Did i read somewhere that the Discovery Sport automatically activates the hazard warning lights under heavy breaking or am i mistaken?

Yeah its in the spec for my DS but I've never seen it work neither when I have done an emergency brake or when the AEB activated

You really need to hammer the brakes for them to come on. Seen it work on my Evoque, only because I wanted to try it, so I took it up an industrial estate.

Switched on the hazards in the manner once in a loan car FL2... don't tell the dealer :)

Have not tired too hard to activate in the DS.

Also, did you know if you pull up the hand brake switch whilst driving it brakes all four wheels and brings car to a stop? Don't try this at home :)

My D3 used to brake all four wheel with the handbrake switch, I am told ( do not know how true this is) but the first few D3 a to be MOT tested gave the examiners a problem on the rolling road test
The test hand to be amended I done know is true

I believe pulling the handbrake while moving (pull and keep pulling) activates an emergency brake application.

Personally in an emergency brake situation I don't think I'd think to do that though. Natural reaction would be to hammer the foot brake, and not to let go of the steering wheel!
