Tiguan, Kodiaq and friends
In the thirty minutes it takes to complete this circuit, the drivers of a Volkswagen SUV encounter every imaginable challenge: manoeuvring across a rutted dirt road and through an enormous cement pipe, traversing extreme corrugations and a number of railway lines, as well as coping with steps and a steep incline.
The vehicles’ technical equipment, like the Hill Descent Assist or the Hill Climb Assist, will help you to master the course. A finely-tuned throttle control and a particularly sensitive ABS system are all instrumental in the handling of the vehicles when negotiating the offroad track’s hard-to-traverse routes. The first time around an Autostadt instructor will drive the course with you. Next time round you take the wheel.
