Euro NCAP has tested a 2012 model year of VW Golf VII equipped with a system called Front Assist. Front Assist uses a radar sensor to help a distracted driver to avoid an accident or to mitigate its severity. In the speed range 0-200km/h, Front Assist will issue a warning to the driver to try to draw his attention to the critical situation. If the driver responds to the warning, Front Assist will support the braking action by maximising or optimising the braking force needed to avoid the accident. Front Assist can be switched off by the driver and will not default back on again at the start of the next journey.
