Come by Island Volkswagen near Staten Island, NY to compare the all-new 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan versus the 2017 Ford Escape. Not every collision brings a car to stop. That’s why the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan includes the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts. From Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution, which helps maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard-braking situation, to Electronic Stability Control, which can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most, your vehicle is equipped with a total of seven stability-enhancing systems. In the event of a collision that deploys the airbags, the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights. It helps react if you might not be able to. Front and rear crumple zones help absorb crash energy, while a rigid safety cage helps deflect it away from the driver and passengers. The Tiguan is also filled with amazing technologies such as the available 12.3″ display is a true breakthrough. Instead of the traditional instrument cluster, information can be displayed digitally in high resolution. The available Pedestrian Monitoring feature has a radar sensor to help alert you if a pedestrian is headed into the vehicle’s forward path. If the driver doesn’t respond adequately to the audible and visual warnings, the car can brake automatically with full force. The sensors on the available Blind Spot Monitor are able to help sense what you might miss. When you’re changing lanes, the Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can detect when another vehicle is in your blind spot. Within the limits of Lane Assist, it can then counter-steer to help keep you in your lane and in addition to the visual warning in the side mirrors, the steering wheel can vibrate.
