Lets you park quickly and easily - at the touch of a button

Volkswagen Technology - Parking Sensors

Using our electronic parking brake couldn't be easier. Just pull and hold the button and your car is securely parked and an indicator light reassures you that the brake is on. When you're ready to drive off again just depress the brake pedal, push the button to release the parking brake and drive away.

It gives you more space in the car, too, because the conventional handbrake lever is no longer needed. That means more storage space between the front seats.

The electronic parking brake is operated by means of two geared electric motors on the rear disc brakes which when engaged will hold your car securely parked.

Indicator lights in the instrument cluster and on the button show when the parking brake is on.

Please refer to your Volkswagen Owner's manual for official guidance on use and operation of all our technology.
