Parking Lot Wingman

Parking lots can be unpredictable. Imagine parking in a spot with no car on either side of you. Now imagine getting ready to leave and two giant SUVs are now parked on each side of you.

Enter available Rear Traffic Alert1. When you’re backing up, Rear Traffic Alert scans for cars coming your way. It uses radar sensors in the rear bumper to watch for traffic crossing behind – even if it’s several spots away – and can help alert you if vehicles are headed into your path.

It can even apply the brakes and bring you to a stop to help prevent backing up into the path of a crossing vehicle. This is driver assistance you can get used to.

Rear Traffic Alert is one of several Volkswagen Driver Assistance features available on the following 2016 Volkswagen models: JettaPassatGolfGolf SportWagenGolf GTIGolf RBeetle, and Beetle Convertible.
