In addition to maintaining a set speed, Adaptive Cruise Control also maintains a set distance behind the car ahead of you and adjusts your speed accordingly.VW adaptive cruise control

3. Parking Steering Assist

Not only does Parking Steering Assist help you by steering your VW into a parking space while you operate the accelerator, brake, and shifter, but it can also help you determine whether or not your VW will fit in the spot in the first place.

4. Lane Departure Warning

If Lane Departure Warning senses and unintended drift into another lane without activating the turn signal, it will provide assistance by gently steering you back into your lane.

5. Blind Spot Monitor

If you attempt to change lanes while another vehicle is in or approaching your blind spot, the Blind Spot Monitor will provide an alert.

6. Rear Traffic Alert

Using sensors, Rear Traffic Alert is able to monitor the traffic crossing behind you as you back up. If it senses traffic, it will alert you and even provide brake assistance, if necessary.

7. Park Distance Control

Whether backing out of or driving into a parking space, Park Distance Control helps you out by displaying how much distance you have behind and in front of your VW and alerting you when you get too close.
