Volkswagen ID.7 wins What Car? Safety Award

The all-new Volkswagen ID.7 has picked up its first UK silverware, after What Car? magazine awarded the car its coveted Safety Award for 2024.

The accolade was announced at the magazine’s annual awards night, which is widely regarded as one of the most important events on the automotive calendar. The T-Roc also won an award – Best Small SUV for Comfort – 12 months after it won its category outright.

What Car? judges said they were particularly impressed by the way the ID.7 protects people inside and outside of the car, and how drivers can interact with its advanced technology.

The ID.7 was a clear winner in the minds of all the What Car? Safety Award judges, because it provides excellent protection for occupants of different statures, proving that Volkswagen takes an inclusive approach to safety,” said Steve Huntingford, What Car? editor. “The ID.7 also does a fine job of sharing the energy of an impact with another vehicle. But perhaps the most significant achievement of all is the performance of its active driver assistance systems, which don't interfere unless they are needed, and then work collaboratively with the driver.”

The Volkswagen ID.7 recently received a maximum five-star rating in the highly respected Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) safety test. This puts the electric fastback among the best-rated models currently on the market and, with its five-star rating, the ID.7 joins the ranks of Volkswagen’s other ID. models that have also previously received the highest Euro NCAP score. It was found to deliver excellent results in all the independent test organisation’s assessment areas, for both car occupants and unprotected road users, while also scoring well for standard assist systems such as emergency braking.

“This is the icing on our ID.7 cake,” said Phil Taylor, Head of Product Planning at Volkswagen UK. “We had great feedback from the media and public when the car was unveiled last year, and now this award further enhances the ID.7’s credentials as a superb premium electric car. What a great start to the year.”

The award-winning ID.7 is now available in our Poole showroom. Call us on 01202 713000 to book your test drive.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
