Over the next year, a number of models will introduce Trafficmaster's RDS-TMC traffic service on new factory-fitted navigation systems.
Customers ordering a new Volkswagen Phaeton, Touran or Touareg with the new system will be able to receive Trafficmaster traffic data with immediate effect, and the brand will extend this to other vehicles early next year.
Trafficmaster, who have a dedicated network of 7500 roadside sensors located on the UK's motorways and trunk roads, already supply RDS-TMC data to navigation systems for Volkswagen's sister brands, Bentley and Audi.
Michael O'Shea of Volkswagen said: "With the daily congestion on Britain's roads, live traffic information is ever more important for in-car navigation systems.
"We believe that the Trafficmaster service is the best fit for us, to help our customers save time and money by avoiding the jams."
