Waze, VW partner to highlight 'Superdrives' enthusiast roads

The feature is initially available only in the UK.

Volkswagen has partnered with Waze to help GTI owners navigate to the finest driving roads in the UK.

Known as GTI Superdrives, the new feature provides directions to 75 of the UK's best roads for driving enthusiasts. The roads are said to be defined by Waze's crowd-sourced community and Map Editors.

"GTI Superdrive routes are scenic, yet close enough to points of interest; have the right driving conditions - including engaging corners; low amounts of traffic; and low incident reports," VW says.

If drivers are within 12 miles of a GTI Superdrive road, they will see a GTI badge that presents directions to the road. If the Waze user is not driving, they can find out more about the route and view its ranking on the list of top roads.

The GTI Superdrives feature is not limited to GTI drivers, though it is available only in the UK for now.
