The Tiguan works to keep you safe every second with its available active safety features. Some of its available active safety features include a forward-collision warning system with autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, rear traffic alert, pedestrian monitoring, overhead view camera, blind spot monitor, and even adaptive cruise control.

For those that don’t know, adaptive cruise control automatically adjusts your cruise control speed to that of traffic. When the traffic clears, your car speeds back up to your set speed. It’s great for helping you get through rush hour on the highway.

Stability control has been one of the best improvements to modern vehicles. These advanced computer systems just make your car smarter. This is why the Tiguan employs seven different stability enhancement systems, and we are going to look at a few of the most impressive ones.

Say you see a piece of debris in the road. You go to swerve to avoid it. A normal car would rely on nothing but the steering of the front wheels to accomplish this task. However, with electronic brake-force distribution, your Tiguan will actually apply braking force to specific wheels to help maintain stability and affect the swerve.

Other systems like electronic stability control and even traction control fight to keep your car safe and stable as it travels down the road. Engine brake assist, anti-lock brakes, and an electronic differential lock are all there too.
