New Advances for Volkswagen Driver Assistance

The whole concept behind Volkswagen Driver Assistance is to help you make the most of the available technology and drive with enhanced confidence, so the company is continually upgrading, updating and adding features. Today, we'd like to let you know what's new and improved:

More Parking Assistance

Park Assist first made its debut in 2015 model year Volkswagens, and engineers have updated the algorithms to make parking easier -- even in smaller spaces. Park Assist 3.0 introduces semi-automatic front parking capability to help you with parallel parking, perpendicular parking and pulling out of parallel parking spaces.

Wider Camera Views

Available Area View is a complementary system to Park Assist 3.0. It features four cameras that are located at various places around the vehicle and can be pieced together to deliver a bird's-eye to help guide your Volkswagen into a spot. You can also access individual camera views if you desire.

Improved Pedestrian Detection

Pedestrian Monitoring, which is part of available Front Assist for the 2018 Tiguan, Golf and Atlas models, uses a radar sensor to detect when pedestrians are in the vehicle's path. If you're driving above 19 mph, the system will alert you to their presence; if you're going under 19 mph, it automatically begins braking without issuing a warning (it's important to note that these features do not replace your need to drive attentively).
