What are the safety features on the Volkswagen Transporter 2020?
Volkswagen medium vans come with a range of safety features, for example, the Volkswagen Transporter 2020 includes the following:
Electronic Stability Control: ESC means that the vehicle is fitted with sensors that track the steering wheel's positioning, and travel direction. This feature activates when a driver loses control of the vehicle.
Auto Emergency Braking: AEB works by detecting objects, and braking automatically when the driver is unable to. The tech can help drivers to prevent a crash, or reduce the impact.
Lane Keep Assist: While this is not an automatically included safety feature, it is an optional one. Lane Keep Assist becomes active when a driver moves out of the correct lane. If the driver is not in the correct position, the technology adjusts the vehicle.
