VW Golf is Safest Car of 2009 - Web Exclusive

Feb 2, 2010

For the first time ever, the EuroNCAP Institute in Brussels compiled all of its crash test results for ‘09 and named the VW Golf the safest car of the year with a total of 103 points.

In ’08, the Golf earned a five-star EuroNCAP rating. With stricter criteria for ’09, the Golf was re-tested and performed excellently in all four categories of the competition - occupant protection of adults, protection of children, pedestrian protection and supporting safety and driver assistance systems. In total, 33 cars were tested under the new, stricter and more extensive EuroNCAP crash testing procedure.

The Golf offers maximum safety with standard safety features that include ESP with counter-steer assist, ABS with braking assistance, anti-slip regulation (ASR), electronic differential lock (EDS), engine drag torque control (MSR), trailer stabilization, Isofix mounting brackets for two child seats on the rear bench as well as airbags for driver and front passenger with passenger-side deactivation, including knee airbag for the driver and a head airbag system for front and rear passengers with side airbags.
