The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is one of the most respected names in vehicle safety ratings, which is why Audi is proud to announce that five models in the 2017 model year line-up have been named 2017 IIHS Top Safety Picks, with two of those earning the even more exclusive Top Safety Pick+ rating.

The 2017 Audi A3, A6, and Q7 are 2017 Top Safety Picks, while the advanced crash prevention technology on the 2017 Audi A4 and Q5 made them 2017 Top Safety Pick+ winners.

In order to receive a Top Safety Pick rating, all five Audi cars and SUVs had to earn the top rating of 'good' in numerous crash tests, including the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side roof strength, and head restraint tests. Additionally, they needed to earn at least an 'advanced' rating or ideally a 'superior' rating in front crash prevention technology. Finally, a new rule for 2017 states that vehicles must receive at least an 'acceptable' rating in headlight illumination and visibility in order to be a Top Safety Pick+.

"This year's Top Safety Picks for A3, A4, A6, Q5 and Q7 models speaks to our brand's commitment to make driver assistance and other innovative technologies available to all customers, from luxury SUVs to entry-level sedans,' said Scott Keogh, President Audi of America. 'We understand that safety and technical innovations are top considerations in a new vehicle purchase and we are proud to have so many of our models recognized with these prestigious awards.'
