The entire VW lineup sees new features and tech.

The 2022 Volkswagen lineup will be tech-forward and will have more standard features than before. That’s the message the automaker sent with its most recent announcement, which gives us a solid look at the company’s 2022 catalog and the standard features that will be distributed across it.

Most new VW models feature the brand’s Digital Cockpit system, which is a digital gauge cluster that can display maps, audio and entertainment features, and more. The Atlas, Atlas Cross Sport, Golf GTI, and Golf R all come with the feature.

VW’s IQ.DRIVE system is also widely standard in the automaker’s catalog. The technology includes a hands-on semi-automated driving function with lane centering and capacitive feedback on the steering wheel. Volkswagen says that in town, the system can help alert drivers to upcoming obstacles or to sudden changes in traffic activity ahead. IQ.DRIVE uses front and rear radar, a front camera, and several ultrasound sensors.

Several advanced driver assist features are also included in the IQ.DRIVE system. They include forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian monitoring, active blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane keep assist, and a semi-automated vehicle assistance system.

Beyond tech updates for the new model year, Volkswagen has made changes to several other models’ styling and powertrains. The Jetta, Jetta GLI, and Tiguan received fresh styling for the new model year, while the Arteon sedan now comes with a more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
