The Volkswagen Tiguan has been declared “Best in Class” by putting safety first.
The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) have published their report into the safest vehicles of 2016, with the Volkswagen Tiguan coming up trumps in the “Small Off-Roader” segment.
The top-notch safety package in the Tiguan is undeniably a class leader, with the full five star rating awarded to the model in June. After NCAP test standards were heightened this year, the Tiguan refused to stumble; inclusion of new child-size dummies in the testing equipment allowed the vehicle to show off its exceptional protection for both adults and children, with ISOFIX, Top Tether and safety belt tensioners offering unrivalled security in the event of a crash.
The Tiguan doesn’t just take care of its passengers; pedestrians are also on its radar, with the inclusion of an ‘active bonnet’ feature, reducing critical head injuries to those on foot during an accident.
Other commended features in the Tiguan’s line-up include the traffic monitoring system “Front Assist”, as well as City Emergency Braking. All in all, Volkswagen are yet again proving themselves a frontrunner in the safety stakes; just last year, the Tiguan was also awarded the prestigious Euro NCAP “Best in Class”.
