Article series: Small helpers with big effects – Part 1 Simple and safe: Volkswagen simplifies parking

Volkswagen Golf
  • The parking assistant celebrates its premiere in 2006, and today it is available in numerous Volkswagen brand models
  • Nearly perfect parking with the help of Park Assist 3.0

The everyday search for parking places takes a toll on time and nerves. When an available parking place is sighted, Volkswagen has been assisting drivers for around 20 years by implementing a parking process that incurs the least possible stress. That is because available assistance systems have been continuously improved over the years. The acoustic warning followed visual assistance. Twelve years ago, Volkswagen was the world's first carmaker to offer a parking assistant with automatic steering. In the latest generation, a Volkswagen can be made to steer into the smallest of parking spaces, either longitudinal or perpendicular, and it automatically brakes in an emergency situation. However, today’s Park Assist is only one of many different systems which can be found in Volkswagen models for assisting drivers in parking.
