Brake System

Use the electric parking brake to keep the vehicle stationary when parked. When the 
parking brake is applied, you can manually or automatically release it.

To apply

The electric parking brake can be applied any 
time the vehicle has 12-volt battery, no matter 
which position the power mode is in.

Pull the electric parking brake switch up gently 
and securely.

u

The indicator in the switch comes on.

u

The parking brake and brake system 
indicator (red) comes on.

To release

The power mode must be in ON in order to 
release the electric parking brake.

1.

Depress the brake pedal.

2.

Press the electric parking brake switch.

u

The indicator in the switch goes off.

u

The parking brake and brake system 
indicator (red) goes off.

Manually releasing the parking brake using 
the switch helps your vehicle start slowly and 
smoothly when facing down hill on steep hills.

Brake System

When you depress the brake pedal, you may hear a 
whirring sound from the power system 
compartment. This is because the brake system is in 
operation, and it is normal.

Parking Brake

You may hear the electric parking brake system 
motor operating from the rear wheel area when you 
apply or release the electric parking brake. This is 
normal.

The brake pedal may slightly move due to the electric 
parking brake system operation when you apply or 
release the electric parking brake. This is normal.

You cannot apply or release the electric parking 
brake if the 12-volt battery goes dead.

If the 12-Volt Battery Is Dead

 P. 651

If you pull up and hold the electric parking brake 
switch while driving, the brakes on all four 
wheels are applied by the electric servo brake 
system until the vehicle comes to a stop. The 
electric parking brake then applies, and the 
switch should be released.

When the driver’s seat belt is unfastened while 
your vehicle is stopped and brake hold is applied.

When the power system is turned off, while brake 
hold is applied.

When there is a problem with the brake hold 
system while brake hold is applied.

When the vehicle stops more than 10 minutes 
while ACC with Low Speed Follow is activated.

When the driver's seat belt is unfastened while 
your vehicle is stopped automatically by ACC with 
Low Speed Follow.

When the power system is turned off, while ACC 
with Low Speed Follow is activated.

If the electric parking brake cannot be released 
automatically, release it manually.

When the vehicle is travelling uphill, the accelerator 
pedal may need to be pressed farther to 
automatically release the electric parking brake.

Without depressing the brake pedal, pull up the electric parking brake switch.

u

Check that the parking brake and brake system indicator has come on.

3.

Pull up and hold the parking brake switch. When you hear a beeping sound, 
release the switch and within 3 seconds pull up and hold the switch again.

4.

When you hear a sound indicating that the procedure is completed, release the 
switch.

u

Two beeps indicates that the feature has been activated.

u

One beep indicates that the feature has been deactivated.

To confirm that the parking brake is applied, check if the parking brake and 
brake system indicator is on.

If you need to temporarily deactivate the feature for when having your vehicle 
towed. You can follow the procedure explained below.

1.

Depress the brake pedal and bring the vehicle to a stop.

2.

Set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK) and then within 2 seconds push 
down the electric parking brake switch.

u

Activation and deactivation settings for the feature will not be affected.

u

Before temporarily deactivating the feature, make sure to first turn off the 
automatic brake hold system.

Brake System

Driving

Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes at all four wheels. The brake assist system 
increases the stopping force when you depress the brake pedal hard in an 
emergency situation. The anti-lock brake system (ABS) helps you retain steering 
control when braking very hard.

Foot Brake

Check the brakes after driving through deep water, 
or if there is a buildup of road surface water. If 
necessary, dry the brakes by lightly depressing the 
pedal several times.

If you hear a continuous metallic friction sound when 
applying the brakes, the brake pads need to be 
replaced. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

Applying constant pressure to the brakes while going 
down a long hill can cause the brakes to heat up, 
resulting in a loss of stopping power. Therefore, 
when descending a long hill, release the accelerator 
pedal and allow regenerative braking to slow the 
vehicle down. To adjust the rate of deceleration, use 
the deceleration paddle selector.
When the high voltage battery has fully recharged 
regenerative braking may not be possible.

them to lose effectiveness over time and reduce pad

WARNING

Activating the automatic brake hold system 
on steep hills or slippery roads may still 
allow the vehicle to move if you remove 
your foot from the brake pedal.

If a vehicle unexpectedly moves, it may 
cause a crash resulting in serious injury or 
death.

Never activate the automatic brake hold 
system or rely on it to keep a vehicle from 
moving when stopped on a steep hill or 
slippery roads.

WARNING

Using the automatic brake hold system to 
park the vehicle may result in the vehicle 
unexpectedly moving.

If a vehicle moves unexpectedly, it may 
cause a crash, resulting in serious injury or 
death.

Never leave the vehicle when braking is 
temporarily kept by automatic brake hold

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

Driving

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

Helps to prevent the wheels from locking up, and helps you to retain steering 
control by pumping the brakes rapidly, much faster than you.

The electronic brake distribution (EBD) system, which is part of the ABS, also 
balances the front-to-rear braking distribution according to vehicle loading.

You should never pump the brake pedal. Let the ABS work for you by always 
keeping firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal. This is sometimes referred to as 
“stomp and steer.”

ABS operation

The brake pedal may pulsate slightly when the ABS is working. Depress the brake 
pedal and keep holding the pedal firmly down. On dry pavement, you will need to 
press on the brake pedal very hard before the ABS activates. However, you may feel 
the ABS activate immediately if you are trying to stop on snow or ice.

ABS may activate when you depress the brake pedal when driving on:

Wet or snow covered roads.

Roads paved with stone.

Roads with uneven surfaces, such as potholes, cracks, manholes, etc.

When the vehicle speed goes under 10 km/h (6 mph), the ABS stops.

ABS

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

NOTICE

The ABS may not function correctly if you use a tyre 
of the wrong size or type.

If the 

ABS

 indicator comes on while driving, there 

may be a problem with the system.
While normal braking will not be affected, there is a 
possibility that the ABS will not be operating. Have 
your vehicle checked by a dealer immediately.

The ABS is not designed for the purpose of reducing 
the time or distance it takes for a vehicle to stop: It is 
designed to limit brake lockup which can lead to 
skidding and loss of steering control.

In the following cases, your vehicle may need more 
distance to stop than a vehicle without the ABS:

You are driving on rough or uneven road surfaces, 
such as gravel or snow.

The tyres are equipped with tyre chains.

The following may be observed with the ABS system:

Motor sounds coming from the motor

compartment when the brakes are applied, or when 
system checks are being performed after the power 
system has been turned on and while the vehicle is 
accelerates.

Brake pedal and/or the vehicle body vibration when 
ABS activates.

These vibrations and sounds are normal to ABS 
systems and are no cause for concern.

Emergency Stop Signal

Driving

Emergency Stop Signal

Activates when you brake hard while driving at 60 km/h (37 mph) or above to alert 
drivers behind you about sudden braking by rapidly flashing hazard warning lights. 
This may help to alert drivers behind you to take appropriate means to avoid a 
possible collision with your vehicle.

When the system activates:

The hazard warning lights stop flashing when:

You release the brake pedal.

The ABS is deactivated.

Your vehicle’s decelerating speed becomes moderate.

You press the hazard warning button.

1

Emergency Stop Signal

The emergency stop signal is not a system that can 
prevent a possible rear-end collision caused by your 
hard braking. It flashes the hazard warning lights at 
the time you are braking hard. It is always 
recommended to avoid hard braking unless it is 
absolutely necessary.

The emergency stop signal does not activate with the 
hazard warning button pressed in.

If the ABS stops working for a certain period during 
braking, the emergency stop signal may not activate 
at all.
