2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack NHTSA 5-star safety rating

Volkswagen can add another vehicle onto its growing list of award-winning vehicles as the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack joins the rest of the Golf family with its newly awarded NHTSA 5-Star Safety Rating. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which conducts the New Car Assessment Program looked into multiple aspects of vehicular safety when assessing the Alltrack, which excelled across all fields.

Since its announcement, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack has been touted as a viable choice for families looking for a more compact vehicle. Not only does the Alltrack offer a spacious interior and impressive capability, but now it has also proven to be a safe choice as well.

When examining the 2017 Golf Alltrack, the NHTSA assessed front, side and rollover crash tests. Much of the Alltrack’s success in its crash tests is credited to its new 4Motion® All-Wheel Drive performance, sturdy SportWagen construction, and its winning combination of active and passive safety features.

Standard safety features in the 2017 Alltrack include a six-airbag system, Electronic Stability Control, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and an Intelligent Crash Response System. The Alltrack also highlights its driver available assistance systems which include Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Alerts, Parking Pilot and Park Assist.
