For the first time, there is a reversing camera in addition to the rear parking system. The front ultrasonic sensors of the system recognise objects to the front, with a park assist system able to steer parallel and horizontally into parking spaces. With the new version of the assistant, the A1 Sportback also parks forward into perpendicular parking spaces, maneuvering multiple times if necessary. The system also exits parallel parking spaces. Packed with driver aids, they keep the compact car at the right distance from the car ahead, maintain the lane, recognise critical situations involving other vehicles, crossing pedestrians or cyclists ahead of the vehicle, even when visibility is poor such as in fog.
