Undoubtedly, the best defense against a frontal collision is an alert attentive driver, but the Volkswagen Front Assist system helps to provide extra security when human reflexes simply aren't enough. Utilizing sensors the font end of the vehicle, the Volkswagen Front Assist System scans the area in front of the car for obstacles. If it detects a potential collision, it engages the Forward Collision Warning system, triggering an auditory warning to the driver to take action to avoid an accident. If the driver fails to react in time, the Front Assist system can engage Autonomous Emergency Braking, utilizing the brakes to slow the car to a full stop and mitigate or avoid an accident altogether.
As complex as pulling into a parallel parking space can be, pulling out can be equally ponderous. Luckily, with the front and rear sensors and visual parking display provided through the Volkswagen Park Pilot system, the whole process is exponentially easier. Utilizing both auditory warnings and visual cues on the Volkswagen center stack mounted display, drivers can easily gauge the amount of room they have to maneuver without craning their necks around and potentially bumping other cars in the process.
Staying on the straight and narrow on Massachusetts' winding roadways can be a challenge on the best of days, but with the Volkswagen Lane Assist system, it doesn't have to be. Using sensors to detect the lines on the road, the Lane Assist system can play an audible warning if it detects your vehicle shifting lanes without signaling. If you don't take any action to correct your course, the Lane Assist system can gently adjust the steering to guide your Volkswagen vehicle back to the center of the lane.
