The renowned Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the USA has awarded both the Audi Q5 and Audi A4 models its 2010 TOP SAFETY PICK rating. These two models join the Audi A3 in achieving the highest safety recognition granted by the influential IIHS. Audi now offers more vehicles on the US market with the TOP SAFETY PICK rating than any German luxury automaker.
The IIHS regularly carries out crash tests on behalf of the US insurance industry on passenger vehicles of all kinds to establish their safety standard. Experts and car buyers alike around the world pay close attention to the results. TOP SAFETY PICK recognizes the vehicles that earn the highest rating of “good” for front, side and rear crash protection, and that have electronic stability control, which is standard on all of these models.
