Braking system
Braking system


The braking system is of hydraulic type with the front disc brakes and rear drum brakes on all except 1.9 GTI models. On these vehicles disc brakes are also fitted at the rear. On all models, the handbrake is cable-operated on the rear wheels.

The hydraulic system is split into two circuits, so that in the event of failure of one circuit, the other will still provide adequate braking power (although pedal travel and effort may increase). The hydraulic circuits are split either diagonally or front-to-rear according to model. In the diagonally split system, each hydraulic circuit supplies one front, and one diagonally opposite rear brake. In the front-to-rear arrangement, one circuit serves the front brakes and the other circuit the rear brakes.
