2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Aggressive Hill Hold

August 13, 2012

It's rare when a car with an automatic transmission has an aggressive hill hold feature. I'm not complaining. I thinks it's a good idea in any car. I sure wish more cars had hill hold when I was learning to drive stick. Everything seems like a hill when you are a newbie.

What's interesting about the VW Beetle's hill hold is that it works forward and back. I've never noticed that in any other maker's cars. So, not only will it keep you from rolling backwards, it holds you tight when you are facing downhill as well.
