23 Oct 2020 | International News : Germany

The ID.3 has achieved the highest score possible in the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) safety test. The auditors gave the first model to be based on the new modular electric drive matrix good ratings in all criteria - for protection of adult occupants, children and vulnerable road users, as well as for its safety assistance systems.

The assessment of occupant protection for adults is based on factors including frontal impact, lateral impact and whiplash tests. Based on these tests and an assessment of the measures taken with regard to prompt and safe rescue and extrication, a protection level of 87% was determined for drivers and passengers in the ID.3. A protection level as high as 89% was attested for children.

With the five-star rating, the ID.3 continues Volkswagen's successful run in Euro NCAP testing together with the new Golf and the T-Cross
In addition to occupant protection in vehicles, Euro NCAP also examines how well automatic emergency braking systems can protect vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists in the event of an impending collision. All equipment variant levels of the ID.3 come with the lane keeping assistant 'Lane Assist' and the emergency braking assistant 'Front Assist' as standard.

For the first time at Volkswagen, a feature known as a centre airbag for the front seats is also installed in the ID.3. It prevents possible head contact between the driver and front passenger in the event of a side collision, for example.

Volkswagen offers further high-end assistance systems as an option. One of them is the adaptive cruise control with predictive speed detection. Travel Assist enables assisted driving up to 160km/h. Traffic Jam assist, a Blind Spot sensor with Rear Traffic Alert, Emergency Assist and Park Assist also contribute to safe, relaxed driving.
