According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Highway Loss Data Institute, the Volkswagen Golf GTI 4-door hatchback, Tiguan 4-door SUV and Jetta 4-door sedan are most likely the safest models available in the 2019 lineup. The system used by the IIHS HLDI rates different aspects of vehicle crashworthiness as either good, acceptable marginal or poor.

Safety in the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI

The 2019 VW Golf GTI received a good rating from the IIHS on almost every aspect of its crashworthiness, including the small overlap front driver-side, moderate overlap front, the side, roof strength, and the head restraints and seats. Ease of use for child seat anchors also received a good rating. The 2019 VW Golf GTI hatchback has also received a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Some of the most outstanding safety features equipped on the 2019 VW Golf GTI are the rearview camera system, the safety cage, and the Intelligent Crash Response System.

Safety in the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan

The IIHS awarded the 2019 VW Tiguan with a good rating on every aspect of its crashworthiness, including the passenger side. According to the IIHS, this midsized SUV is superior at front crash prevention, crash avoidance and mitigation when it comes with optional equipment. The headlights received a marginal rating for certain trips, and the ease of use for child seat anchors was rated as acceptable.

The 2019 VW Tiguan also comes equipped with all of the same outstanding features mentioned for the 2019 VW Golf GTI. The wide lens on the rearview makes avoiding obstacles while backing up in the SUV easier than ever. Crumple zones in the front and rear absorb crash energy and help worth in tandem with the safety cage to protect drivers and passengers. A number of systems are also in place to continue protecting occupants after a collision has already occurred.

Safety in the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2019 VW Jetta also received a good rating on every aspect of its crashworthiness. Much like the Tiguan, the IIHS rated the 2019 Jetta as superior at font crash prevention, crash avoidance, and mitigation. In addition, the midsized VW Jetta was rated as acceptable concerning ease of use for child seat anchors and as marginal for the headlights equipped on certain trims.

The 2019 VW Jetta comes equipped with the same features available in the Golf GTI 4 and the Tiguan. If a collision is severe enough to cause the airbags to deploy, the ICRS is designed to react and unlock the door, shut off the fuel pump and activate the hazards if occupants are unable to. In addition, the automatic post-collision braking system helps reduce the risk of additional impacts by slowing the vehicle down following the initial impact.
