Driver Assistance Features for the 2016 Volkswagen Passat
Seven optional driver assistance features are available on certain trims for additional safety with the 2016 Volkswagen Passat:
Front Assist: This tool will alert you if you are getting too close to the vehicle in front you and helps stop the 2016 Passat to avoid collisions.
Blind Spot Monitor: The blind spot monitor senses other vehicles and will give a warning if you are trying to change lanes.
Rear Traffic Alert: When you are reversing out of a tight parking stall, the rear traffic alert will give you a warning if another vehicle is about to drive behind you.
Lane Assist: Do you find yourself occasionally drifting into other lanes? The lane assist tool will help keep you in your lane by offering alerts.
Park Assist: Is parallel parking nerve-wracking for you? Not anymore! With park assist, your 2016 Passat can determine if the available stall is the right size and will guide you as you park!
Adaptive Cruise Control: We’ve all had the experience of cruising along on the highway when we suddenly have to slow down (and have to reset the cruise control) because the vehicle in front of us is going significantly slower. Adaptive cruise control senses the speed of the vehicle in front of you and will keep you a safe distance from it even if that vehicle slows down.
Park Pilot: When we parallel park, it can sometimes be a little challenging to determine how much room you have between the vehicles in front of you and behind you. Park pilot does the calculating for you and will give you warnings if you are getting too close!
