Trailer Assist

Trailer Assist

Manoeuvring with a trailer can become a test of patience for the uninitiated, for the combination does not always respond as you might expect; occasionally the trajectory being followed is reversed in the mirror. The steering angle is decisive for precise reversing: the optional Trailer Assist assumes the steering function. The driver simply needs to select reverse, press the Park Assist button and use the mirror adjustment button to enter the direction that the trailer should follow. The Passat now steers automatically. However, the driver is still responsible for gearshifting, acceleration and braking.
