Audi Santa Barbara shares the good news that the Audi A6 has earned designation as a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle for 2016.

Santa Barbara, CA – The new 2016 Audi A6 was recently tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and earned the designation as a Top Safety Pick+ thanks to its excellent performance in each of the crashworthiness tests. The IIHS completes testing on new vehicles to determine their safety rating and to provide consumers with insight into the safety standards of each vehicle. The results of the tests are published publicly so consumers can review and compare safety performance across multiple brands and models. The Audi A6 Top Safety Pick+ designation came after improved performance in the small overlap test and applies to all models built after January 2016.

“Our customers will be pleased to know that Audi takes the results of these tests seriously and are dedicated to continuous improvement in both safety and performance aspects,” shares Audi Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Bill Fogg.

Vehicles that earn a “good” rating in each of the different crash test categories qualify as a Top Safety Pick, and to earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating, they must earn a “good” rating in each category and also have an available front crash prevention system that earns a superior rating. The individual crash categories include: small overlap protection, moderate overlap front and side test, roof strength testing, and head restraint evaluations.
