2013 Vw Golf 7 gets five stars at the Euro NCAP crash test

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 4, 2012

The European consumer protection organisation Euro NCAP has given a top five star rating to the new Golf. It will go on sale this January in the UK. It was also named the winner in terms of innovations in the integral safety category in the highly admired Euro NCAP Advanced Awards.

It features the following safety innovations: Lane Assist and Front Assist, proactive occupant protection and the standard multiple impact brake activation system.

This confirms how competitive the Golf has become in its class. The European consumer protection organisation Euro NCAP gave the Golf the top scores, citing the overall safety package that consists of occupant protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and driver assistance systems. The seventh generation Golf has kept the top position in Europe for many decades now.

Notably, the new Golf also got top scores for its occupant protection. The Golf was subjected to frontal and side impact tests, a pole side impact test and the whiplash test, wherein loads to the cervical spine are measured in a rear end collision.

The safety of both adults and children in the new Golf is enhanced. Tests were conducted on dummies that had the sizes of 18 month old and three year old kids. Testers were also impressed with the new Golf’s pedestrian protection capabilities.
