The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg stands as one of the safest vehicles on the market, with a combination of excellent crash-test scores and advanced safety technology that could help avoid an accident.

The Touareg includes nine standard airbags, along with all of the standard features that are typical among crossovers, but it's the safety-tech options that are most noteworthy. An Area View monitor with four cameras; Lane Assist and Side Assist blind-spot monitors; adaptive cruise control; and bi-xenon headlamps with Dynamic Light Assist, could each serve in avoiding some kinds of accidents and keep your family safer.

While the federal government hasn't yet put the Touareg through its revised NCAP program, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the last couple of model years of the Touareg its Top Safety Pick award, including "good" scores in frontal, side, rear, and roof-strength tests.

 

 

Conclusion

The VW Touareg remains one of the safer vehicles in this class--even considering its recent weight loss.

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.
