There is a lot to look forward to with the 2021 Volkswagen models.

Volkswagen recently announced its changes for the 2021 model year. Those changes include having most models equipped with the new MIB3 infotainment system, new driver-assistance features, Travel Assist and Emergency Assist, which will be offered on VW models in the U.S. for the first time.

The new MIB3 infotainment system features wireless App-Connect with multi-phone pairing that can easily be switched between devices, enhanced voice recognition, and a redesigned navigation system with simplified map designs, quick access to frequently-visited locations and advanced route management.

According to Automotive World, MIB3 also delivers SiriusXM's newest and most advanced audio entertainment platform-SiriusXM with 360L. Available by subscription (three-month trial included), SiriusXM with 360L combines satellite and streaming content delivery into a single, cohesive in-vehicle entertainment experience, upgrading the way the subscriber interacts with the service by delivering more channels, more than 10,000 hours of on-demand content and smart “For You” content recommendations for better personalization.


The Travel Assist feature enables partially-automated hands-on driving from 0 to 95 mph. Travel Assist can be activated by a button on the steering wheel, and used the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keeping Assist (Lane Assist) features to help steer as well as accelerate and brake the vehicle in response to traffic and lane markings. 

Another new feature on 2021 Volkswagen models is Emergency Assist, which can bring the vehicle to a stop of the driver is unable to do so. Emergency Assist constantly monitors the driver's attentiveness by checking the input of their hands on the steering wheel. If the system does not detect driver input, a series of warnings (visual, audible, and brake jerks) will occur. You can find this feature currently on the 2021 Atlas
