2015 Volkswagen Eos Safety Features
At The Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore in Irvine, we know how important safety is to our customers. In this review of the 2015 Volkswagen Eos safety features, drivers from Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport Beach can learn about all of the advanced and innovative systems working to make driving an Eos safer than ever.
Active Safety in the 2015 VW Eos
Active safety features are the various systems and technologies that help you avoid getting into an accident. In total, the 2015 Volkswagen Eos is equipped with 11 of these kind of safety features.
It’s probably not surprising to learn that many of the safety features have to do with braking power, since the brakes are one of the most important components of your vehicle. The Hydraulic Brake Assist and Engine Braking Assist systems both help to improve braking performance as well as Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution and the anti-lock braking system.
To help you maintain control, the VW Eos is also equipped with Electronic Stability Control, Anti-Slip Regulation, and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The TPMS is particularly helpful because maintaining the proper inflation of each tire is one of the best ways to optimize traction and road grip.
Volkswagen Eos Passive Safety Features
Anti-intrusion side door beams and a reinforced safety cage construction are at the core of passive safety in the Volkswagen Eos. The front end and the pedals have been crash optimized to help reduce the risk of passenger injury, along with an advanced airbag system.
The Passenger Occupant Detection and Automatic Rollover Support systems monitor several factors both before and during a collision so that additional safety features can respond accordingly for maximum protection.
Rounding out the passive safety features in the 2015 Eos are three-point safety belts for all seats and front safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters. The pre-tensioners lock the belt in place to brace the occupant in the correct seating position for maximum protection from collision forces. The load limiters can alleviate some tension to avoid causing any undue pressure.
Additional Eos Safety Features
The Intelligent Crash Response System is a multiple action safety system that activates as soon as the airbags are deployed. Immediately, the system will unlock the doors and turn off the fuel pump. This helps to prevent fuel from leaking and prevents fire hazards. Meanwhile, the hazard lights will also be turned on, making your vehicle more visible to other motorists and emergency personnel.
The Volkswagen Eos also features an anti-theft alarm system with immobilizer theft-deterrent system that can help keep your vehicle and your personal belongings safe and secure.
