Audi USA announced the Audi A6, which has been newly refreshed for 2016, has earned the rating of Top Safety Pick + when equipped with Driver Assistance package and produced after January 2015. This is the highest 2015 rating available from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2016 A6 also underwent the IIHS Small Overlap Front Crash test and received the highest possible rating of a “good”.

“This year’s Top Safety Pick+ award for the Audi A6 reflects the Brand’s longstanding commitment to the development and introduction of innovative technologies,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. “With outstanding safety features, available driver assistance systems, and a refined design, the 2016 A6 exemplifies the commitment to excellence that Audi stands for.”

IIHS Top Safety Pick Ratings

IIHS tests evaluate two aspects of safety: crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash — and crash avoidance and mitigation — technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity.

To determine crashworthiness, IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal or poor, based on performance in five tests: moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. In the area of crash avoidance and mitigation, IIHS assigns vehicles with available front crash prevention systems ratings of basic, advanced or superior, based on the type of system and performance in track tests.
