2018 VW Tiguan Crash Test & Rating – Video
The Volkswagen Tiguan was redesigned for the 2018 model year. It is larger and heavier than the earlier design and therefore is now classified as a midsize SUV. The earlier design remains in production for 2018 and is called the Tiguan Limited. The ratings on this page do not apply to the Tiguan Limited.
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 4 cm at the lower hinge pillar, footrest, and left portion of the toepan. Upper interior intrusion measured 3 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.
