STANDARD: DAB now permanent VW fixture
Volkswagen are making ESC and DAB digital radio standard equipment on all of their passenger car models in the UK.
ESC, previously fitted to almost every model in the range and optional on others, now comes included as standard in every 2015 model-year Volkswagen.
It detects critical situations at an early stage, applying the brakes to one or more wheels and reducing engine power if necessary, to stop skidding and help bring the car safely back under control.
Meanwhile, DAB gives customers a greater choice of radio stations, and will appear as standard in all new cars alongside FM radio reception too.
Most models also come with Bluetooth audio connectivity, as well as iPod, USB or aux-in connections.
The 2015 model-year range of Volkswagen models are available to order now.
