Volkswagen will begin offering an infotainment system in the United States starting this year. The system, named Car-Net, is similar to Ford Motor Co.’s Sync and MyFord Touch software, Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer at Volkswagen of America, told Automotive News. most probably it will bemade available on all models sold in the US.

Thanks to Car-Net, Volkswagen vehicles will benefit from features like roadside assistance, that many of its rivals have offered American drivers for years.

It promises benefits but also risks, because adding the hardware and software to run these features has proved to be a challenge for Ford. Even so, Volkswagen said they will learn from others mistakes.

Other Volkswagen AG brands, such as Audi, have introduced infotainment systems. The first VW-branded vehicle to get one was the seventh-generation Golf, which debuted in Europe in November and is scheduled to arrive in the United States in 2014.
