Innovative assistance systems. The T-Roc Cabriolet’s driver assist systems put it at the forefront of its segment. Volkswagen compiles these in a number of packages according to customer preference.
The Front Assist Autonomous Emergency Braking system comes as standard. This uses a front radar that covers a distance of up to 200 metres with a 60-degree aperture angle, and coordinates with the camera. Front Assist is able to avoid accidents with other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists in front of the car or reduce their severity. It provides the driver with a visual, acoustic and tactile warning, and in an emergency it initiates a hard brake. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, Lane Assist and the Driver Alert System are also included as standard.
Radar to the rear. The blind spot sensor operates in conjunction with two radar sensors at the rear which have a range of 30 metres. If the driver wishes to turn off or change lanes, an indication is provided as to whether other vehicles are in the blind spot or approaching at speed from behind. Rear Traffic Alert works in a similar way, warning of vehicles crossing the vehicle’s path when the driver is backing out of a parking space. An ideal supplement here is Park Assist, which steers the car into gaps and out again.
Traffic Jam Assist is activated in slow-moving traffic at speeds of less than 60 km/h: it helps the driver maintain a distance to the vehicle in front and keep to the lane. Emergency Assist initiates an emergency stop if the driver is no longer able to do so. The proactive occupant protection system attempts to mitigate the consequences of a collision by almost closing the windows and tightening the front seat belts.
Active up to top speed. Volkswagen also supplies Adaptive Cruise Control ACC as an option. In conjunction with the manual gearbox, this regulates the distance to the vehicle in front by accelerating and decelerating within a range of 30 km/h up to top speed. With the DSG gearbox, regulation starts as soon as the car sets off.
