In terms of road safety, Audi has proven it is king.

The Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded 15 Audi models with the 2022 Top Safety Pick+ Awards, including fully electric e-tron models, sedans, SUVs, and the automaker’s latest model, the A5 Coupe. This achievement placed Audi on a pedestal this year, leading other manufacturers in the total number of vehicles that qualified for the IIHS award.

 “We are proud to lead the industry with the most IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards, and recognize our amazing Audi engineers that continuously develop, design, and test our cars to achieve these high safety standards,” President of Audi of America Daniel Weissland shared.

Why the Top Safety Pick+ Award Matters

The IIHS awards the Top Safety Pick+ to vehicles that meet the IIHS criteria and passes all evaluations performed by the organization. To earn it, a vehicle must get a “good” rating in 6 IIHS crashworthiness tests such as the:


·           Driver’s Side Small Overlap Front

·           Passenger Side Small Overlap Front

·           Moderate Overlap Front

·           Original Side Impact

·           Roof Strength

·           Head Restraint Tests


On top of that, a vehicle must also have a front crash prevention system, which should have an “advanced” or “superior” rating in both the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian and vehicle-to-vehicle evaluations. Not to mention, good or acceptable headlights must be standard on all trims.


Audi’s feat proves its continued commitment in putting customers first through giving top priority on the safety of all cars, making sure that they offer nothing less than the best.
