Wolfsburg, 25 June 2014: The new Golf SV today received the top award of five stars from the independent European consumer protection organisation Euro NCAP. With its top-class package of safety features made up of robust vehicle body structure, highly effective combination of seat belts, seats and airbags, plus innovative driver assistance systems the Golf SV is one of the world's safest cars.

Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) has for many years been seen as an important benchmark for vehicle safety. The overall safety rating of five stars for the new Golf SV is made up from the results in four sub-sections: occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and safety assistance.

In the comprehensive adult occupant protection tests, which in addition to testing frontal impact into an aluminium barrier with a speed of 64 km/h (and 40 per cent overlap) also includes a side impact test (at 50 km/h against the driver's door) and side impact into a pole (at 29 km/h), the Golf SV achieved 87 per cent of the maximum points total. In the important child protection section the Golf SV also did extremely well, achieving over 85 per cent of the available points.

The Euro NCAP also incorporates into its assessment electronic safety and driver assistance systems that help to prevent accidents or to reduce their severity appreciably: the Golf SV provides a very high degree of safety and is equipped as standard with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), including ABS with Brake Assist, XDS+ electronic differential lock, Multi Collision Brake, tyre pressure indicator, trailer stabilisation, ISOFIX child seat anchors on the back bench seat and airbags for driver and front-seat passenger with front-seat passenger deactivation, including knee airbag on the driver's side and a head airbag system for front and rear-seat passengers, including side airbags.

In addition Volkswagen offers numerous driver assistance systems as options for the Golf SV, which further improve safety: these include ACC Adaptive Distance Control and Front Assist surroundings monitoring system, including City Emergency Braking function, Lane Assist, a proactive occupant protection system and the Light Assist and Dynamic Light Assist full beam control systems.

The comprehensive package provided for the Golf SV is rounded off by the Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert, being used for the first time in a Golf. It warns drivers of any vehicles in their blind spot and when reversing out of a parking space of any road users approaching from the side.
