Optical deception by the camera:

The reverse assist system camera only supplies two-dimensional images. Due to the lack of depth of field on the screen, potholes and dips in the ground, protruding parts on another vehicle or protruding objects on the ground may be difficult or impossible to see on the image.

Objects or other vehicles may appear closer or further away on the screen than they actually are.

Cleaning the camera lens

Keep the camera lens clean and free of ice and snow:

NOTICE

It is not possible to open the tailgate if the Volkswagen badge is folded out.

Volkswagen recommends that you practise parking with the reverse assist system in a traffic-calmed area or car park with good vision and weather conditions, so you can familiarise yourself with the system and the orientation lines in a safer environment.

The reverse assist system cannot be switched on if the tailgate is open.
