ANCAP Safety Rating
The Volkswagen Golf was originally rated by ANCAP in 2019. Volkswagen has since made a number of safety upgrades to the Volkswagen Golf and the updated model has been assessed against 2022 rating criteria. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all updated Golf MK8 variants built from November 2022 and on sale from February 2023.
Dual frontal, side head-protecting and side chest-protecting airbags are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard.
Autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and blind spot monitoring (BSM) are standard equipment.
