BAS (Brake Assist System)

Mercedes-Benz GL-Class / Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Owners Manual / Safety / Driving safety systems / BAS (Brake Assist System)

Observe the "Important safety notes" section  .

WARNING

If BAS is malfunctioning, the braking distance in an emergency braking situation is increased. There is a risk of an accident.

In an emergency braking situation, depress the brake pedal with full force. ABS prevents the wheels from locking.

BAS operates in emergency braking situations. If you depress the brake pedal quickly, BAS automatically boosts the braking force, thus shortening the stopping distance.

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