Finding a spot to park is now as easy as turning on the available Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist) 1. Available Park Assist tells you if a parking spot is big enough and steer you right into it. All you have to do is shift into drive or reverse, accelerate, and brake.
When you’re driving less than 25 miles per hour, press the Park Assist button and turn on your blinker. Available Park Assist will know which side of the road you want to parallel-park on thanks to your blinker and start scanning for spots. When a suitable spot comes up, Park Assist will prompt you. This is where everyone in the car starts oohing and ahhing. Bring your car to a stop, and put it in reverse while Park Assist takes control of the steering. You still control the transmission, the braking, and acceleration, but the steering wheel moves on its own as Park Assist maneuvers you into your spot. Done and done.
Available Park Assist can help you maneuver out of a spot just as easily as into one. And of course, perpendicular parking is just as easy. Just press the Park Assist button twice while going less than 12 miles per hour and turn on your blinker to get Park Assist looking for perpendicular spots.
If you want to take over during the parking process, just turn the steering wheel, disengage reverse, or press the Park Assist button to turn it off.
Parking will never be the same. Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist) is one of several Volkswagen Driver Assistance features available on the following 2016 Volkswagen models: Passat, Golf, Golf SportWagen, Golf GTI and e-Golf 2.
