Most Volkswagen parking systems are intended to take pressure off you in everyday life. However, there are also systems that are only activated when you find yourself in an exceptional position. You can look after your own vehicle occupants, at the same time as protecting other road users. You shouldn’t miss out on the good feeling of knowing that this protection is in place.
Just under a quarter of all accidents involving personal injury are multiple car collisions. Volkswagen’s Automatic Post-Collision Braking System can help to avoid secondary collisions or reduce their severity.
The proactive occupant protection system uses the ESP and “Front Assist” area monitoring system sensors to monitor critical situations that could pose a higher risk of an accident. It is activated in advance to lessen the severity of an accident through preventative measures.
“Emergency Assist” intervenes if a driver does not take over steering even after several prompts to do so. The system automatically warns other road users and continuously brakes to bring the vehicle to a stop to prevent serious accidents.
The “Front Assist” area monitoring system with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring monitors the distance to vehicles ahead and can detect, within the system's limits, if an obstacle, such as a pedestrian, suddenly appears. If there is a risk of a collision, it can help to reduce the severity of the accident or, in an ideal case, prevent the accident, within the system's limits. At the same time, the car is prepared for possible emergency braking by the driver.
