2015 Volkswagen Tiguan Safety Features

 

Some of the most innovative safety features of the 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan are so advanced that you’d hardly ever know they were there. But at The Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore in Irvine, we want our customers in Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport Beach to know exactly what makes up the 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan safety features.

2015 VW Tiguan Active Safety Features

The active safety features are your first line of defense for avoiding accidents, and the brakes may be the most important part. The Tiguan features a number of advanced braking features, such as Hydraulic Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution to ensure that each wheel gets an optimized amount of braking force.

Meanwhile, features such as the Trailer Roll Stability program, Electronic Stability Control, and an electronic differential lock help to keep you in control and on the steered path. The Trailer Toll Stability program is especially useful when towing, helping to counteract and limit the sway of your trailer.

Volkswagen Tiguan Passive Safety Features

The passive safety features of the 2015 Tiguan start with the body itself. This strong and rigid body shell is laser seam welded and features an energy-absorbing front end along with heat-formed steel center B-pillars for superior crash optimization.

Furthering protection are front and side-thorax airbags in the front row, as well as side curtain protection head airbags for all rows. When the airbags deploy, they activate the Volkswagen Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and turns on the hazard lights.

More Volkswagen Tiguan Safety Features

A tire pressure monitoring system might not seem like much of a safety feature to most people, but it is. By helping you actively monitor the pressure of your tires, you can make sure that each is inflated to the proper amount, which improves traction and stability among other factors.

There’s a similar feeling about child safety locks on the rear doors. While those who don’t have young children might find the accidental engagement of this feature to be a minor frustration, parents appreciate the kind of protection and peace of mind that child safety locks provide, especially on long rides when children become antsy. 

The last safety feature we’ll look at is the rearview camera. This simple yet incredibly useful feature provides drivers with a crisp, clear view of what’s behind them. Along with helpful guide lines on the screen, you’ll be able to see obstacles that might be in your path, making parking and backing up safer and easier.
