2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack safety rating

Safety is a paramount concern for Volkswagen. The Golf, Golf GTI, Jetta, and Passat were all given Top Safety Pick+ honors by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the automaker is one of 20 auto manufacturers worldwide that will make automatic emergency braking a standard feature by 2022. Now, Volkswagen has been given another honor for its upcoming Golf Alltrack model for its commitment to safety. Read on for more information about the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack safety rating.

2017 VW Golf Alltrack NHTSA rating

The 2017 Golf Alltrack has earned a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which runs the government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and has been a trusted source for safety information since 1978.

“Volkswagen is thrilled that the Golf Alltrack will come to market this fall having earned the highest 5-star overall crash test rating from the government. The Alltrack was already highly anticipated, thanks to the combination of SportWagen design and all-wheel drive performance, so this rating will add to the vehicle’s appeal and allow us to grow volume in the marketplace.” – Joerg Sommer, Vice President Product Marketing and Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc.

As is the case with the rest of the Golf family, the Alltrack is equipped with a combination of passive and active safety systems. It has been created to meet or exceed all current crash regulations, a goal right from the beginning, and it includes no fewer than six airbags as standard, plus a number of electronic safety systems. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), and Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) are among the systems that help give drivers extra security when behind the wheel.

The 2017 Golf Alltrack joins the rest of the Golf family, plus the Beetle coupe, Jetta, and Passat, as 2017 Volkswagen models that have been given a 5-star rating by the NHTSA. The vehicle is expected at dealerships this fall.
