The new Touran awarded top marks in EuroNCAP tests
04 September 2015
The all-new Volkswagen Touran has been awarded a five-star rating by independent safety organisation Euro NCAP – with an overall score that marks it out as one of the safest and most protective family cars in the industry.
Set to arrive in the UK in December, the new Touran excelled in the latest round of Euro NCAP tests, thanks to its a first-class safety package that includes an optimised body structure, highly effective belt, seat and airbag combination and innovative driver assistance systems. The Touran performed strongly in all four key areas: occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and safety assistance, and highlighted Volkswagen’s commitment to occupant and pedestrian safety.
Euro NCAP has been regarded as one of the most important benchmarks for vehicle safety in Europe since 1997. The new Touran was put through the organisation’s newest and most rigorous test programme, and recorded an 88 per cent rating for adult safety.
