What Is Travel Assist? This Short Video Explains VW’s New ADAS Feature

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan will have a new ADAS featured called Travel Assist. This brief video explains what the system is and how it works. Additionally, the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan will include an enhanced version of adaptive cruise control that leverages GPS and map data.

Although it’s not a direct comparison, VW’s Travel Assist sounds similar in functionality to Ford’s Active Drive Assist and Cadillac’s Super Cruise. However, one of the key differences is that VW’s system does not allow for hands-free operation of the vehicle like Active Drive Assist and Super Cruise. Should a driver take their hands off the wheel of the 2022 Tiguan, a “touch detection” alert will prompt them to regain control.

The 2022 Tiguan will be available in the United States in the fall of 2021.
