Volkswagen driver assistance

Safety has always been a top priority for the Volkswagen brand. That’s why new Volkswagen models offer new driver assistance safety features designed to help the driver not only maintain control of their vehicle, but avoid accidents as well. The Volkswagen driver assistance system comes with seven innovative technologies that function using an integrated camera and radar.

The world’s full of twists and turns so it can be difficult for drivers to be prepared for everything. To give them a hand and a little more confidence on the road, new Volkswagen vehicles will feature driver assistance features to help prepare for the unexpected.

Your vehicle uses front sensors to monitor traffic ahead of it and alert you to the possibility of a collision. If a collision is unavoidable, the system will automatically apply brakes.

Adaptive Cruise Control

This system helps you keep your distance from the cars ahead of you using front radar to detect the distance between you and the car ahead of you and adjust your cruise control set speed accordingly.

Lane Departure Warning

Your vehicle will sense when your vehicle deviates from its lane by using its camera and radar to detect lane lines. So if you leave a lane without signaling, the system will alert you and take corrective action.

Parking Pilot
