In a week where many are hearing about poor safety ratings for many passenger cars, it is important to note that the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta has been given a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In addition to the Jetta, the 2014 Volkswagen Passat and Beetle models have both also recieved the top safety ratings from the NHTSA. The federal department has not yet rated the SportWagen.
According to the NHTSA, the VW Jetta earned a 5-star rating in their side crash tests, a 4-star rating in their rollover crash tests, and a 4-star rating in their frontal crash tests.
The Volkswagen Jetta also recently received a “good” rating when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducted their own crash tests.
Volkswagen now has three models in the lineup that have earned a 5-star rating overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
