Volkswagen’s new Golf SV has received the top safety award, five stars, from the independent Euro NCAP organisation.
With its top-class package of safety features, which includes robust body structure, highly effective seat-belts, seats and airbags, plus innovative driver assistance systems, the Golf SV has been judged one of the world’s safest cars. The overall five-star safety rating for the Golf SV is made up from the results in four categories: occupant protection for adults, and for children, pedestrian protection and safety assistance.
In addition, Volkswagen offer a number of optional driver assistance systems, including adaptive distance monitoring, an emergency braking system for urban environments, and an intelligent headlight system.
The comprehensive technology package is rounded off by the firm’s blind spot sensor with rear traffic alert, which warns drivers of any vehicles in their blind spot, and of any road users approaching from the side when they’re reversing out of a parking space.
