Keeping your VW on track

Working to keep it between the lines

Lane Assist is a camera-based system that helps keep the vehicle within its lane. It activates when driving above 35 mph on roads with visible markings and can warn the driver and counter-steer if necessary. This feature helps prevent accidents caused by unintentional lane drifting, especially at high speeds. Lane Assist provides an extra layer of protection and peace of mind for the driver, allowing them to focus on the road ahead.

Lane marker identification

This system is designed to keep drivers safe on the road. It can recognize certain lane markings and warn the driver with a steering correction if the vehicle leaves the lane without activating a turn signal. This feature is valuable for the driver because it helps prevent accidents caused by distracted or tired driving. With Lane Assist, drivers can feel more confident and in control of their vehicle.

Convenient settings

Easily activate or deactivate to meet your needs

Lane Assist can be turned on or off through the infotainment system or by pushing the assist systems button. This feature allows the driver to customize their experience based on their preferences and needs. Whether driving on a busy highway or a winding road, Volkswagen has the assist systems drivers need to help make driving easier and safer.

The ins and outs of lane keep assist
  • How it works

    If you’re driving 35 mph or faster, Lane Assist can help keep you from going over the lane lines. If your vehicle begins to drift into another lane without your turn signal on, Lane Assist can warn you and, if necessary, counter-steer to help ensure you stay in your lane. If the counter steering doesn’t prevent the car from going over the line, the steering wheel will also vibrate to help notify the driver.
