2020 VW Passat Safety Features


Safety Starts With The 2020 Passat

Built from the inside-out to keep you and your passengers safe in the most unfortunate of accidents, the 2020 VW Passat’s exterior can be likened to an exoskeleton. Constructed from durable materials and designed to help absorb kinetic energy, the exterior is made to be your first line of defense. The 2020 VW Passat also features a durable safety cage made to withstand any punishment. Front and rear crumple zones work in tandem with the safety cage to disperse energy from the crash away from the cabin and keep you safe and sound.

Hardware Designed To Defeat Any Hazard

In the event of an unforeseen accident, the 2020 VW Passat does its utmost to provide the ultimate protection in every facet. Should a collision potent enough to cause the airbags’ deployment to occur, Intelligent Crash Response System can deactivate the fuel pump, unlock the doors and activate hazard lights. It takes care of the important post-crash aspects so that you can focus on yourself and your passengers. Additionally, the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System kicks in after a crash to slow or stop the vehicle in order to prevent damage from additional impacts.

Seven Splendid Stability-Enhancing Systems

With Electric Brake-Pressure Distribution, Electronic Stability Control and more, the 2020 VW Passat provides drivers with a plethora of systems to ensure your vehicle is a stable and sturdy ride. Electric Brake-pressure Distribution automatically varies the force applied to each wheel based on speed, road condition, vehicle sway and more. This helps find and maintain the optimal braking pressure during hard-braking situations. Electronic Stability Control monitors traction and steering control to keep your vehicle firmly on the road. It achieves results by adjusting engine throttle and applying corrective forces to the wheels that need the assistance the most.

Suite Of Safety Oriented Technologies

The 2020 VW Passat is packed to the brim with systems designed to prevent and mitigate damage in any situation. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a preset speed and distance from the vehicle in front of you, slowing or quickening as necessary to keep up with the speed of traffic. Blind Spot Monitor alerts you to cars outside of your peripheral vision while changing lanes, and the available Active Blind Spot Monitor can even help counter-steer to avoid any contact. Lane Assist senses if you start to drift into another lane without the use of a turning signal to keep you firmly centered where you belong.

The Front Assist system utilizes Forward Collision System via radar to monitor traffic and warns you of any potential hazards with visual and audible warnings. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking can supplement the driver with increased braking pressure or apply the brakes automatically, as the situation dictates.
