The Touareg achieved five stars when Euro NCAP allowed a re-run of the pole test after Volkswagen modified the curtain airbag. The body shell is immensely strong and provides a stable passenger cell for all of the occupants. The restraint systems include dual stage airbags and front safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, seat-mounted side airbags and a curtain head airbag. The child protection offered was good but the pedestrian protection was not very inspiring.
