    The new T-Cross – “I am safe”: standard Pedestrian Monitoring will make the city safer

    Volkswagen is set to unveil the new T-Cross for the first time in a trailer entitled “I am safe”, two weeks ahead of the world première of the new SUV. At the end of the 14-second clip, the most compact of all Volkswagen Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) automatically activates emergency braking via the City Emergency Braking System, including Pedestrian Monitoring, to protect a distracted smartphone user who walks out into the road. “I am safe” is one of four focus areas that describe the most important properties of the T-Cross. The launch starts in spring 2019.

    Golf Sportsvan – the update

    Perfected all-rounder The Golf Sportsvan is one of the most flexible and spacious cars in the compact class. With its elevated seating position and a rear seating system with longitudinal adjustment, the Sportsvan offers interior properties that are otherwise usually found only in a traditional van. As a result, this Golf will appeal to drivers who like to sit a little higher, who travel with children, who want flexibility for their leisure activities and who value a compact Volkswagen that offers a lot of stowage space. Now an update has sharpened the design and features of the all-rounder while, at the same time, Volkswagen has updated its drive, assistance and infotainment systems.

    The New Volkswagen Arteon Innovative driver assistance systems in detail – part 2: 'Pre-Crash proactive occupant protection system'

    It's a scenario that no one wishes for: traffic lights on red, a look in the rear-view mirror, the vehicle behind is approaching much too fast – a rear-end crash is looming. In such situations, the new, optional 'Pre-Crash occupant protection system' in the Arteon now provides assistance to the limit of its capabilities. For the first time, the Pre-Crash sensors are able to react not only to processes relating to driving dynamics (detected by functions such as the ESC) and to acute risks of collision from the front (registered by Front Assist), but also to hazards at the rear. For this the system uses data from Side Assist. Within fractions of a second it is able to initiate measures to lessen wherever possible the consequences of any accident.
