Taking the stress out of unexpected situations, the new Polo keeps you safer than ever before. If the Front Assist detects a possible collision, it lets you know with an acoustic and visual warning and prepares the car for emergency braking. If you don’t react, City Emergency Braking steps in to slow the car down, with the aim of fully avoiding a collision or reducing its impact.
German Engineered to the highest of safety standards
The Polo is German Engineered to the highest of safety standards. ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) are the leading independent vehicle safety advocate. If you’d like more details, head to their website and read their safety report on the Polo: www.ancap.com.au.
The Polo is equipped with the genius Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Pedestrian Monitoring2. This uses a radar sensor to detect when a vehicle or pedestrian suddenly enters your path without warning and can automatically apply the brakes to reduce the likelihood of a collision.
Using acoustic and visual signal to warn the driver, the vehicle prepares itself for hard braking. If the driver fails to react, the system automatically performs emergency braking. Taking the drama out of any unexpected situations.
The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)* lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance.
* Available as part of the optional Driver Assistance Package on Comfortline, Style and GTI variants.
