Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)
No matter how fast your mind works, there are some things you won’t think to do in the event of a collision. Like turn off power to the fuel pump. The Intelligent Crash Response System in the Passat does that, in addition to unlocking the doors and automatically turning on the hazard lights.¹ Because it’s always nice to know you’re not the only quick thinker in the car.
- The Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) will only activate in a collision where the airbags deploy or safety belt pretensioners activate. Not all collisions cause airbags to deploy or safety belt pretensioners to activate.
