NHSTA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating for the 2019 VW Jetta
The 5-star safety rating for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is the highest rating that the NHTSA gives for cars. The NHTSA runs the government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), which provides front, side, and rollover crash test ratings, all aimed at helping consumers in making their vehicle purchasing decisions. The rating results are relayed to consumers using an easily recognizable star rating system.
“Volkswagen is delighted that the Jetta, our best-selling model, has earned the highest 5-star overall safety rating from the government — providing further validation that Volkswagen vehicles are among the safest vehicles in the industry – Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and After Sales for Volkswagen of America
