White vehicle approaching blue vehicle on the road and with available Adaptive Cruise Control, seen from above.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps the vehicle maintain a preset speed and distance from the car in front of you. When activated, if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car follows suit up to the preset speed.81

 

Blue vehicle approaches white vehicle from behind on the left. White vehicle waits to change lanes.
Blind Spot Monitor

The Blind Spot Monitor is a feature that can sense what you might miss. If you attempt to change lanes, Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to other cars that may be in your blind spot. The Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can also counter-steer within the limits of Lane Assist to help keep you in your lane if you attempt to change lanes when a vehicle is in your blind spot.82

Brights dim as white vehicle approaches blue vehicle at night.
Light Assist

Available High Beam Control (Light Assist) can help to provide optimum visibility on dark roads by automatically turning on your high beams at speeds above 37 mph. A camera mounted at the base of the rearview mirror turns your high beams on when conditions warrant it. It then turns them off again depending on the position of vehicles driving ahead of you or on-coming vehicles, the vehicle speed and other environmental and traffic conditions.

Vehicle drifts out of its lane, then corrects its position.
Lane Assist

When moving, the available Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. Within the limits of the system, Lane Assist can help keep you in the current lane when lane markings are detected.83

Vehicle parallel parks
Park Assist

The available Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist) can determine if a parking spot is big enough for your Volkswagen. Then it will help steer the vehicle into and out of the space, either parallel or perpendicular. You operate the accelerator, brake, and shifter; it does the rest.84

Vehicle moves to avoid cars as it exist its parking space
Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking

Available Park Distance Control has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close to a detected object, the system beeps as a warning. Maneuver Braking (included with Park Distance Control) can apply emergency braking force automatically to help mitigate and in best case prevent collisions with detected stationary obstacles while you maneuver the vehicle in reverse gear.85

White vehicle approaching blue vehicle on the road and alerts as it gets too close.
Front Assist

The Forward Collision Warning (included in Front Assist) system can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential rear-end collision with the vehicle moving ahead. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, if the driver does not react at all, it can apply the brakes automatically. Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist) feature can warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances, can brake automatically to help mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond to the warnings.86

White vehicle reverses to exit its parking space, waiting till a blue vehicle passes to move.
Rear Traffic Alert

Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to detected vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and can even help brake the vehicle if needed.87

“You’ll be smitten with the GTI’s interior within 30 seconds of getting inside. It’s just that good.”
