Volkswagen Driver Assistance Features


While many drivers consistently practice safe driving habits, like checking their blind spot and using their turn signal, an unsafe situation can sometimes occur outside of their control. That's where Driver Assistance features step in. Volkswagen Driver Assistance features support cautious drivers by making their journey safer than ever before.

Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitoring

A radar sensor will detect a pedestrian in the vehicle's path and alert the driver to prevent an accident. Should the driver fail to brake properly, additional braking pressure is applied. If the driver fails to brake at all, the brakes will automatically be activated.

Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist)

While driving at speeds lower than 12 MPH, your vehicle will scan for perpendicular or parallel parking spaces, detect a spot that your vehicle will fit in, and help steer your vehicle into the space. All you need to operate is the accelerator, brake, and shifter.

Rear Traffic Alert

Sensors on both sides of your rear bumper will alert you if it detects vehicles in your path while reversing. The vehicle will even brake if needed.

Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)

If the forward-facing camera in the rear-view mirror senses that you've drifted out of your lane, it will gently guide you into the proper lane with countersteer.

Adaptive Cruise Control

By detecting traffic ahead of you, Adaptive Cruise Control will help you maintain a safe following distance with the speed you set, and will adjust if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down.

Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist)

The front sensor helps monitor traffic and can even alert you of a potential collision. If an accident is unavoidable, the vehicle will apply the brakes automatically. Should you brake too lightly, braking pressure will increase.

Blind Spot Monitor

Should you misjudge any vehicles in your blind spot, the Blind Spot Monitor will sense traffic and alert you if switching lanes is unsafe.
