Volkswagen Virtus Crash Test Latin NCAP

When it comes to safety, Volkswagen doesn’t seem to compromise. In fact, when Global NCAP started Safer Cars For India initiative, VW Polo was among the first batch of cars tested. It scored a shocking 0 star rating, as the base variant was offered without airbags. VW immediately made dual airbags as standard across Polo range. Retest gave Polo an impressive 4-stars in adult protection and 3-stars in child protection.

Recently, GNCAP tested VW Taigun and Skoda Kushaq under their new protocols and both of them scored 5-stars. Taigun and Kushaq are based on MQB A0 IN, and so are Virtus and Slavia sedans. When Latin NCAP tested Virtus which is sold as New Virtus in South America, it scored 5-stars as well.

Volkswagen Virtus 5 Star Safety – Made In India

It is to be noted that testing protocols of each NCAP entity vary based on market norms. That said, there is not much variation between them. New Virtus sold in Latin America is considered to be vastly similar to Virtus that we have in India. The test vehicle is said to be based on MQB A0 IN and had 6 airbags.

Latin NCAP conducted front offset deformable barrier test at 64 km/h speed, side mobile barrier test at 50 km/h speed, side pole impact test at 29 km/h speed, pedestrian adult and child headform to bonnet tests at 40 km/h, autonomous emergency braking tests and more.

Frontal impact: It was revealed that protection offered to driver and passenger head and neck was good. Driver’s chest got adequate protection and passenger’s chest got good protection. Both driver’s and passenger’s knees showed good protection. Further, driver’s tibia and passenger’s left tibia showed adequate protection, and passenger’s right tibia showed good protection.

Footwell area of Volkswagen Virtus was rated as stable and symmetrical between both driver and passenger sides. Mainly, car’s bodyshell was rated as stable and capable of withstanding further loadings. Taking side impact: Head, abdomen and pelvis protection was good according to Latin NCAP. Chest protection was adequate as well.

Auto Emergency Braking

Side Pole Impact revealed that head, abdomen and pelvis protection was good, and chest protection was marginal as well. The whiplash test revealed that Virtus’ seat showed good protection to an adult’s neck. UN R32 test protocol revealed that Virtus meets rear impact structure requirements too.

AEB City tests show that the car offers AEB City meeting Latin NCAP technical and availability requirements. Rescue sheet is available according to Latin NCAP criteria. It should be noted that India-spec Virtus doesn’t get ADAS features. It misses out on active safety systems like auto emergency braking which Latin-spec New Virtus came with. When crash-tested on our soil by GNCAP or Bharat NCAP, Virtus scores could be different.
