Things to find in 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport…
Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport comes with great features to make owners interact and drive their vehicle better in 2020.
While current VW models offer adaptive cruise control, the soon to be revealed Atlas Cross Sport will offer Traffic-Jam Assist, which centers the car in a lane below 37 mph.
Above that speed, the lane-keeping assist simply keeps the vehicle from drifting over the lines. Also new is Dynamic Road Sign Display, which uses a camera to read speed limits, school zones, and other signs and display them on the dash.
None of this is revolutionary tech, but it is the first time it’s available on a Volkswagen in the U.S. market.
Volkswagen is also updating its Car-Net remote vehicle management app for the Atlas Cross Sport and for most 2020 VWs, with only the Passat waiting for later in the model year to receive it.
The Car-Net app lets owners to lock and unlock the doors, honk the horn, flash the lights, view their car’s location, and start their car.
The app also provides maintenance alerts, vehicle-health reports, and parking information and can send alerts if the vehicle leaves preset boundaries or exceeds a set speed, so owners can sit at home and monitor what the kids are up to.
VW owners can also use Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri assistants to execute remote vehicle commands. Car-Net remote services are free for the first five years of ownership.
On top of the remote access, 2020 Volkswagens will offer remote emergency assistance and wireless hotspot capability.
The Safe & Secure package provides automatic crash notifications, anti-theft alerts, stolen vehicle location, information assistance, and emergency support, and it costs $99 a year.
These technological advancements bring Volkswagen up to par with many other manufacturers, but that doesn’t mean they’re not useful. It is so nice see the new Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport finally revealed.
