Driver Assistance Technology Available on the 2022 Volkswagen Taos
The 2022 Volkswagen Taos is equipped with the IQ.DRIVE® advanced driver assistance technology. This system uses a front and rear radar, ultrasound sensors, and a front camera to collect data and warn you of any obstacles in your path or surroundings. The IQ.DRIVE® technology aids in avoiding collisions while driving.
The Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring scans for vehicles or pedestrians in the front of your Taos. If it detects a frontal collision, it gives you audio-visual warnings. In case you fail to react, the system also provides an automatic braking assistance.
The Blind Spot Monitor searches for vehicles in the oncoming traffic and warns you about the presence of vehicles in adjacent lanes. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert scans for vehicles approaching from the side. This is especially useful when you’re backing out of a parking spot. The Adaptive Cruise Control system maintains a set speed and set distance from the vehicle in front of you. Thus, if the vehicle ahead of you stops, so does your Taos!
How Does the 2022 Volkswagen Taos Help You Stay in Your Lane?
The Lane Keeping System identifies lane markings and checks if your Taos is accidentally veering off its lane. It actively steers the Taos to keep it centered in its lane. This system becomes active only when you’re driving above 40 mph.
What Is the Emergency Assist Feature?
Sometimes, driving for long distances can be a hassle. There are possibilities that your attention might ebb. The Emergency Assist feature available on the 2022 Volkswagen Taos monitors your attentiveness by checking the input of your hands on the steering wheel. It provides visual and audible warnings along with brake jolts to get a response from you. If there is still no input, the Emergency Assist feature will slow the Taos and bring it to a gradual stop in its lane.
