Euro NCAP 2016: Tiguan is ‘Best in Class’

According to the European New Car Assessment Programme Euro NCAP, the ‘Best in Class’ title has gone to the Volkswagen Tiguan in the ‘Small off-roader’ segment, writes Trish Whelan.

This successor to the best-seller is among the safest cars in its segment.

In June, the new Tiguan  passed the demanding Euro NCAP crash test series and received the maximum five star rating. With the NCAP test standards tighten again in 2016, this year, new child size dummies formed part of the testing equipment for the first time. The new Tiguan achieved an excellent result in occupant protection for adults and children. With standard ISOFIX and Top Tether child seat anchors in combination with safety belt tensioners on the second row of seats, children and adults are very well protected in the event of any frontal or side impact.

On pedestrian protection, factors included the ‘active bonnet’ feature designed to help reduce dangerous head injuries in the event of a collision. The Tiguan also impressed with its pedestrian monitoring and ambient traffic monitoring system ‘Front Assist’ with City Emergency Braking which at the very least reduces the severity of an accident and in the best case even prevents the accident altogether. The Tiguan also has security systems such as Electronic Stability Control and ‘lane Assist’.
