Automatic Emergency Braking With Pedestrian Detection

While the 2020 Volkswagen comes with far too many safety features to list here, highlighting some of the new standard safety features is fitting.

If you’re like most people, there have been occasions on which you’ve experienced near-misses, not with other cars, but pedestrians. As you may know, it’s not fun. With standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, a sensor-based crash-avoidance system utilizes mitigated braking technology to help avoid collision with pedestrians. In other words, if you don’t see a pedestrian in front of you in time to brake, your 2020 Volkswagen Passat does.

While there’s no replacement for attentive driving, this newly-standard safety feature may help you as a driver … or as a pedestrian.

Automatic Post-Collision Braking System

In the unlikely event of a collision, a vehicle may not come to an immediate stop. That’s where the now-standard Automatic Post-Collision Braking System (APCBS) comes into the mix.

To help avoid additional collisions after an initial one, with APCBS, your vehicle is programmed to automatically slow down. This can help bring your vehicle to a complete stop and decrease the chances of impact with anything else.

For more information about this, or any other safety feature on the 2020 Volkswagen Passat, visit Gainesville’s preferred car dealership.

Available Active Lane Control, Adaptive Cruise Control

Two additional safety features available on the all-new Volkswagen Passat include Active Lane Control and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Pretty self-explanatory by virtue of the features’ titles, Active Lane Control technology utilizes at least 1 camera to monitor lane markings on the side and middle of the road. When drifting is detected, the driver is alerted.

Tired of hitting the brake or gas pedals and stopping cruise control when the vehicle in front of you slows down or speeds up? Well, then don’t. With the available Adaptive Cruise Control, a sensor-based system keeps your cruise control speed in safe stride with the vehicle in front of you.

As helpful as these active safety features can be, remember, they may assist, but are no replacement for fully-engaged driving. To learn more about all the standard and available features on any version of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat, visit us today.

No Boundaries With The Lifetime Warranty

Not all safety features require references to avoiding accidents. Sometimes, safety features and programs are dedicated to making sure you’re not stuck struggling with a non-functioning vehicle.

With our Lifetime Warranty, the engine, transmission and drive axle are just a few of the areas covered. When your standard warranty expires, provided you’ve adhered to the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance, the lifetime warranty kicks in and has you covered at any licensed service center in the U.S. or Canada.
