What people look for in a car varies, but they mostly come down to speed, design and safety features. The first two is often what ads feature, talking about how fast a car can accelerate and how smooth it drives. Some even capitalize on the sleek design, but research shows that more and more people are putting weight on how safe cars are, rather than just how aesthetically perfect and fast they are.
We think that’s a reasonable standard, considering your car is your daily companion. It should make you feel secure. That’s especially true if you’re fond of car pooling or driving your spouses and kids to wherever they have to go. Their safety and yours come first. To help you sort through the many cars on the market, we’ve put together a list of the safest Volkswagen models for you to choose from. They combine design, speed and the safety features that you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for a standard view on which car is really the safest, then look no further that government crash tests. It’s unbiased all most car companies are tested. In these tests, from frontal collision to side crash, Passat 2016 scored 5 stars. That means that, in case of those types of accidents, the chances of survival are higher for the passengers. Even the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety concedes that this mid size sedan is indeed one of the safest cars on the market. They claim that a 2016 Passat’s seatbelts provided optimal protection in case of a rear impact.
The 2016 Golf is one of the most award-winning cars when it comes to safety. It’s even dubbed as the safest Volkswagen on the market. It got a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and it was one of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top picks for safe cars available on the market.
If you’re looking for a smaller car to drive, then this is probably your best option. Its airbag installation is full proof, covering front side, the side curtain and the driver’s knees. It has anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control and collision warnings and sensors. Anything that could keep you safer, they’ve added as a feature to this car.
Any choice for a family car should first be inspected for safety features, and if you do, 2016 Tourareg will pass with flying colors. It’s the SUV for the family. Being a mid size luxury model, it can accommodate a lot of people and luggage. Its towing capacity and engine are not bad either. In fact, they’re reasons enough to buy this car, but both those features cannot rival the safety system of this model.
Like other Volkswagen cars, the 2016 Tourareg is equipped with the standard Volkswagen safety technology. In addition to that, it also comes with its own Technology Driver Assistance package. This program makes the car extensively safer because it covers almost every collision point, like the front, blind spot and rear. There is a warning system set up for your blind spot, when you’re switching lanes and in case you’re close to a frontal collision. It even has an automatic braking system and a rear view camera. If that does not say safest Volkswagen model to you, we’re not sure what will.
