Let’s dive into a few details about the specific features of the Volkswagen Tiguan so that drivers of Mission and Olathe understand why this vehicle earned this sought-after title.

2018 VW Tiguan: Your Safety Shield

From top to bottom, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comes prepared to insulate you against any potential threat you encounter on the highway.

That’s because this SUV features a robust safety cage that keeps the driver and passengers guarded against crashes. In addition, front and rear crumple zones soak up the force caused by an accident to prevent whiplash and other harmful injuries.

To help you avoid impacts altogether, this automobile arms you with a seven stability-enhancing system that includes a collection of balance-boosting features, such as:

  • Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Anti-Slip Regulation
  • Electronic Differential Lock and more

With any of these innovative tools, your vehicle will automatically adjust its functionalities to keep you sturdy during rough weather or slippery conditions. That way, you’ll always know that your ride is working hard to provide you with the surest footing.

In the event that you are involved in an accident, your VW Tiguan will help you get your family to safety with its Intelligent Crash Response System. Thanks to this device, your car will turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and illuminate the hazard lights when it senses that the air bags have deployed.
