Head-up display

Information in your line of sight

Stay informed while keeping your eyes on the road with the head-up display in your Golf GTE. Part of the windscreen serves as a projection surface, showing your speed, driver assist system messages, or navigation instructions. The display remains legible even with direct sunlight and can be easily turned off whenever desired.


IQ.DRIVE - Our assist systems

Front Assist monitors the traffic situation in front of your car, warning you when you get too close and even applying the brakes to help avoid collision.

The Lane Assist system is like a friendly co-driver. If it senses your car is drifting out of your driving lane, it gently counter-steers the vehicle back in line.

The Golf GTE is also equipped with assist systems like Travel Assist.
