Volkswagen Offers Standard Crash Avoidance Systems for 2016 Models

Volkswagen announced a new initiative for crash avoidance systems as standard features.
The world's top car manufacturer said Wednesday they will offer numerous systems with optional features on most of the 2016 models sold in the United States.
The crash avoidance systems include automated breaking and other technologies which assist in maintaining safe distance from the vehicle ahead and staying within a lane.
The German automaker also said they will add automated parallel and perpendicular parking processes.
A senior engineer with the company told journalists during a presentation that these features utilize sensors to detect an imminent crash.
He added that the automated breaking system can bring the car to a complete stop at 18 miles per hour.
