The Volkswagen Golf’s distinctions continue to ascend. For the eighth time, the ‘Das Auto’ automaker revealed that the VW Golf GTI earned the 2022 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the eighth time. The IIHS Top Safety Pick for the Golf GTI originates from the hatchback’s newly equipped High Beam Control. Moreover, the 2022 VW Golf R also attained a spot atop the 2022 Top Safety Pick+. 

The IIHS’s Top Safety Pick recieved “good” ratings in six crashworthiness tests. In addition to the six evaluations, any vehicle that comprised the IIHS list for the 2022 Top Safety Pick had to acquire no less than an “advanced” rating for both front crash prevention trials. 

So, of course, the Golf GTI attained good ratings in six of the crash-worthy evaluations. The 2022 VW Golf GTI’s LED headlights with the available High Beam Control premiere standard on the Autobahn trim. Furthermore, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn trim also attained an acceptable rating. 

The standard for every VW Golf GTI and R is its front assist system. The Front Assist system achieved a superior rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle front crash avoidance. Furthermore, the Assist system also acquired an advanced rating for vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention. 

Volkswagen Golf fanatics are familiar with the automaker’s Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist). Additionally, the Forward Assist system warns drivers of possible frontal collisions (Forward Collision Warning) with vehicles and pedestrians. In addition to the German automaker’s automatic braking assistance, the Forward Assist system can also pinpoint cyclists and pedestrians parallel to the VW hatchback. Furthermore, the Golf GTI and R’s system forewarns the driver of any vehicle that appears to be turning into the vehicle’s pathway. 

Other features that premiere standard for the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI and R include Slide Assist (Blind Spot Monitor) and Rear Traffic Alert. The German automakers, IQ.Drive is also standard for all Golf models. Those IQ.Drive features include Travel Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Stop & Go, and Lane Assist. Additionally, Emergency Assist is optional for Golf models fitted with automatic transmission. Yet, aside from IQ.Drive, Park Distance Control, Park Assist, Dynamic Road Sign Display, and Light Assist are standards for Golf R but are optional for select Volkswagen Golf GTI trims.
