How the upcoming Volkswagen Arteon can wave up a slumbering driver

We know our customers appreciate the engaging driving dynamics of a new Volkswagen, and as such, probably don’t want to sit behind the wheel of a fully self-driving car day in and day out. However, Volkswagen drivers also appreciate advanced safety systems and cutting-edge technologies, which is why we thin the upcoming 2018 Volkswagen Arteon will make a big splash at our dealership when it arrives later this summer.


The premier Arteon Gran Turismo made its debut at the recent 2017 Geneva Motor Show to rave reviews. Do you worry about your loved ones taking road trips alone or traveling late at night after work? The Arteon will give you peace of mind with a system called Emergency Assist 2.0. It taps into existing VW safety systems to attempt to "wake up" a driver that hasn't touched the gas, brakes or steering for a programmed amount of time. Audio and visual cues are given, the brake is lightly tapped, and if the driver fails to respond, the system kicks into full gear and steers itself to the side of the road.


Sound too good to be true? You can hear more about the surprising safety innovations coming out of the Arteon via the auto show footage below, as well as by reaching out to our sales team at 877-785-8252.
