Volkswagen Tiguan: IIHS Top Safety Pick Three Years Running

March 12th, 2020 by

How safe is your Volkswagen Tiguan?

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Volkswagen Tiguan is very safe. In fact, it just earned the Top Safety Pick award for the third consecutive year. The Tiguan earned this award by receiving “good” marks for crashworthiness and a “superior” rating for front crash prevention. This was achieved by testing with a Tiguan equipped with LED headlamps and Adaptive Front-Light System with dynamic cornering headlights.

To qualify for an award from the IIHS, vehicles must have “good” ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations. They must also have good or acceptable headlights and available front crash prevention that earns advanced or superior ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

The 2020 Tiguan earns “good” in the six crashworthiness evaluations and a “superior” mark for the Front Assist System—now standard on all Tiguan models. This feature includes the Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, which help warn drivers of potential frontal collisions with vehicles and pedestrians. In some cases, the system will provide automatic braking assistance.

These features together are what make the Tiguan one of the safest vehicles available at Bud Brown Volkswagen. Traffic is already tough in the Kansas City area. We want you to be prepared when things go wrong on our highways and streets.
