Volkswagen Amarok and ID Buzz get 5 star Euro NCAP scores

January 24, 2023

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles' ID. Buzz and new Amarok models have both received top marks for safety from European testing organisation Euro NCAP.

Both models were rated as 'Very good' and given the top ranking of '5 Stars' for vehicle safety.

The Volkswagen ID Buzz electric MPV achieved an outstanding overall score for collision and occupant protection, with 92% of the maximum possible ratings points for occupant protection. There is also a commercial vehicle variant of the ID Buzz but the Volkswagen ID Buzz Cargo is not subjected to the same Euro NCAP safety test, despite being a similar vehicle.

The new Volkswagen Amarok pick-up truck achieved a similarly high scores in the crash tests. The Amarok's robust vehicle body structure and large number of standard safety assistance and emergency braking systems contributing to the high score. The Amarok is also based on the new Ford Ranger pick-up truck which shares many of its underpinnings with the Ford Ranger Raptor.

Both the ID Buzz and the Amarok also scored highly in the 'Safety Assist' category, achieving 90% (ID. Buzz) and 84% (Amarok) of the possible ranking points.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has also launched a new Augmented Reality experience app to give its customers the chance to virtually explore life-size models of the ID Buzz range. First deliveries of the model reach customers in December last year and the van has gone on to win a host of awards including the prestigious International Van of the Year award.

The all-electric ID Buzz range with MPV and LCV variants is now on sale but with demand expected to be high, the new Volkswagen AR experience might be your best bet at taking a look at the new van before anyone else does. Albeit virtually.
