One for cool mums and dads

If you're after an easy-to-drive, roomy ride to pack the entire family in, look no further than the new Volkswagen Tiguan. It's a solid, sensible drive that will please both design lovers and practical stalwarts alike, and can be taken off-road on rougher tracks while still lending a smooth ride. Below, we've put together the features that will impress even the most frenetic parents.

When your kids are screaming in the backseat and pulling at your hair
If you're unable to concentrate because your youngest child tearing your hair out and blocking your line of sight, the Tiguan's Front Assist with City Emergency Braking will keep you safe. It identifies situations early on where the distance to the vehicle in front is critical. Misjudged your stopping distance? The system will automatically brake the car to a standstill.  

When baby's car seat is partially blocking your view
Easy peasy — hand over control of the steering wheel to the Park Assist system when easing into your parking lot. All you need to do is operate the accelerator and brake while keeping an eye on your surroundings.

When you're holding a kid in one arm and groceries in the other, while needing to open the boot
No hands? Never mind. Make sure you have your keys in your pocket, then wave your foot under the rear of the vehicle for the tailgate to open automatically. There's over 600 litres of luggage space in the Tiguan, which means your stroller and groceries (and even gym bag, if you please) will easily stow away in there. Press a single button to close the boot — there's absolutely no need for sheer strength.

When you're all craving sunlight and fresh air
Whether it's been too long of a drive, or you're parked by the river for a picnic, the panoramic sliding sunroof means you can soak in sunlight and breeze whenever you wish.
