Hi All,
Wondering what happens if you take your foot off the accelerator in an ASG while driving.
Since it does not have the 'creep' function, does it just come to a standstill as if it were in 'N' mode?

So how does this work if you are going up the ramp in a multi-car park and are 'stationary' waiting for cars in front of you to move. When you need to start moving again, do you need to pull the handbrake, take your foot off the brake pedal, push the accelerator and then take off the hand brake?

You place your foot on the brake and then move to the accelerator to move off again using hill assist which momentarily holds the brake whilst you start to move forward again. Obviously if you are going to be stationery for a longer period of time you would apply the handbreak. Edited by: Beevee

Thanks!
Is Hill Assist a 'by default' option on the VW UP? If not, what 'pack' is it a part of, if anyone knows?

I believe hill assist is standard on all models but could be mistaken.

So back to my other query,
When you are in stop/start traffic and you take your foot off the accelerator in mode 'D', does the vehicle coast to a halt? In other words, is it the same effect as it would be if the vehicle was in 'N'?

Yes but only if the road is level. On a hill you would keep rolling forward or stop and roll backward. The car does not creep forward or backward without the aid of the accelerator. It is a similar affect as keeping the clutch pedal depressed on a manual car.
