New Tiguan Awarded 5 Stars in Euro NCAP Safety Assessment

The new Tiguan has been awarded the highest rating of five stars for safety in the Euro NCAP assessment, scoring particularly well in the category of child occupant protection, making the third generation of the best-selling model one of the safest vehicles in its class.

The Euro NCAP is a renowned European consumer protection programme that has created a five-star safety rating system to help consumers, their families, and businesses easily compare vehicles and identify the safest choice for their needs. The safety rating is determined by a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests simulate critical real-life accident scenarios that could lead to injuries or fatalities among car passengers and other road users.

The Volkswagen model was tested by Euro NCAP in the Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection, Vulnerable Road Users and Safety Assist categories. The 5-star rating achieved by the new Tiguan shows an excellent overall rating for impact protection and good equipment with comprehensive practical accident prevention technology

Starting in 2023, the Euro NCAP tests have become more thorough and rigorous. One of the new criteria is the ability to detect children left in the car, a feature the new Tiguan generation has. The new Tiguan also comes with side airbags for the outer rear seats, enhancing protection for passengers in the back. For families, the standard exit warning system is particularly handy, alerting you with sounds and visuals if someone tries to open a door when a bicycle, e-scooter, motorbike, or other road user are approaching from behind.
