The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has handed out Top Safety Pick awards to six Volkswagen models this year. Four 2017 Golf models and the Passat scored a Top Safety Pick rating from the organization, while the 2017 Jetta received the highest honor: a Top Safety Pick+ rating.
The Golf Alltrack, Golf 4-door, Golf SportWagen and Golf GTI 4-door all earned the Top Safety Pick accolade when equipped with Front Assist. The 2017 Passat, which comes standard with Front Assist, nabbed the same rating. The top-of-the-line 2017 Jetta collected the Top Safety Pick+ rating when fitted with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning and Bi-Xenon headlights.
“At Volkswagen, we strongly believe that the latest advanced driver assist technologies can be delivered without being in the premium segment,” said Hendrik Muth, Senior Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy. ”The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings awarded to a variety of Volkswagen models compliments our ongoing commitment to offering these features.”
