2016 Volkswagen Passat Top Safety Pick +

Safety is a top concern for drivers and automakers alike. That’s why Volkswagen works hard to provide customers with safe, quality vehicles. After receiving much attention during its release, the newly designed 2016 Volkswagen Passat has even more to celebrate. It’s been recently announced that the 2016 VW Passat, when it’s been equipped with its optional Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking system, has been awarded a 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Perhaps the most impressive part of its new title as a TOP SAFETY PICK + is its outstanding performance during the ever-challenging Small Overlap Front Car Crash, which simulates a collision between the front left corners of two oncoming vehicles. This test, showing a common and devastating type of collision, always proves difficult for vehicles. This is because much of a vehicle’s crash safety features and absorbers are located in the front center of the vehicle and are therefore not utilized in this type of crash.

However, the 2016 Volkswagen Passat passed this test with flying colors, achieving the highest possible rating of “good”. This is largely due to the new Passat’s fully reinforced structure.

In addition to its sturdy construction, the 2016 Passat comes with a winning combination of passive and active safety features designed to keep you out of harm’s way, and protect you when it’s unavoidable.

Some of the safety features available with the Passat include:

  • Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Park Assist
  • Much more!

With great features such as these, families and commuters alike can rest easy knowing that they’re in good hands every time they’re on the road.
