Volkswagen Safety features

Most newer Volkswagens have a number of beneficial safety features

Things like... 

  • Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) detects critical situations to stop skidding before it begins by predicting what your car is about to do. It uses sensors to monitor the progress of your wheels and the moment they start to slip, the anti-skidding technology takes over by applying the brakes to one or more wheels and by reducing the engine power if required.
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a smart safety system that automatically applies the car’s brakes if the driver doesn’t react quickly enough to a hazard ahead, the system can help avoid or mitigate potential collisions.
  • Crumple Zones are part of the tough safety shell of all Volkswagen cars, helping to protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident. Crumple zones are located at the front and rear of the shell, designed to absorb the impact of a crash, increasing the safety of occupants.
  • Driver Alert System - this safety feature gives early warning of when you need to take a break on long and tiring journeys, making motorway driving safer. It works by noting any erratic steering wheel movements and lane deviations, judging the moment that you are starting to feel sleepy and need to stop. The system will alert you with a visual display on the dashboard and a warning sound.

Electric Volkswagen 

So, where do Volkswagen stand on electric cars? 

Here's the lowdown:

Volkswagen ID-3 and ID-4

Volkswagen will soon be launching the ID-3 and ID-4. The ID-3 comes with the choice of three battery types - small, medium and large. The fastest charging battery has an impressive 336 mile range. The ID-4 has a 77 kWh battery net capacity and boasts a 310 mile range. 

Volkswagen e-Golf and e-up

Volkswagen already has the e-Golf and the e-up! in its electric vehicle range, combining the best features of their existing models with zero emissions engines. 

The Volkswagen e-up! can travel up to 159 miles on a full charge, while the e-Golf has a range of up to 144 miles. 

Both  are easy to charge, as the Combined Charging System (CCS) gives you two types of plug, so you can charge your car in the comfort of your own home using a domestic mains socket or a super-speedy wall box, or a public charging station when you’re out and about.
