Audi Q5, Volkswagen CC Earn 'Top Safety Pick' Awards

June 10, 2009

ARLINGTON, VA --- The 2009 Audi Q5 and the 2009 Volkswagen CC this month both earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety 2009 Top Safety Pick award. 

To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of "good" in the institute's front, side and rear tests and be equipped with electronic stability control. 

Criteria to win are tough because the award is intended to drive continued safety improvements such as top crash test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control, the institute said. 

"Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results," said Institute President Adrian Lund.
