It's been almost a year since the Volkswagen Tiguan was introduced to North America. The vehicle was VW's first compact SUV and we had the opportunity to drive it vigorously through the mountainous roads of Colorado (et 9/08). It was safe to say, this SUV was a GTI in a larger package with incredible handling and worthy power from its 2.0T. But today VW announced that it's also one of the safest cars out there.

The '09 Tiguan has earned a 5-star crash test rating from the government's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). NCAP is part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is affiliated with the U.S. Department of Transportation, and they have provided people with vehicle safety information since 1978.

NCAP has primarily provided front and side crash test ratings, and more recently added a rollover rating. The rating results are rated from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best."Volkswagen is thrilled that our Tiguan has earned the highest crash test rating, 5-star, by the government -- providing further validation that Volkswagen produces some of the safest vehicles in the industry," said Mark Barnes, COO, VWoA. "Our vehicles have numerous safety technologies that work to help prevent accidents whenever possible, and help protect our occupants when an accident is unavoidable."
