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. 

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
