Volkswagen Technology and Safety Systems
Front Assist alerts you to vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists you may encounter on the road so you can react quickly and accordingly. Forward Collision Warning audibly and visually alerts you to potential head-on collisions so that you can apply the brakes in time. In such circumstances, Autonomous Emergency Braking will increase the brake pressure to maximize stopping power and can even activate automatically if it senses a collision is imminent.
Pedestrian Monitoring, also included in Front Assist, alerts you if a person or child steps out in front of your car. If you are unable to apply the brakes in time, the brakes will automatically be activated to avoid or minimize impact.
Lane Assist With Blind Spot Monitoring
Long commutes down the highway can feel tedious and distracting. The available Lane Keeping System can detect when your Volkswagen starts to drift into another lane and can even counter steer to help you stay in your current lane.
The available Blind Spot Monitor will audibly alert you to potential drivers traveling in your blind spot as you aim to change lanes. When Lane Assist is activated, the Active Blind Spot Monitor can counter steer to keep you in your lane if a car in your blind spot is detected.
Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
In the unfortunate event of a collision, a car won’t necessarily come to a complete stop, placing you at further risk of additional impact or collisions. Volkswagen cars come equipped with an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System which engages immediately upon impact to bring you to a full and complete stop. The Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) then automatically unlocks doors, activates the hazard lights, and shuts off the fuel pump so that rescue services can come to your aid even if you are unable to respond.
