Keeps you to your lane, and keeps others at a distance.
The new Polo includes a capacitive steering wheel when you opt for Travel Assist: thanks to a touch-sensitive surface, it can detect whether you physically have your hands on the wheel. Travel Assist puts the comfort into driving by providing assistance in monotonous and tiring situations. Travel Assist also helps keep you in lane and maintain your speed while taking into account the distance from vehicles in front, especially on motorways and major roads.
Within system limits. The driver must be prepared at all times to override the assistance system. These systems do not absolve drivers of their responsibility to drive with due care and attention.
Keeps your distance, and to speed limits.
Adaptive cruise control (ACC) can help you keep within your pre-set maximum speed (up to 210 km/h) and maintain your distance to the vehicle in front. It also helps your new Polo to automatically stop and start moving in traffic jams (if the DSG automatic gearbox option is installed).
Change lanes systematically.
The Side Assist lane change assist system uses an LED lamp in the exterior mirrors to indicate that there are other vehicles in the blind spot or driving up to 50 m behind you.1 When you indicate to change lanes, the system calculates whether one of these vehicles could pose a hazard based on position and speed, and then flashes to alert you to this.

Driving into a parking space made easy
The new Polo with optional Park Assist1 including parking distance warning system not only tells you whether a parking space is large enough when driving past, but can also drive into it for you2. You control the clutch, accelerator, and brake, and observe your surroundings,2 and the system does the rest.
Sensors scan suitable parking spaces (up to a maximum of 40 km/h).
Parallel parking spaces must have one vehicle length plus 80 cm manoeuvring distance for parking, and at least 25 cm in front of and behind the vehicle for driving out of a parking space.
