VW Caddy Can Park Itself!

VW has included their “Park Assist system” in the Caddy for the first time. The system allows the Caddy to park itself both side-on and at right angles to the road – a feature which is particularly practical for courier services.
The system can be activated by pressing a button in the centre console at speeds of up to 40 km/h. Using the turn signal lever the driver selects the side of the street on which they wish to park. If the Park Assist system decides a parking space which is large enough using the ultrasonic sensors in the Caddy, the assisted parking procedure can begin. The driver selects the reverse gear and then only has to press the accelerator or brake pedal. The Caddy takes over the steering of the vehicle.
When parking, the Park Assist system reduces the vehicle speed to 7 km/h. The system can also brake the vehicle should it detect an imminent collision.
The Park Assist system is available for nearly all versions of the Caddy – whether as a van, combi or passenger vehicle, or with a short or long wheelbase.
