Volkswagen’s 2013 Golf hatch has earned the maximum five star ANCAP safety rating, ahead of its local arrival this month.

The Mk7 Golf becomes the third generation to score the maximum five stars - a record that stretches back to 2005 – and follows its recent crowns as 2013 European Car of the Year and World Car of the Year.

Unlike previous Golfs however, systems such as city emergency braking (AEB) and adaptive cruise control (ACC) will feature, along with a bevy of standard air bags an advanced crash structure.

Another new-to-Golf safety feature will be its multi-collision braking system, which can automatically apply the brakes to a vehicle that has already been involved in a collision.

This aims to prevent the vehicle from rolling into other obstacles and causing further damage.

In awarding the 2013 Golf its five star rating, ANCAP Chairman Lauchlan McIntosh noted Volkswagen’s consistently high safety scores.

"Almost all current Volkswagen passenger vehicles rated by ANCAP hold the maximum five star ANCAP safety rating,” Mr McIntosh said.

The five star ANCAP rating for the 2013 Golf applies to all petrol variants, with diesel variants yet to be tested.
