2016 Volkswagen Golf 4-Door/Wagon — Top Safety Pick +
Front Crash Prevention: Advanced (3 points)
Annual Insurance Costs: $1,395–$1,431
Volkswagen upgraded the safety systems in the Golf for 2016 to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking along with Forward Collision Warning. Forward Collision Warning alerts the driver to potential front-end collisions — both audibly and visually at speeds above 19 mph — and, if necessary, engages the brakes to slow the vehicle. Even if the driver does engage the brakes, the system will increase braking pressure automatically to aid in slowing or stopping the vehicle. Although the system is not designed to completely avoid impacts at high speeds, the Golf’s speed was reduced by 10 mph in the 12 mph IIHS Low-speed Autobrake test.
Additional Costs: Autonomous Emergency Braking is available in the Driver Assistance Package on the Golf SE or SEL for $1,495.
