KW increasingly develops adaptive SUV Coilover Suspension Kits: DDC plug&play available for VW Tiguan II
Every year the market share of SUVs is growing. According to various media reports, almost every third car sold in Germany and almost every second car in Russia, USA, Canada is an SUV. In China and Korea over 40 percent of all newly sold cars are a Sport Utility Vehicle.
For these booming markets, KW automotive, the suspension manufacturer, offers its KW Coilover Suspension Kits, which have been awarded prizes by the press, on more and more SUVs. Many current “midsize or compact SUVs” such as the VW Tiguan II (Type 5N) are optionally available with electronic suspension control.
Especially for these models, the KW DDC plug&play Coilover Suspension Kit is recommended. The adaptive shocks with their electronically controlled proportional valves are compatible with the active VW suspension control DCC (Dynamic Chassis Control).
This system permanently reacts to driving situations, takes acceleration, braking, and steering processes into account and then adjusts in milliseconds the KW DDC plug&play Coilover Suspension Kit.
Besides, various dampening settings can be selected and set via the cockpit dash.
When installing our adaptive DDC plug&play Coilover Suspension Kit in the Tiguan, simply connect our compatible DDC plug to the original DCC plug. Afterwards the different driving and suspensions profiles from the OEM system are also available with our kit.
Afterwards the different driving and suspensions profiles from the OEM system are also available with our kit. Depending on the dialed setting, the Tiguan drives sporty and harmonious or more comfortable even with a maximum lowering – and even when the Tiguan load capacity is reached.
The SUV always remains safely controllable and the typical pitch and roll movements of the bodywork are significantly reduced.
Within the scope of the parts certificate, the tested and approved adjustment range of the stepless lowering on both axles of the Tiguan II is 35 – 55 millimeters.
