Electromechanical Power Steering system¹
The available Electromechanical Power Steering system is one of the main reasons that Volkswagen cars have earned the reputation for sporty, dynamic steering. Compared to the conventional hydraulic system, electromechanical steering is much more eco-conscious because it doesn’t produce any waste or require any fluids that need to be replaced. It also helps reduce fuel consumption by only drawing energy from the engine during turning, meaning it essentially turns off while driving in a straight line. Sometimes the details make all the difference.
