Whiplash Protection Test

Rear: 0.38 points

Front: 1.18 points

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, dummy readings indicated GOOD protection for all critical body areas of both child dummies, apart from the neck of the 10 year dummy where protection was rated
as ADEQUATE.

In the side impact test, protection of both dummies was GOOD and the Touareg scored maximum points.

The Touareg is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions. Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in all rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The VW Touareg has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance from stiff components in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and GOOD or ADEQUATE results were recorded over most of the bonnet area with some MARGINAL and WEAK results recorded on the windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with mostly POOR results.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system offered ADEQUATE performance in pedestrian test scenarios, with GOOD performance recorded in daylight scenarios and ADEQUATE to WEAK performance in some night-time scenarios. In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered GOOD performance.
