Volkswagen said about this that people of different sizes and people in different positions will also be well protected. Even in full-width rigorous obstacle testing and side pole impact testing, the Volkswagen Polo provided decent protection for all critical areas of front and rear people.

Global NCAP also appreciated the fact that the Volkswagen Polo has measures in place to prevent injuries. For example the head restraint provided good protection for the front and rear people. The car also applies brakes immediately after impact to avoid another collision.
