At Volkswagen we take your safety very seriously. That's why we build our cars to offer maximum protection in the event of an accident. Crumple zones - part of the tough safety shell, airbags (up to 9 in some models) and Isofix child seat fixings are standard in all Volkswagen. And our tyre checking and repair systems1 help keep you safely on the road, even when the unexpected happens. Our cars go through a comprehensive programme of crash tests, before they are launched onto the market. Many models are also subject to independent Euro NCAP testing, more details of which can be found in the Euro NCAP section of this website.
