Volkswagen’s 2014 model-year Jetta has earned a 5-Star Safety Rating -- the highest possible -- from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

The Jetta joins the Passat and Beetle coupe as 2014 Volkswagen models that have an overall 5-Star rating.

NCAP administers front, side and rollover crash tests.

"Volkswagen is delighted that the Jetta, our biggest-selling model, has earned the highest 5-Star overall crash test rating from the government — providing further validation that Volkswagen produces some of the safest vehicles in the industry," said Marc Trahan, executive vice president of group quality for Volkswagen Group of America Inc. "Our vehicles have numerous safety technologies that work to help prevent collisions, and help protect occupants when an accident is unavoidable."
