The 2016 Passat was among the select Midsize moderately priced cars to be named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

“To qualify for 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention,” according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website.

The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System is standard on the Passat and comes with the following available driver assistance features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist)
  • Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)
  • Passive and active Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic Alert

The Front Assist system helps to alert the driver of critical front-collision solutions both acoustically and visually, and braking is initiated to slow down the vehicle.

“The Passat’s IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award demonstrates Volkswagen’s longstanding commitment to vehicle safety and the development of innovative technologies,” said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Features such as Active Blind Spot Monitor and perpendicular Park Assist are unique to the segment and not typically seen outside of the luxury market.”
