Self Study Program 494 – Park assist steering 2.0

VAG SSP 494. This self-study programme presents the main new features of the new park assist steering  system compared with the earlier generation. The content covers the system components and the mode of operation.

The new park assist steering 2.0 is used in the 2nd generation Touran initially, followed by the Sharan 2011. It represents a considerable improvement over the already well established 1st generation park assist steering version 1.0, as well as the further developed 1.5 version.

With this new semi-automatic parking system, parking in bays perpendicular to the road and parking in even tighter parking spaces parallel to the road (kerbside parking) have been made possible. In  both instances, parking can be carried out in several stages.

As the first parking system of its kind, the 2nd generation park assist steering system features  active brake intervention to reduce any potential damage from parking. The system still supports exiting from parallel parking spaces as before.
