Drive more safely

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.
