VW’s 2019 Tiguan Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Rating

Oct. 28, 2019:  VWoA announced the 2019 Tiguan gets the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top safety rating.  Besides good scores in six crashworthiness evaluations, the Tiguan with optional LED headlights earned a good rating.

VW’s available forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking and pedestrian monitoring (Front Assist) earned a superior rating.

In order to achieve the IIHS Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must perform well in crash tests, offer effective non-dazzle automatic high beams and provide useful autonomous emergency braking.  VW’s Tiguan with Front Assist scored superior for the latter.

VW’s 2019 GTI also earned a Top Safety Pick earlier this year.
