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: Jetta, Passat, Golf, Golf SportWagen, Golf GTI, Golf R, Beetle, and Beetle Convertible.
