VW equips all new cars with ESC and DAB as standard
The move means that ESC, which was previously fitted to almost every model in the range and optional on others, now comes included as standard in every 2015 model-year Volkswagen.
As well as enhanced safety, there's now enhanced entertainment in every Volkswagen, too, thanks to standard-fit DAB digital radio tuners across the range. The carmaker says it was one of the first manufacturers to make DAB standard on many models in the UK, having added it from May 2012 in every 2013 model-year vehicle from Polo to Toured. It was added to the Phaeton later in 2012, and introduced as an option on the up! in 2013.
The majority of models also come with Bluetooth audio connectivity, as well as iPod, USB or aux-in connections.
