What Are the Driver Assistance Technology Systems Available on the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta?
The 2021 Volkswagen Jetta offers a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance features.
The Front Assist system warns you if it detects a possible frontal collision. It also applies the brakes if you do not stop with Autonomous Emergency Braking. Apart from providing audio-visual warnings, it also flashes a warning symbol in the instrument cluster if the Jetta is traveling at speed above 18 mph.
The Blind Spot Monitor uses radar sensors placed at the back of the vehicle to keep an eye on oncoming traffic. It alerts you to other vehicles in adjacent lanes, i.e., in your blind spot.
The Rear-Cross Traffic Alert system detects vehicles approaching from the sides, especially when you’re reversing. It offers a 180-degree view and provides audio-visual warnings if it detects a potential collision.
The Adaptive Cruise Control system uses a forward-facing radar to maintain a preset distance and speed from the vehicle in front of you. Thus, if the vehicle ahead of you slows down or stops, so does your Jetta!
The Lane-Keeping System is activated at speed above 40 mph if the system’s camera recognizes lane markings. It uses a unique algorithm to check if your Jetta inadvertently strays from the lane without giving the turn signal.
Passive Safety Features on the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta
The 2021 Jetta is equipped with an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and an Intelligent Crash Response System, which mitigate the damage once the collision has occurred.
