Volkswagen Driver Assistance Front Assist

Front Assist

This feature includes sensors in your vehicle’s front to help monitor traffic and alert you to possible collisions. The emergency braking feature can help you brake the car automatically.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Blind Sport Monitor

Blind Spot Monitor

Just as it sounds, these sensors alert you of vehicles that are in the blindspot of your VW. When you switch lanes, it can alert you of any vehicles that you may have missed seeing.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Rear Traffic Alert

Rear Traffic Alert

This sensor is located on both sides of your rear bumper and is especially helpful when backing out or leaving a parking spot. It will alert you visually and audibly of any cars approaching you perpendicularly.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Lane Assist

Lane Assist

As you are driving, this feature will sense if you are moving into another lane without using your turn signal. In many models, it will help steer you back into the proper lane.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Park Assist

Park Assist

Forget the pressure of parallel parking. This feature will judge if a parking spot is big enough for your VW and then assist you in parking. All you have to do is operate the brake, accelerator, and shifter.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control

Rather than simply setting your cruise control to a certain speed, this feature relies on a set distance from the car in front of you. If that car speeds up or slows down your Volkswagen will adjust accordingly.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Park Pilot

Park Pilot

This assistance feature is similar to the park assist, but instead, it helps you back out of or drive into a parking spot. With sensors on the back and sometimes the front of certain models, the vehicle will alert you audibly when you are close to vehicles in front of or behind you

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Area View

Area View

Area view allows you better views on all sides of your vehicle using multiple cameras to grant your better confidence on the road.

Volkswagen Driver Assistance Light Assist

Light Assist

To allow you better visibility when driving at night, light assist switches on your high beams at speeds around 37 mph. If a car approaches you, a camera on the rearview mirror will switch the high beams off.
