2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Safety Technologies

How do the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan safety features maintain your peace of mind while you’re making your Beverly Hills commute? The Tiguan goes beyond simple air bags and basic collision safety protocol. The 2017 iteration brings you a refreshed array of safety technologies designed to combat any obstacles on the road ahead.

Designed for Collision Safety

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Safety Cage Frame

On those busy Los Angeles highways and city streets, you might find yourself gripping your steering wheel a little harder than you intended as an unexpected vehicle whizzes by. In the event of a collision or traffic accident, you can count on these safety features:

  • Safety Cage: In the front and rear, engineers have supplied crumple zones to absorb crash force as the safety cage deflects energy away from the cabin.
  • High Strength Steel: Exterior body panels use a unique alloyed steel to boost the sturdiness of your Tiguan’s overall outer shell and maximize your safety during traffic collisions.
  • Side Curtain Protection: On either side of your cabin, you and your passengers are protected with full side curtain airbags that will deploy in the event of a collision.
  • Crash Optimization: Both the front and pedal controls are crash optimized to better protect you and your passengers in the event of a collision.
  • Safety Belt ELR: If you are involved in an accident or sudden stop, all your Tiguan seat belts features Emergency Locking Retractors to keep everyone safely in place. 
  • Intelligent Crash Response System: The ICRS system helps you react if you aren’t able to. It can turn off the fuel pump, activate hazard lights, and unlock your doors.

Stability Control Systems

Do you like to take those West Hollywood corners a little fast? Even if you like to drive like you’re in a sports car, these comprehensive stability control systems work to keep all four wheels safety in contact with the road:

  • Brake Disc Drying: This system helps you maximize your stopping power and it wipes the water off your brakes. It’s activated as soon as you engage your windshield wipers.
  • Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution: In hard braking situations, this system aids in maintaining the right amount of stopping power and adjusts the power on each wheel.
  • Electronic Stability Control: This system serves to adjust the amount of throttle on your wheels and it can serve corrective forces when needed to ensure all four wheels stay on the ground.
  • Engine Braking Assist: When you need a little extra stopping power, the braking assist is there to cover the gap. It adds that extra bit of force you want in those sudden braking situations.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System: If you do find yourself slamming on the brakes, you can depend on their smooth performance no matter how much force you need to get to a full stop.
  • Anti-Slip Regulation: When the road conditions are slippery, this system will ensure your vehicle stays stable and doesn’t succumb to a slick roadway or heavy rain fall.

Holistic Safety Measures

To make sure every situation is accounted for, the Tiguan offers extra safety features that will alert you to hazardous conditions and help you keep your passengers safe:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Maintain ideal air pressure in your tires with this system. It constantly monitors air pressure and lets you know when it’s time to fill up your tires.
  • Review Camera System: Shift into reverse and get a live feed of everything behind you. See those toys and trashcans before you bump into them.
  • Trailer Roll Stability Program: Are you planning to haul a trailer? This program serves to keep your trailer stable around corners, when you’re braking and in harsh road conditions.
  • Adaptive Front Lighting System: As you round the corner ahead, this light system will swivel to match your steering and give you a better view of the road ahead.
  • LATCH: Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children are seat anchors that are located in your cabin seating. They allow you to secure car seats when you need to.
  • Passenger Occupant Detection: This advanced system detects when you have a passenger and ensures proper safety measures are deployed in the event of an accident.
