2015 Porsche Macan S: HOLD Feature

August 13, 2014

2015 Porsche Macan S

I discovered the 'HOLD' function in our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S by accident. It was just another ordinary day in the soul-crushing, time-suck that is Los Angeles traffic and this neat little feature revealed itself to me. Designed to keep you from rolling backwards on an incline, it actually helped me keep my sanity during a gridlocked Friday afternoon commute.

Here's how it works. Push down on the brake pedal, the car stops. Perfectly normal. Push down a little bit further (once you're at a complete stop) and a little HOLD light engages on the dash. Lift your foot off the brake and the car remains stationary until you engage the throttle. Some other hill-start systems have a time limit, then they release and you roll away but this feature in our Macan holds the brake indefinitely.

When you're in rush-hour traffic this is extremely useful. Everything is very stop-and-go on my daily route, with about 30 traffic lights along the way and it's nice to be able to take my foot off the pedal whenever I come to an extended stop.
