2014 Volkswagen Touareg Safety

9.0
On Safety

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.

The 2014 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.

Safety scores have been good with the latest Touareg, though they're incomplete.

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.
