Safety

A smiling woman drives a VW Taos.

Overview

A lot goes in before you do.

Safety is a core value to us. And while we can't predict everything you might encounter, we can and do spend long hours trying to help you prepare for it.

Rear View Camera System

Rear View Camera System lens.

Stay focused.

Benefit from the view of a wide lens when you want it. It can help you see obstacles when backing up, a feature so helpful you'll wonder how you ever managed without it.

Safety Cage

We're rigid about safety.

Front and rear crumple zones help absorb crash energy, while a rigid safety cage helps distribute forces away from the driver and passengers.

Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS)

Intelligent crash response system icon

Intelligent by design.

In the event of a collision that deploys the airbags, the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights. It helps react if you might not be able to.

Automatic Post-Collision Braking System

Automatic post-collision braking system icon

We think ahead.

Not every collision brings a car to stop. That's why our vehicles include the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Low tire pressure alert symbol.

Safety. Engineered from the ground up.

Monitoring and maintaining proper air pressure in your tires helps with efficiency and safety. The TPMS helps alert you to a loss of tire pressure so you know when to add air.

Six Stability Enhancing Systems

Stability-enhancing systems illustration

Equipped for peace of mind.

From Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), which helps maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard-braking situation, to Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most, your vehicle is equipped with a total of six stability-enhancing systems.
