The optional Traffic Jam Assist uses proven functions such Adaptive Cruise Control ACC and lane keeping system Lane Assist to allow easy slow driving in traffic jams. Your Golf will track the vehicle ahead and automatically operate the accelerator and brakes within the limits of the system. The vehicle is kept in lane.
The optional Emergency Assist system automatically engages when no driver activity can be detected, and there has been no response despite a warning. The system then tries to both prompt the driver and warn the passengers and other road users with brake jolts, acoustic warnings, the hazard warning lights and gentle steering movements. If the driver still does not take over control of the vehicle, the vehicle will be brought to a standstill in a controlled manner. This allows accidents to be prevented within the system limits.
Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist are part of the driver assistance package.
