Lane Keeping System
Available Lane Assist can detect if you’ve drifted out of your lane without turning on your turn signal.** It can even keep your sedan in between detected lane markings.** When you do put on your turn signal, the Blind Spot Monitor will warn you when a car is in your blind spot so you know when to switch lanes.*

While some brands name their cars boring combinations of letters and numbers, Volkswagen puts a lot of thought into choosing the right names for its models. Whether it is a classic model like the Beetle or the new Atlas SUV, here is some history behind how these names were chosen.
The Volkswagen Atlas is named after a legendary Greek titan whose job it was to hold up the sky. The Atlas is a strong seven-passenger SUV, making it a perfect choice for this larger-than-life name.
If the name Jetta makes you think of motion, then it is doing its job. The Jetta was based on the German word for jet stream and follows a wind motif in its design.
Another VW SUV is the Tiguan. This model’s name was chosen with the help of the German people through a magazine poll. From the choices Namib, Rockton, Samun, Nanuk, and Tiguan, the people chose Tiguan, which is a portmanteau of tiger and iguana — fierce and exotic.
Perhaps the most iconic Volkswagen of all is the Beetle. Its official name was the Volkswagen Type 1, but it was quickly dubbed the Käfer, the German word for Beetle, due to its round shape. This became its official model name and what the world calls it 70 years later.
