Active Return

Active return is a convenience and safety-enhancing function of Volkswagen’s electromechanical power steering. The positive centring and the steering torque which results from this, even at the smallest steering angles, offer drivers an unprecedented standard of steering precision. Active return makes for more comfortable steering and a greater feeling of safety as fewer corrections have to be made to the steering.
