The Tiguan features technical innovations including the new 4MOTION all-wheel drive and the electromechanical steering system developed in cooperation with the Group's own components plant in Brunswick. 4MOTION is a permanent four-wheel drive system, offering great grip on the roughest roads and in the worst weather. It constantly monitors driving conditions and reacts to the slightest wheel slip, delivering extra traction to the wheels with the most grip. All this happens through control units linked to the car's dynamic sensors, engine management system and gearbox. At the heart of the system is an inter-axle differential. The electromechanical system is a speed-sensitive, electrical power-assisted steering system which is only activated when needed and uses no hydraulic components. Compared to hydraulic power steering, cars fitted with electromechanical power steering benefit from lower fuel consumption and new convenience and safety functions.
