Doesn't look like it ?
I also opted for the additional rear side airbags and seatbelt warning option...it was about £265...but I suppose you can't put a price on your kids safety [emoji603]

Wonder how the foot area coped.. That wheel appears to sink into the car.

They gave it a top pick so there really isn't anything better in the class. Basically most of the newly redesigned cars are doing well and older designs are failing because its a new test. Its kind of unfair to the manufacturers but there you go.

If only they had emergency city braking or adaptive cruise control on the other side of the pond? :eek:

I expect VW declined to put it on because of US legal system. Lawyers would have a field day if emergency city braking didn't prevent a smash. In crazy law suite land if one person successfully sued VW then anybody else in a similar accident would get paid out as well.

Many people have complained about the accelerator being hinged from the top rather than the floor, (what different it makes is beyond me!) In a front end smash the peddles swing up out of the way thus prevent damage to the feet.
