2011 Volkswagen Touareg Safety

9.0
Safety
The Volkswagen Touareg has been a solid performer in safety all along, and even though its structure has changed significantly this year, early crash-test indications along with a full list of safety features are hinting that it's probably now even better.

The previous version of the Touareg also earned top five-star results from the federal government, but the 2011 model hasn't yet been tested. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has however tested the 2011 and rated it 'good' in all categories—and named it a Top Safety Pick.

There are nine airbags onboard the new Touareg, with options including an Area View monitor with four cameras; Lane Assist and Side Assist; adaptive cruise control; and bi-xenon headlamps with Dynamic Light Assist. 

The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has lost a lot of weight this year, but that hasn't affected this SUV's excellent safety ratings.
