Which factors affect my Volkswagen Tiguan insurance rate?
There are many factors that impact your insurance premiums. These include:

- Annual mileage

How can I save on my Volkswagen Tiguan premiums?
We’ve devised these tips to help you save cash on your premiums:
- Pay annually rather than monthly. By paying annually, we’d have saved £73.93 a year, on average, in our scenario.
- Make yourself a secure investment. If you maintain a good credit rating and a clean history of no claims, you may just find yourself being rewarded by your provider with lower premiums.
- Be economical about your car usage. Whilst it is tempting to use your car for all your travelling needs, by limiting how much you use it, you could actually save on your premiums.
- Don’t just accept your renewal quote. The quote that you’re given when it’s time to renew isn’t always your best option, so make sure you look around and compare some quotes before you commit – and haggle!
- Install extra safety precautions. Providers don’t like to insure risks, so the safer and more secure you can make your car, the lower your premiums may become.
- Avoid driving convictions. Convictions of any kind will increase your premium rate, so try your best to avoid any.

How safe is Volkswagen Tiguan?
When tested by crash test experts at Euro NCAP in 2016, the Volkswagen Tiguan received a 5/5 safety rating. It scored an excellent 96% for its adult occupant safety, and 80% for its child occupant safety. Its safety features earned it a score of 68% for its safety assist functions.
The Volkswagen Tiguan comes with a lot of safety features as standard. As well as seat belt reminders and a wide selection of airbags, the Tiguan has an array of technology designed to keep you safe.
The AEB Pedestrian system is designed to avoid collisions with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, and reduce your speed if an unexpected obstacle is recognised in order to reduce the risk to their safety, as well as yours. The AEB City and AEB Inter-urban features help you to avoid low speed and rear-ending collisions by monitoring the distance between your car and the vehicle in front, and alerting you if the distance becomes insufficient. The AEB systems are autonomous, so can brake on your behalf, as well as increase your braking to minimise your braking distance.
Another feature of the Tiguan is the lane-assist system. This feature keeps you safe on the motorway by alerting you if you begin to move or drift from your lane, and helps you to avoid collisions with other road users.
As mentioned earlier, the safer that you can make your car, the lower your premiums may become. So it’s worth considering investing in some of the optional safety measures available for the Tiguan. Features include speed assistance, which restricts the use of excessive speed and helps you to keep to the legal speed limit, as well as Active Bonnet that is designed to reduce the risk to pedestrians in the event of a collision.
