New Volkswagen Technologies

When it comes to technology, Volkswagen has always been cutting edge and ahead of the curve and there are many exciting additions to Volkswagen technology this year that are worth checking out!

Available Light Assist/Adaptive LED Lights

High beams are important when driving on poorly lit roads or in poor weather conditions, but you don’t want to be “that person” and blind oncoming traffic. Volkswagen takes that worry off your shoulders. Adaptive LED lights turn when your car turns rotating 13 degrees in either direction when you turn your steering wheel.

Automatic Post Collision Braking System

Sometimes in a panic, we might not react as quick as necessary. Volkswagen takes over, so you don’t have to worry. The moment an accident is detected, the system will automatically tighten your seatbelts and trigger emergency braking to prevent further accidents.

Available Driver Profile Selection

Do you share your car with other family members? Are you tired of your seat being set wrong or your kids’ radio station blaring when you start your car? Volkswagen has created a driver profile system where you can store personal settings for up to 4 family members such as seat position, climate control and radio stations.

Adaptive Cruise Control

When this is activated it can maintain the pre-selected following distance between you and the traffic ahead, up to your selected speed. If the car in front of you slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car will slow down to match the other car’s speed.

Available Lane Assist

We all try to drive carefully but nobody’s perfect and we can make mistakes. For example, you may drift into another lane without noticing. Volkswagen has you covered. If you start to drift into another lane without using your turn signal, the system can help you steer to keep you in the correct lane.

Available Blind Spot Detection

No one has 20/20 peripheral vision, but Volkswagen has created technology to monitor what you could miss. Blind spot detection sensors will alert you if other vehicles are in your blind spot.


While all of these new technologies are exciting and extremely helpful in keeping you and your family safe, these features are for driver assistance only. These features are not a substitute for an engaged and alert driver. Please continue to pay full attention to the road and safe driving. Please come and see us at Maple Ridge Volkswagen to test drive a vehicle and see these new features for yourself!
