How to personalise your vehicle

Tips & tricks

Drive more safely

The main objective of Volkswagen’s driver training is to teach you how to react correctly and deal with moments of danger in all seasons and in different road conditions. We have put together the most important tips & tricks for you: from the perfect sitting position to correct vehicle handling onward to valuable information explaining how to achieve an economical and environmentally friendly driving style.

Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESC)

The Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESC) ensures greater safety and comfort. By braking individual wheels, it can prevent the vehicle from losing traction and skidding.

If your Volkswagen starts to skid, the system uses various sensors to help you regain control of the vehicle.

Drive concepts
  • A visualisation of the front-wheel drive concept

    Front-wheel drive

    In front-wheel drive vehicles, all driving forces are applied to the front wheels, thereby reducing the cornering grip of the front axle. Under hard acceleration, these vehicles have a tendency to steer out of the bend. This can be brought under control simply by lifting your foot off the accelerator.

  • A visualisation of the rear-wheel drive concept

    Rear-wheel drive

    In rear-wheel drive vehicles, the driving forces in a bend reduce the cornering grip of the rear axle. As a result, the rear of the vehicle has a tendency to step out.

  • A visualisation of the 4MOTION drive concept

    4MOTION drive

    In vehicles with 4MOTION drive, the driving forces are distributed evenly to all four wheels. As a result of the reduced effect of longitudinal forces, each wheel can tolerate higher lateral forces. Compared to conventional drive systems, this creates greater safety reserves at the limits of cornering performance.

The consumption and emissions values stated have been determined according to the legally prescribed measurement procedures. On 1 January 2022, the WLTP test cycle has completely replaced the NEDC test cycle, so that no NEDC values are available for new type approved vehicles after this date. The data does not refer to an individual vehicle and is not part of the offer but serves only for comparison purposes between the different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (add-on parts, tyre size, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions as well as individual driving behaviour, can influence the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO2 emissions and driving performance values of a vehicle. Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions values measured according to the WLTP are often higher than those measured with the NEDC. This may result in corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018. More information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC is available at www.volkswagen.de/wltp.

Further information to the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Guide to Fuel Consumption, CO2 Emissions and Electricity Consumption of New Passenger Cars", which is available at all sales points and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern or at www.dat.de/co2.
