The safety and security of you and your passengers is our number one priority and it should always be yours, too. Each of Volkswagen’s models are fitted with advanced safety technologies and are among the safest vehicles on the road. As for the Volkswagen Golf, safety can be found everywhere. Let’s go over some of the Golf’s safety features.

Safety cage 

It all starts with the skeleton. Like your rib cage encases your lungs and heart, the Golf’s safety cage makes sure that the passengers and the rest of the interior are as secure as possible. The cage absorbs impact energy and helps to disperse it throughout the Golf so damage can be minimized. It is made of alloyed high strength steel and is as sturdy as ever. This cage has helped the Golf to earn a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA. 

Post-collision braking 

In the event of a crash, Volkswagen’s automatic post-collision braking system helps to contain any damage. We sincerely hope this system will never be needed, but it is a great system that helps keep a bad situation from becoming even worse.

Stability systems 

Several systems come standard on the Golf. These include brake pressure distribution and stability control. The electronic brake pressure distribution system maintains stopping power during a hard braking scenario and the electronic stability control adjusts the engine throttle when needed to correct the Golf’s traction. 

Crash response system 

As another passive feature, we hope this is never needed. In the event of a crash, the Intelligent Crash Response System deploys airbags, disables the fuel pump, unlocks doors, and activates hazard lights all automatically. This system is designed to react to things that you might not be able to.
