
  • BAS can shorten the braking distance.
  • ABS prevents the wheels from locking.

The brakes will function as usual once you release the brake pedal. BAS is deactivated.
