Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Volkswagen Tiguan has been awarded a 5 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

This vehicle scored 26.09 out of 42 points (Acceptable). The Tiguan has an 'active' bonnet. The system was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. Test results were almost exclusively good or adequate. The bumper showed good results at all test locations and scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. However, the pelvis area was not well protected with poor results at almost all test locations. Autonomous emergency braking (Vulnerable Road User) is available in Europe and was awarded points by Euro NCAP but this system is not available in Australasia. (Tested by Euro NCAP v8.2)
