    The Tiguan L Pro will be equipped with L2+ level intelligent driving assistance. Today, we will analyze and test it for everyone. First, the car is equipped with ACC adaptive cruise control, which can meet the following needs from 0-130km, whether it is city expressways or high-speed cruising, it is very user-friendly, and the overall recognition rate is also very high.

    The vehicle’s performance in following other vehicles is very satisfactory, especially at intersections. After the lead vehicle starts, we do not need to do anything, the vehicle can start automatically. We also noticed that when the vehicle enters an unmarked road section, the speed does not increase further, but maintains the current speed until re-entering a marked road section, where the speed will continue to increase to our set speed.

    In addition, the vehicle has lane keeping and lane departure warning functions. When activated, the vehicle can stay in the middle of the lane, and we can observe the lane and surrounding vehicles through the dashboard. When navigating curves, the vehicle can slightly lean towards the inside of the lane, simulating normal driving to avoid visual perception misunderstandings.

    The Tiguan L Pro also supports lever lane change function. When we lightly touch the steering lever, the vehicle can quickly recognize the situation of the corresponding lane on one side. As long as there are no cars behind, the vehicle can quickly and accurately change lanes. The whole process is very smooth and smooth, taking about 3 seconds to complete the lane change action.

    After adding these features, many people wonder if they can let go of the steering wheel and let the vehicle drive itself. This idea is clearly dangerous because it is an intelligent driving assistance system that still requires manual operation. In order to prevent this situation, the Tiguan L Pro’s steering wheel is equipped with sensors. When it detects that we have not touched the steering wheel for more than 10 seconds, it will sound an alarm and display a message to ensure driving safety.

    If we still do not control the steering wheel within two warning cycles, the system will increase the warning level. It will prompt the driver to control the vehicle by decelerating and accelerating, but not abruptly. If the driver still does not control the steering wheel after such warnings, the system will determine that the driver is in danger and will gradually stop the vehicle in the current lane. This may seem dangerous, but it is actually the best solution. We do not want such situations to occur, as safety is the top priority.

    The Tiguan L Pro is equipped with an infrared camera inside the car, placed on the rearview mirror. If fatigue is detected in the driver, prompts will be given immediately through sound and text to ensure driving safety.

    Currently, this car does not support highway pilot function. When we turn on navigation, the car cannot change lanes or alter the route autonomously. It can only stay in the current lane. However, with more cameras equipped, implementing these functions should not be too difficult. Once the algorithm is ready, a simple OTA upgrade should make it easy to achieve.

    The entertainment screen on the co-pilot side supports independent Bluetooth connection and allows video viewing while driving. The screen is equipped with anti-peeping screen processing to avoid affecting the driver. The screen can also set up car navigation, reducing safety hazards for drivers. More functions are delegated to the co-pilot to complete.

    Summary: As a pure gasoline vehicle, the Tiguan L Pro has made significant changes in technology and intelligence, which is in line with the concept of “oil and electricity with wisdom.” However, the car currently does not support navigation function, so compared to domestic new forces, it still has a lot of room for improvement. We hope Volkswagen can quickly learn from these practical features to further enhance the competitiveness and cost-effectiveness of the car.
