Assisted driving up to 210 km/h.
Travel Assist. Volkswagen consolidates the systems it develops for assisted driving under the umbrella brand IQ.DRIVE. A central component of this is the driver assist system Travel Assist, now available for the first time in the Tiguan Allspace. Depending on the gearbox type, this system can take over steering, braking and acceleration of the vehicle at speeds starting from 0 km/h (with dual clutch gearbox) or 30 km/h (manual gearbox) up to 210 km/h. To do this, Travel Assist relies on familiar systems including Adaptive Cruise Control for longitudinal guidance, and Lane Assist (fitted as standard) for lateral guidance. The driver can activate the system using the Travel Assist button in the newly designed multifunction steering wheel. After doing so, the driver must keep their hands on the wheel. The Tiguan Allspace’s electronics monitor this using the new touch-sensitive surfaces on the steering wheel. The driver is always ultimately responsible for controlling the vehicle – they must always be ready to override the assist systems if necessary.
Predictive ACC. The new Tiguan Allspace is fitted with the current generation of Adaptive Cruise Control as standard. This assist system incorporates the signals from the front camera into its control mechanism, as well as GPS and map data in models with a navigation system. It also takes local speed limit information, town boundary signs, junctions and roundabouts into account in advance. The Autonomous Emergency Braking system can now react even more effectively to persons that are crossing the road in complex situations. The latest generation of the enhanced lane keeping system Lane Assist is now better able to detect lanes and natural lane boundaries such as grass edges even more accurately.
