How does it help the driver? Anyone who has ever had to drive a trailer into a narrow driveway or manoeuvre into a tight parking spot knows how tricky the situation can be: when it gets down to accurately assessing angle and space, even the most experienced drivers can get on edge. The Trailer Assist removes the driver’s stress while manoeuvring – suddenly it’s child’s play. The driver uses the mirror adjustment switch to set the direction. The vehicle knows where it is positioned in relation to the trailer by means of the reversing camera. The rest is mathematics. Trailer Assist does the calculating – and within fractions of a second, your Volkswagen receives the commands and steers on its own.
