Combining radar with speed and distance calculations, available Forward Collision Warning (Front Assist) can help prevent collisions by alerting you if it detects a potential collision with a vehicle ahead1. And if you don’t react, Front Assist can give the brakes a jolt, letting you know that you need to take action.
The Front Assist system can even take action if the alerts don’t work. Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) is able to apply the brakes and can help bring you to a complete stop if a collision is imminent. It can even sense when you press the brakes and help apply additional force as needed. Being calculated can be a good thing.
Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) is one of several Volkswagen Driver Assistance features available on the following 2016 Volkswagen models: Jetta, Passat, CC, Golf, Golf SportWagen, Golf GTI, Golf R, e-Golf 2 and Touareg.
