Safety Features.

With the exceptional power the Golf R offers it would be remiss of us not to pair it with safety features that are up to the job. The extra kilowatts are matched with a raft of safety and driver aids, which all come together to help you not only enjoy the ride, but get home safe every time.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)3

    A smart way to cruise.

    An upgrade on the conventional cruise control system, Adaptive Cruise Control employs the use of a radar sensor that, once you select your speed range, monitors the road ahead for other vehicles and adapts your speed accordingly. This allows you to invariably maintain a safe distance when driving.

  • Front Assist with City Emergency Brake3

    It puts your foot down for you.

    Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when a vehicle in front of you gets too close. The system then warns the driver and prepares the car for emergency braking, giving you a better chance of avoiding a collision.

  • Blind Spot Monitor

    Bye-bye blind spots.

    Using sensors, this genius feature informs you with illuminated symbols on each of your side mirrors when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.

3. Safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, but should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices.

More cost effective than you think.

Keep your Volkswagen running at the top of its game.

It's all in the details.
