Volkswagen Tiguan (2009)

Volkswagen Tiguan --
During the first roll there was very little deformation and due to high elasticity, an over 50% recovery from peak deformation. The sunroof did not break and the windshield experienced cracking but did not fail completely. During the second roll the windshield fractured further. The front driver side window broke completely and the front panel on the sunroof broke as well.

About the Test

The test was a two roll event. The planned difference between the rolls was the pitch of the vehicle; 5 degrees in Roll 1 and 10 degrees in Roll 2 and the position of the Hybrid III dummy. For Roll 1, the dummy was located “out of position;" leaning towards the passenger side approximately 45°in order to simulate approximately 1g of lateral acceleration. For Roll 2, the dummy was left in the resting position from the previous roll.
