Hello everybody!!

I searched, but couldn´t find an answer...

Does the Juke CVT has a system like Hill Assist??

If you are in a hill with breaks on (climbing), when you take your foot to accelerate does it stays in place or pulls up?? or does it roll back if you'r not quick enough??

Thank you very much in advanced!!

Regards

you may have to wait on an answer for that question as there are very few CVT'S in existence at present

You've found one! I have a CVT. Dont know if it has a hill assist system,Ijust drive it!
Its never let me down yet. I have always had enough time to move my foot back to the accelerator without a roll back issue. It does creep forward too if on level ground or slight inclines. I tested it on my moms drive, which is very steep & I just took my foot of the break & left it to see how good it was, eventually it rolled back but only after several long seconds.Maybe others are different & others will disagree. I havent had a CVT before, other than the loan Micra and it was an issue that worried me,but I can only comment on my Daisy Juke experience and its all round fab.

Thanks
Put right foot on the accelerator and left foot on the brake, letting off the handbrake just before starting to pull away. Then let off the brake foot once moving forward smoothly.

Thank you very much!!

Great, as you say it doesn't rool back on a hill!! that was an important issue for me because I had a Smart (1st generation) and it hadn't any system to secure it on a hill, and it was very annoying!!

I notice you have the 4x4 and as the CVT gearboxis different from the 2x4 do you know if the2x4 have the same "system"?? (I'm planning on buying the 2x4)

Many thanks!!

Ok, thank you, I understood!

It seems like the CVT of the Juke have a "system" that eliminates that issue

Garfield, I would ask your dealer to confirm. I have bought the CVT 4WD and know nothing about any hill assist on the car. I have had several automatics now and you get used to quickly shifting your foot from the accelerator to the brake and back again when you are moving off on a hill or even at an opening on a steep hill. The trick is to have only enough pressure on the accelerator pedalto provide enough engine power for the gears to hold the car.
Do not think the car has hill assist just because it takes a few seconds before it rolls back. Hill assist will completely stop the car from rolling back by keeping the brakes applied like on the VW Passat CC.

Jukes do not have a Hill Assist feature, however if it had a tendency to roll back (which I haven't yet noticed) I would just move my left foot to the brake, and then accelerate while lifting off the brake.

I drive a Smart Roadster Coupe with Hill Assist and on this car, I like it in the Smart, but I really hope that my 4x4 cvt when it comes does not have this feature.

I just think its a feature that is not needed and is dangerous.

If you have two cars like I have, the roadie and the Qashqai, the hill assist on the Roadie makes you think you have it on all cars. By that I mean it is easy to forget when doing an up-hill start.

Sometimes, the hill assist does annoy me too.
