Driving around Beverly Hills can be a hike (sometimes literally), but when you have VW driver assistance features like the VW Blind Spot monitor, things are a bit easier. Find out how the VW Blind Spot Monitor works, and take a look at the various models offered with this safety feature and the entire VW Driver Assistance Package.
How VW Blind Spot Monitor Works
The “blind spot” is the area behind the driver on the left and right side of the car that prevents one from seeing another vehicle. The VW Blind Spot Monitor is a special driver assistance safety feature that’s offered on new VW vehicles, which allows drivers to be aware of vehicles in their blind spot.
The Blind Spot Monitor uses two radar sensors, located on the left and right back bumpers of the vehicle. When these sensors detect that an object is located within the range of the driver’s blind spot, it alerts the driver by flashing a “blind spot” LED light warning signal on the left and right side view mirrors. It works alongside Rear Traffic Alert, which can detect oncoming traffic before it enters the range of your blind spot.
