Like many automakers, Volkswagen offers a suite of advanced driver assists that make driving safer and more convenient. VW calls its safety suite “IQ.Drive”, which includes a plethora of help including lane keep assist, forward collision warning, emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot monitor. In most 2021 VW models like the new Taos SUV, IQ.Drive is optionally available for base trims and equipped in higher trims as standard. The Volkswagen ID.4, however, is the first model in the US equipped with IQ.Drive as standard across the board with systems that can detect obstacles, monitor surroundings, and provide semi-autonomous driving.
To demonstrate the advantages of IQ.Drive, VW has revealed some unique scenarios where the technology can enhance the driving experience.
