Fabia's Smart Tech Helps Learner Drivers

As if the list of benefits for the new Fabia wasn’t long enough, it's now being talked about as the car of choice for tech savvy potential learner drivers. 

The latest model has a comprehensive range of driver assistance features which not only make the car easier to manage and drive, but also help to instil confidence into any wide eyed “noobie” starting a journey on today’s busy and often stressful road system.

With more advanced technologies introduced on the latest generation model, FABIA can help learner drivers avoid simple test failures, while also reducing risks on the road for more seasoned drivers. This new fourth generation FABIA has Travel Assist for the first time, which combines Adaptive Cruise Control, which adjusts the speed of the car to that of vehicles ahead, and Lane Assist which effectively steers the car for you provided there are white lines on the road. 

Also, ninety percent of testees fail on rolling backwards on a hill or failing to recognise traffic signs so the added Hill Hold Control and Traffic Sign Recognition will probably ensure that most learners get a 100% pass rate. 

Whilst it's unlikely that parking assist will be allowed for some time there is no doubt that all the above technology will do away with the requirement for three or four test attempts in the future. And with driverless cars not too far in the distance, it's not out of the question to imagine a world without driving tests altogether.  Now wouldn't that be a thing!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
