Top five safest cars of 2009

According to a press release from Euro NCAP, the top five safest cars of 2009 are as follows:

The VW Golf VI frontal impact test

1. VW Golf VI
2. Honda Insight
3. Toyota Prius
4. Hyundai i20
5. Toyota Avensis
5. Volvo XC60
5. Opel/Vauxhall Astra

This is based on their maximum five star award and their overall scores and was out of a total of 33 car models that were tested last year.

The VW Golf performed impressively in all four categories tested, namely, occupant protection of adults, protection of children, pedestrian protection and supporting safety and driver assistance systems.

It is interesting that two fuel-efficient vehicles, namely, the Honda Insight Hybrid and Toyota Prius, were placed second and third respectively.

On the other hand the Suzuki Alto and the Toyota Urban Cruiser, received three stars, Euro NCAP’s poorest results.
