The AWD is integrated closely with the traction-control system, electronic-stability system, anti-lock braking, gears shift points and throttle response. Each mode changes the way the SUV senses and acts. The all-wheel-drive functions extremely well and since the overhangs are short, Tiguan is fairly proficient off-road.
