To aid starting on a gradient, your vehicle is equipped with a system that keeps it temporarily immobilised. It keeps the brakes applied for a brief moment, precisely the time taken for moving your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal.

This function is only active when the vehicle is completely stationary, with your foot on the brake pedal, in particular conditions on a slope.
