Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot. Optional Light Assist on the 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 automatically switches off high beams headlights when another vehicle is nearby.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
