What is brake assist?
In an emergency braking situation, when you slam on the brakes the Brake Assist applies the brakes with maximum force (more than a human may apply them) helping the car stop as quickly as possible. You have to have applied the brakes first, it does not automatically stop your car for you (that's what auto emergency braking is for).
