There is a reason why Volkswagen Commercial was named VansA2Z and Van Fleet World's Manufacturer of the Year in 2018. And that's because of the innovative technology that is built into every vehicle to that your Volkswagen works with you, thus making business easier, smarter, quicker, more comfortable and more convenient. Find out more about our ground-breaking technology below.
This technology greatly improves peace of mind and safety, especially for people working in multiple city locations such as delivery drivers. The system activates at speeds of 18mph or less and uses sensors to detect impending collisions. When another vehicle starts getting close, it primes the brakes so they can be used more quickly. If it gets too close, the system brakes automatically and completely stops the vehicle.
We all know that tiredness causes accidents, which is why it is more important than ever to ensure that you are alert for every trip. Volkswagen's driver alert system will send you an alert when it is time to take a break by monitoring your driving behaviour (tracking your steering and lane movements). If the system senses you're getting tired, it will ping you a visual notification.
Did you know most bumps and scrapes occur whilst parking? Active Park Assist helps eliminate this risk by parking the vehicle for you automatically. To use the system, you just press a button and the vehicle uses multiple sensors to steer itself into the tightest parking spots. All you have to do is sit back, work the pedals and let the technology do the work.
Adaptive Cruise Control is a device that works with you on your journey by allowing you to keep to one speed, whilst measuring the distance in front of you. The system will detect the proximity of the vehicle in front of you and will adjust your speed accordingly to order to maintain a safe gap between yourself and the car in front of you. If you get too close, audio and visual signals will be triggered and (if required) the emergency braking will activate.
The innovative Selectable and Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive systems enable you and your vehicle to be grounded when you encounter rain, snow, mud or gravel. It is designed to ensure that you have traction even whilst off-road by improving your hold and safety in challenging conditions.
Permanent 4 MOTION is standard on the 180PS BiTDI 8-speed automatic Amarok Highline, all-wheel drive is engaged whether you’re on or off-road. In normal driving circumstances, the Torsen differential will distribute power 40:60 between the front and rear wheels. However, as soon as you are off-road, the system will automatically distribute the power to the wheels with the most grip.
When this is combined with other ground-breaking systems such as Hill Start and Hill Descent Control, you’ll find the Amarok is virtually unstoppable.
