The Lane Assist in the Passat Highline stops your car from drifting out of its lane, reducing the chance of an accident and making long motorway journeys much safer.
The Lane Assist system is like a friendly co-driver. If it senses your car is drifting out of your driving lane it gently counter-steers the car back on line.
Since many accidents are caused by cars leaving their lanes when the driver's concentration falters, this innovative system makes driving safer and easier. The lane-keeping assistant uses a camera located in the rear-view mirror unit to monitor the road markings and prevent an unintended deviation. The system only intervenes if the indicators are not activated, so if you do want to change lanes and signal your intention, the intelligent system recognises this and switches off.
