Whether or not you wish to change the lane, the Side Assist feature warns you of potential risks if you decide to go for a lane change. This feature is active at speeds of 30 km/hr or higher. Interestingly, the Side Assist feature is always offered with Rear Traffic Alert as a standard feature and Lane Assist as an optional system. At Team Gunther VW in Daphne, AL, we provide you with a video prepared by the folks at Volkswagen that gives you an overview of the lane change system.
