Does the new C7 in either Stick or Auto have any Hill Hold feature? My other car that is DCT has a seamless hill hold feature that automatically engages when it senses the car is stopped on a grade that is steep enough to cause roll back. You can let off the brake and the car stays in place until you step on the gas. Then Hill Hold releases and you are off.

Even on San Francisco's steepest hills this features works flawlessly.

Of course, if the electronic parking brake on the C7 is quick and responsive, you could use it as a semi-automatic hill hold feature. That is, if I understand it correctly, the parking brake releases upon throttle input.

Good question. Found this in the Owners Manual: (http://www.chevrolet.com/content/da...ip/Manuals and Videos/02_pdf/2k14corvette.pdf

Hill Start Assist (HSA)
HSA is an automatic feature activated when the vehicle is stopped on a grade. This feature is*designed to prevent the vehicle from rolling, either forward or rearward, during vehicle drive off. During the*transition from releasing the brake pedal to accelerating to drive off on a grade, HSA holds the braking pressure to prevent rolling. HSA will*not activate if the vehicle is in a drive gear and facing downhill or if the vehicle is facing uphill and in R (Reverse).

My guess is the C7 version it is very similar or identical to what they put on my XTS and it does work extremely well. I was on the steepest inclines I have driven on (other than in my Land Rover off road) recently at a mountain resort and the HSA worked instantly and flawlessly. Not an inch of back roll. Very nice feature :cool:
