The Volkswagen Golf Provides Superior Safety

VW Golf reviews could hardly be more positive, with critics from Edmunds, Car and Driver, U.S. News and Reports, and Motor Trend lauding everything from efficiency to performance, and even variants like the Golf GTI received positive attention. Drivers from Signal Hill or Huntington Beach have visited our showroom to experience the new Golf first-hand, and it’s obvious the critics don’t lie.

2018 Volkswagen Golf Safety Highlights

Rearview Camera

Provides a live video feed of the area behind your VW Golf to make reversing and parking a breeze.

Park Pilot

Searches for suitable perpendicular or parallel spaces, then takes charge of the steering as you control the accelerator, brake, and shifter.

Automatic Post-Collision Braking System

Automatically brings your VW Golf to a stop after a collision is detected to reduce the chance of further accidents.

Intelligent Crash Response System

In the event of collision, the hazard lights are activated, the doors unlock, and the fuel pump is turned off.

The VW Golf Scoops Top Safety Scores

Volkswagen Golf safety ratings inspire instant confidence. With a perfect 5-star score after exhaustive crash-testing from the NHTSA, the VW Golf feels perfectly placed to protect you and your family in the event of a collision. It’s the rigid safety cage that does it, plus:

  • Front and Side Thorax Airbag Supplemental Restraint Systems
  • Front and Rear Side Curtain Protection® Head Airbags
  • Safety Belt Pretensioners with Load Limiters
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child seat anchor points
  • 3-Point Safety Belts

In the event of a collision, those features work together to keep you from harm, but you should never need to put them to the test. With an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), and Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) as standard, you’ll maintain perfect traction regardless of weather conditions in Cerritos or road conditions around Huntington Beach.

Car and Driver loved all the “coveted pieces of active safety equipment” on the VW Golf, such as:

  • Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist)
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • High Beam Control
  • Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)
