New Tiguan scores five starts at the Euro NCAP tests​

The new SUV was awarded with the five stars Euro NCAP for its occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and driver assistance systems. Let’s not forget about its first-class package of safety features, including optimised vehicle body structure, a highly effective safety belt, seat and airbag combination and innovative driver assistance systems.

This year’s crash test conditions were made a lot harder. In the extensive testing for adults’ safety, the new model reached an excellent number of 96 per cent of the maximum rating. The test carried the following procedure:

  • Frontal crash into an aluminium barrier at 64 km/h and 40 per cent overlap
  • Frontal crash at 50 km/h into a rigid barrier with 100% overlap
  • Side impact at 50 km/h into the vehicle side structure
  • Side pole impact at 32 km/h
  • Protection against whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision
  • Automatic emergency braking to avoid collisions with vehicle or pedestrians

The vehicle also scored 84 per cent for the child safety. Child dummies were used in the crash test for the first time ever. In case of a frontal or side impact, the children will be very well protected thanks to the ISOFIX and Top Tether child seat anchors and safety belt tensioners on the second row of seats. Pedestrian protection scored 72 per cent, which reduces the risk of injury to passers-by while the area of safety assistance scored 69 per cent thanks to its standard ESC, seatbelt fastening reminder function in the back, Front Assist emergency braking system and the Lane Assist function that helps drivers to stay in lane.

Other safety features include: airbags for the driver and front-seat passenger and a head airbag system for the rear passengers, including side airbags; seatbelt alerts for every seat; Electronic Stability Control including ABS with brake assistant, the Post-Collision Braking system and a tyre pressure indicator.
