I wonder if it is 'officially' Hill start assist or just a design / safety feature when on an incline? Just seems strange that the 2013 brochure makes a deal of highlighting this as being on the 3.0 & 3.5d only. Anyway - really pleased!
Are you happy with the manual gearbox?
I'm confused by the terminology- I'm currently thinking Hill Start Assist= Auto Hold (as displayed by the dash light)= You come to a stop, and the brakes auto hold (on the parking brake) the car until you accelerate away.
