The IQ.DRIVE Driver Assistance Package is Perfect for Winter
Advanced driver assistance systems are incredibly useful in any situation, but even more so when you are dealing with harsh winter road conditions. One of the smartest driver assistance technologies on the market today is IQ.Drive from Volkswagen. Below are several examples of how this safety system protects and aids you on the frozen roads of Illinois.
IQ.DRIVE on Joliet Roads
- Grabbing Presents - The holiday season can pack parking lots and make them a nightmare to navigate. With so much going on, it is useful to have a feature like the rear traffic alert to make you aware of hidden pedestrians or vehicles. There is even an automatic emergency braking system that can prevent potential collisions while you are trying to navigate the busy lot.
- Spotting Road Markings - During blizzards and at night, it can be more difficult to spot the lane markings on the road. The lane departure warning system lets you know when you are drifting without using the turn signal, and lane keeping assist can gently nudge you back into the center of the lane.
- Visiting Family - Driving long distances to visit family members is a common source of stress for many people, especially with the busy holiday roads. Travel Assist is a type of adaptive cruise control that maintains a consistent distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. This automated system is incredible, but it is important to remember that you still have to pay attention to the steering wheel.
