Using the handbrake

The handbrake has a new home in the a-class

It is located to the right and slightly below the steering wheel. Look out for the lever with a 'P' on it.

How does it work? 

To release the handbrake you will need to pull the lever. To engage it, you will need to press the lever.

How does it work?

To change into reverse, you will need to push down on the gear stick so it goes inwards and then move the gear stick down to the bottom left.

Don't forget the cool key
