Stay relaxed in busy streets with advanced safety features.
The intelligent driver assistance systems in your Golf R ensure more driving comfort and can help you deal with critical situations very well or even avoid them*. Even if you only notice this technology on rare occasions, it feels good to know that it is there.
*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.
The available Forward Collision Warning system (included in Front Assist) has sensors in the front to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a potential collision. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can help brake the car.
Side Assist provides assistance if you want to change lanes from speeds of 10 km\h upwards. Sensors in the rear of the vehicle monitor the traffic and should they detect any road users in your blind spot or vehicles approaching quickly from behind, the system will alert you via a warning light within the door mirror housing.
The available Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse and even brake for you if needed.
When moving, the available Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. On most models, Lane Assist will help steer to help keep you in the correct lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. If the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors detect the change and your car follows suit.
The available Park Distance Control (Park Pilot) has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close, an alert sounds as a warning.
