In 2020, Volkswagen has introduced some minor changes to the Car-Net mobile app. Now, select 2021 models receive a completely revised MIB3.

The German automaker is making more changes to its MIB3 infotainment system, including wireless App-Connect, improved voice recognition, USB-C charging, updated navigation, and SiriusXM with 360L streaming.

Travel Assist and Emergency Assist have also been added for the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport. Travel Assist allows to partially automate practical driving at speeds from 0 to 150 km / h using adaptive cruise and assistance systems. Emergency Assist monitors the driver to make sure they are paying attention to the road and can provide alerts such as visual alerts, sound or sudden brakes to wake them up when needed. The assistant can also stop the car if the driver does not respond.

The Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport models in SE trim levels and above will be updated to receive the MIB3 infotainment system, while the SEL and SEL Premium trim levels will receive Travel and Emergency Assist. The updated Golf, with the exception of the Golf GTI, will not receive a new multimedia system.

Like its sportier version, the Jetta GLI, the Jetta, the Golf sedan counterpart, will receive the MIB3 system. In addition, a 6-way driver’s seat is added to the Jetta SE and SEL trim levels, while the GLI Autobahn gets adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and high-beam control.

MIB3 is not listed as a new option for the 2021 Passat either, but as a consolation prize, the Passat models rely on adaptive cruise control. The 2021 Tiguan will get the MIB3 system along with adaptive cruise control on all trim levels until 2022 facelift.
