The SUPERB can go up to 40 km/h when looking for a suitable parking space with the optional Park Assist on. Once the sensors find a space large enough (i.e. length of the car + 80 cm), the system lends a hand with the parking manoeuvres.
Exiting a tight space is now easier, too. In this mode, the optional Park Assist manoeuvres the SUPERB back and forth until it can exit a row of parked cars.
When reverse gear is engaged, the camera in the tailgate is activated and the image is shown on the infotainment system display. Dynamic guide lines laid over the image show the direction in which the vehicle would go with the position of the steering wheel or indicate when it should be turned.
When reversing out of parking bays, the optional Rear Traffic Alert recognises vehicles approaching from the sides. An acoustic signal warns of an impending collision. The “critical side” is shown first in yellow and then in red on the infotainment display. The brakes are applied automatically if necessary.
The new surround parking sensors complement the Park Assist perfectly. The parking sensors assist the driver with parking and work in conjunction with all of the infotainment systems available for the SUPERB.
