Well, if you have been driving for long time then I am sure you must have heard about this question many times.
I have explored this a lot, tried both strategies in after all that all my conclusions are here:
- Brake first always when you are driving on highway or at higher speeds (above 40-50 km/h) consistently
- In city – mix between brake first and clutch first as per your comfort.
- Get your leg off clutch whenever possible – even when you are in city
- Always always brake first when driving downhill.
