IIHS Ratings Shape Automotive Safety

Since 1959, the Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, has provided vehicle safety testing that aims at preventing vehicle crash fatalities by providing standards for vehicle testing. IIHS Top Safety Pick Awards are given after putting new models through rigorous crash tests. The IIHS provides detailed ratings, crash test video footage, and more. 

For vehicles to win a Top Safety Pick+ rating, they must earn a perfect score in every category being tested. Vehicles can also earn the Top Safety Pick rating if they score high enough in most categories. The 2020 Audi A6, A7, and Q8 each took home IIHS Top Safety Pick Awards. The 2020 Audi A6 won the "Top Safety Pick+" Award, while the 2020 Audi A7 and Q8 were awarded the "Top Safety Pick" Award when equipped with optional LED Matrix-design headlights with high-beam assist.

Audi Safety Technology

All three winning models, the A6, A7, and Q8 each received top marks in each of the six crash tests that all vehicles sold in the US must undertake. Every Audi model equipped with Audi pre-sense® front earned "superior" ratings for the Front Crash Prevention tests. This avoidance system uses a front-mounted camera to observe the driver's path and makes an audible and visual warning to alert the driver when potentially hazardous situations arise.

Historically, performance luxury buyers sought only after high trim packages for the best in luxury and performance. Today, along with these, Audi owners now experience unmatched safety. Features such as the available HD Matrix Design LED headlights grabbed the attention of IIHS judges and were enough to gain vehicles equipped with them, the highest marks. Audi pre-sense® basic and Audi pre-sense front comes standard on new models, with other available safety upgrades. Other safety features includeAudi side assist, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic assist, Adaptive cruise control with stop & go, and top view camera systems.
