Does VW Front Assist Come with Automatic Emergency Braking?
The Volkswagen Front Assist (sometimes referred to as Forward Collision Warning) system employs the use of audio and visual clues to let drivers know if they are dangerously close to vehicles and/or pedestrians in front of them on the road. The VW Front Assist system is also equipped with an Automatic Emergency Braking feature that can slow the vehicle automatically if drivers do not respond to audio and visual signals in a timely manner, hopefully helping to prevent accidents that could be caused by inattentive driving*.
