Virtual reality and augmented reality. Besides the use of artificial intelligence of the Cognitive Manual, another Volkswagen Nivus' differential is the massive use of augmented reality, from the prototype development process to the dealerships’ showrooms. "The Nivus has really arrived to inaugurate a new digital age for Volkswagen, with lots of technology. We will use virtual reality to show the Nivus to our customers. Through the DDX (Digital Dealer Experience), the customer will be able to see all car details in 3D, all them in a fully virtual way", says Gustavo Schmidt, Volkswagen do Brasil's Marketing and Sales vice-president. "More than 85% of the dealerships in Brazil will be equipped with this complete virtual reality structure."
And more: the customer will be able also to know the Nivus firsthand from his own home, using an app developed by Volkswagen with augmented reality technology.With a smartphone or a tablet, the customer will be able to 'travel' between the real and virtual worlds. He will see all details, turn the car around, open the doors, windows, or even the luggage trunk. By the way, an excellent luggage compartment, with 415 liter and easy access.
Safety first. Using the DDX it is also possible to know the Nivus' main safety features. Thanks to the MQB Modular Strategy, also used in the models Polo, Virtus and T-Cross, it is possible to adopt equipments so far available only in upper segment vehicles.
Fatigue Detector, ISOFIX and top-tether to fix child seats in the rear seat, Kessy (keyless doors opening and engine start), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), HHC (Hill Hold Assist), and rearview camera are other safety and comfort items present in the Nivus. Headlights and rear lights use LED, as well as the DRL (Daytime Running Light).
The ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) is one of the Nivus' most advanced features. It allows the driver to adjust the speed and the distance he wants to keep from the vehicle ahead. The system can automatically accelerate and brake. It is the only model in the compact segment in Brazil to count with it. The Nivus is also equipped Emergency Brake), a system that when it identifies the imminent risk of a frontal collision, brakes the car autonomously, completely avoiding a collision, in some situations.
