If the ID.7 Tourer GTX is stationary, Exit Warning when opening doors warns of any traffic approaching from behind. In extreme cases, Exit Warning can stop the doors from opening for a while. To quickly and appropriately warn of, for example, collisions, traffic jams or work on the route, the ID.7 Tourer GTX use of Car2X. This gives the car information from other cars on the route as well as the infrastructure. By default, each ID.7 features Tourer GTX over Emergency Brake, Front Assist and Dynamic Road Sign display.
