VW Tiguan Safety Ratings 

What tells you more about a vehicle's safety than ratings from a reputable organization? The Volkswagen Tiguan, like every other vehicle on the market in the nation, goes through thorough assessments before it can hit the streets to ensure optimal safety. One of the organizations that tested this set of wheels is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Though the assessments for 2021 have not completed yet, we can expect to see similar results to the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan model. When conducting their tests for that year, the IIHS gave the Volkswagen Tiguan an overall score of Good, the highest rating possible. This includes areas of testing like crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and more. 

In fact, this high rating earned Volkswagen the 2020 Top Safety Pick award when the model is equipped with specific headlights. What makes this sporty SUV so safe and reliable? Let's take a look at the VW Tiguan safety features and find out. 

Volkswagen Tiguan Standard Safety 

To ensure all your commutes are well protected, the 2021 VW Tiguan comes outfitted with a suite of passive safety systems standard on every trim level. These features help keep you and your passengers safe without any work on your end. 

Some of these standard features include: 

  • Driver and front passenger, front and side thorax airbag supplemental restraint system
  • Side Curtain Protection® Head Airbags in the Front and Rear
  • Height-Adjustable Front Safety Belts with Pretensioners and Load Limiters
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child seat anchor points
  • Safety Cage with Front and Rear Crumple Zones 

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan: Advanced Safety Features

You can feel comfortable knowing that the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan also comes standard with a wide variety of active advanced safety features. These step in when you need some extra help on the roads and work together to keep you and your passengers secure behind the wheel. They include:

  • Electronic Stability Control: This technology-based safety system improves vehicle stability by reducing the loss of traction.
  • Anti-Slip Regulation: Working with the vehicle's braking system, this helps the vehicle slow down during excessive acceleration despite the road conditions.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System: Works to prevent wheels from locking up during braking.
  • Electronic Differential Lock: Helps to avoid slipping on roads by applying brakes to wheels when wheelspin is detected by the Anti-Lock Braking System sensors.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: This helps you keep on top of tires with low air pressure. When that's detected in one or more of your tires, you'll receive a notification letting you know it's time to fill up.  
  • Rear View Camera System: With help from a wide lens, you can see objects behind you when you're in reverse. This is incredibly helpful when parking your VW Tiguan as well!
  • Intelligent Crash Response System: If you find yourself in a collision where your airbags are deployed, this system will turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and turn on your hazard lights automatically. 

Driving Assistance Features

Aside from active and passive safety features, the 2021 VW Tiguan also comes standard with an extensive range of advanced driving assistance features. These intuitive systems help to monitor the activity around your vehicle and assists your response in order to avoid an emergency situation. 

Some of the driving assistance features you can find include:

  • Blind Spot Monitor: Also called Side Assist, this system alerts you when there's a vehicle in your blind spots while signaling to change lanes. This feature is ideal for someone who does a lot of highway driving. 
  • Front Assist: Made up of Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, and Pedestrian Monitoring, Front Assist works to help prevent a forward collision by keeping track of the activity in front of your vehicle. If you can't react in time, it'll automatically apply the brakes to avoid or lessen the impact. 
  • Rear Traffic Alert: While you're backing up, sensors behind the vehicle will detect others crossing your path. This allows you to stop the VW Tiguan for safer reversing. 

That's not where the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan stops, though. You can also opt for a plethora of available safety-enhancing driver-assistive technologies. These provide you with further security while on the go, boosting your driving confidence like never before: 

  • Adaptive Cruise Control 
  • Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist)  
  • Overhead View Camera with Area View 
  • High Beam Control (Light Assist) 
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking 

You can also opt for the Volkswagen Car-Net® feature that has special safety features. Through an app on your phone, you can elevate your vehicle with VW Car-Net Safe and Secure. This includes anti-theft alerts, automatic crash notifications, emergency assistance, and so much more. 

Plus, with Family Guardian Alerts, you can ensure your young drivers are also safe by setting custom boundaries, speed limits, and a curfew.
