One of the technological advances featured on Evoq is Night Vision, which uses thermal-imaging technology to help a driver detect potentially dangerous situations well beyond the range of the car's headlamps. The infrared sensor is mounted in the front valence panel, with the image projected on the EyeCueT head-up display that appears to be over the front edge of the car's hood, in the driver's peripheral vision.

At the center of the console, two flat-panel screens display images captured by the rear-vision cameras. Mounted in the doors of Evoq's exterior, the cameras pop up and take the place of rearview mirrors when the ignition is activated, and retreat into the doors for safety and to prevent theft when the ignition is off. The side-by-side screens on the console give a panoramic view of the scene behind the car.

The Forewarn Back-up Aid rear obstacle detection system uses three sensors in the back bumper, one radar and two ultrasonic, to detect when Evoq is nearing an object as the driver backs up. When an obstacle is detected, even if it's unseen, the system's electronic control module alerts the driver by appropriately illuminating three banks of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on the instrument panel to indicate the closeness of the sensed object.
