Volkswagen Safety features
Most newer Volkswagens have a number of beneficial safety features
- 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.
