Brake assist systems were originally only found on high-end luxury cars.

However, as the technology has become a little older, it is now more widely available. Once only offered on cars from manufacturers such as Mercedes, Lexus, and Audi, brake assist is now available from more accessible makes such as Citroen, Honda, Toyota, and Ford.

  In Europe, even the little Nissan Micra comes with brake assist standard. The even smaller Daihatsu Cuore -one of the cheapest cars on market- offers brake assist as an option.

The safety ratings on many cars include information about whether brake assist is an option for that model, so you can check their availability when making purchasing decisions.

In case of doubt, ask your salesperson.
