The Golf achieved five stars when Euro NCAP allowed a re-run of the pole impact test after Volkswagen modified the curtain airbagís packaging. The restraint systems and air bags protected the occupants and kept the driverís chest and head away from the steering wheel. Side impact protection was very impressive and the child restraints gave good levels of protection. Pedestrian protection matched that of the Touran, which is the best achieved by a European designed car.
