Additional fees (for example, roaming charges) may arise when receiving data from the Internet, depending on your particular mobile phone rate and especially when using the service abroad.

Paid-for products can be purchased in the In-Car Shop and the We Connect web shop with the payment methods that are currently available and can be viewed there.

1) App-Connect includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink technologies. To avoid distraction, only certified apps can be started during the journey. Please also note that some apps are not offered for all three technologies, that the provider may change the content of functions or cease to offer the functions during the contract period, and that the availability of these technologies may differ in certain countries. Information on the compatibility of smartphones can be found for Apple CarPlay at https://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/, for Android Auto at https://www.android.com/intl/en_uk/auto/ and for MirrorLink at https://mirrorlink.com/. Apple CarPlay is a trademark of Apple Inc. Android Auto is a trademark of Google LLC. MirrorLink is a registered trademark of Car Connectivity Consortium LCC.
2) Use of expanded Online Voice Control functions requires a Volkswagen ID and active We Connect licence. Depending on the vehicle model and its equipment, you can use your voice to control lots of vehicle features and online services with ease.
3) (Online) Voice Control is currently available for the following languages: German, English (GB and US), French, Spanish, Czech and Italian.
4) Voice control of navigation functions with “Ready 2 Discover” is only possible following activation of the upgrade: “Navigation”.
5) ACC operates in a speed range between 30 km/h (20 mph) and 210 km/h (130 mph). This speed range may vary depending on the market. You can override ACC control at any time. When you brake, the control system is stopped. When you accelerate, it is interrupted for the duration of acceleration and then continues. If a trailer is attached to your vehicle, ACC offers less dynamic control. If the automatic deceleration triggered by ACC is not sufficient, the ACC will display a message in the instrument cluster prompting you to brake. The red warning lamp will light up and an audible warning will sound. ACC’s smart technology cannot override the laws of physics and operates exclusively within the system’s limitations. Drivers must never be led by the additional convenience into taking safety risks.

The specified consumption and emissions values were obtained using the legally required measurement procedure. Since 1 September 2017, certain new vehicles have been type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), a new, more realistic testing process for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. The WLTP will gradually replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) from 1 September 2018. Due to the more realistic testing conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions values measured according to the WLTP are often higher than those measured under the NEDC. This may result in corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. Further information about the differences between the WLTP and NEDC is available at https://www.volkswagen.ie/en/WLTP.html. It is still mandatory to include NEDC values as part of communications. For new vehicles that have been type-approved according to the WLTP, NEDC values are derived based on WLTP values. The additional provision of WLTP values is voluntary until their application becomes mandatory. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are provided purely for comparison purposes between the various types of vehicle. Additional equipment and accessories (attachments, tyre format, etc.) could change relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. As well as weather and traffic conditions and personal driving style, these add-ons could also affect a vehicle’s fuel consumption, power consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance. Further information regarding official fuel consumption and the official, specific CO₂ emissions for new passenger vehicles can be found in the “Guidelines on fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars” which is available free of charge from all points of sale and DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de/co2). Efficiency classes evaluate vehicles based on CO2 emissions, taking into account empty vehicle weight. Vehicles which are in line with the average are classed as D. Vehicles better than the current average are graded A+++, A++, A+, A, B or C. Vehicles below average are classed E, F or G. The details here are based on the EC type-approval for the selected model and its standard equipment in accordance with Directive 2007/46/EC. The optional equipment you selected during configuration may mean that your configured model corresponds to a different approved type on account of your selected equipment than it would otherwise without the selected optional equipment. This means the details for your configured model may vary. The CO2 values stated are the values determined in the context of the vehicle’s type approval.
