Along with the world premieres of the new Golf R (all-wheel drive flagship) and the pioneering e-Golf (high-volume production car with zero tailpipe emissions), at the 2013 International Motor Show in Frankfurt Volkswagen is also presenting a concept car: the new VW Golf Sportsvan. In this Volkswagen, the worlds of compacts and minivans meld together into a new vehicle that offers more space for active recreation, family and work. The Golf Sportsvan impresses with a perceptibly more spacious and flexible interior (with rear bench seat that offers 180 mm longitudinal adjustment and a cargo capacity of over 1,500 litres) and highly advanced assistance systems. These systems include the Blind Spot Monitor incorporating an assistant for exiting parking spaces, which is being implemented in a Golf for the first time. While driving, the Blind Spot Monitor warns the driver of vehicles in the blind spot. When reversing out of a parking space, the system also recognises approaching traffic behind the car that can be difficult for the driver to see; not only can it then warn the driver, but if a collision is imminent, the system automatically activates the emergency braking function.
