This ANCAP safety rating applies to VW Polo petrol variants introduced in Australia and New Zealand in August 2014. A 5 star ANCAP safety rating also applies to the VW Polo from 2010.
The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP in 2009. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the Euro NCAP results apply to the 2014 Australasian Polo.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains) are standard. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is available on some variants. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.
