In the 2016 model year, Volkswagen is taking its interior technology to the next level. Nearly every 2016 model will include connectivity features through the new Volkswagen MIB II infotainment system. The new infotainment system includes the VW Car-Net® App Connect. This new feature creates an all new level of connectivity for Volkswagen drivers.
This marks Volkswagen Group of America as one of the first in the industry that supports all three car connection systems: Apple CarPlay®, Andriod Auto and MirrorLink®. These systems allow drivers to access certain apps on their mobile devices directly through their vehicle.
With the new Volkswagen MIB II infotainment system, other vehicle services are available with the Car-Net umbrella, which includes new security features, remote vehicle access, advanced telematics and enhanced navigation.
Driver assistance technology, which was originally only seen in the 2015 Touareg, will now be available throughout the entire Volkswagen lineup. It features Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, all available on the CC, Golf, Golf GTI, Golf SportWagen, Golf R and Jetta.
Another addition to the Volkswagen line is the Automatic Post-Collision Warning, which was debuted on the 2015 Golf. This system is designed to apply the brakes when a primary collision is detected, helping reduce the chance of additional impacts.
Lane Assist, with Lane Departure Warnings, helps warn drivers when they stray from their lane and actively countersteers on its own if the driver doesn’t react. This is available on the CC and the Golf Family. The Golf Family also features the Parking Steering Assistant, which identifies parking spots and steers your vehicle into them.
