    Tiguan gets Top Safety Scores with IIHS

    This isn't news to some of you, but as a new Tiguan 2010 owner, I was absolutely inspired when I read this and saw the video of the destructive testing on the Tig. JSYK

    There's also a new test for crush impact as well that shows the Tig as best in class again. The Kia Sportage blew all its windows and crushed to the back of the seats where the Tig barely deformed at all, retained all its windows and was virtually unchanged looking inside.

    Thanks, NZ! I found the Roof Test you describe:

    15,000 lbs of weight on the roof, and the Tiguan only deformed by 2". Amazing!


    + YouTube Video

    Here are some other crush test photos I found. Again, this is old news to many of you, but is dandy news for some of us new to the VW Tiguan!

    It held up so well that you could practicly drive home after the accident. My friend drives one of those Kia's, scary thought to get in an accident in one.

    Interesting. Sounds really good. My 2013 Tig has a panoramic sun roof; does the crush test include a sunroof?
