If you’re planning on getting either of them, you’ll be amazed at how safe these performance hatchbacks have really gotten. Join us at Frank Boucher Volkswagen of Janesville to learn more about the safety features available on the 2022 Golf GTI and Golf R.
Upgraded Front Assist System
The 2022 Golf GTI and Golf R bring a new upgrade to the available Front Assist feature that helps avoid collisions with cyclists and pedestrians. For the uninitiated, Front Assists is part of the Volkswagen IQ.DRIVE semi-autonomous driver assistance technology. The intelligent safety feature uses a radar sensor built into the vehicle’s front to detect moving objects such as a vehicle ahead or a pedestrian walking on the road and warns you of potential collisions and provides automatic braking assistance in some instances.
The latest version of Front Assist available on the 8th generation (Mk8) Golf models uses the front-facing radar sensing camera system to help identify and distinguish cyclists and pedestrians from other objects. However, it can now detect objects not just directly in front of the vehicle but also those driving alongside it.
