2015 Volkswagen Jetta's IIHS Small Overlap Crash Test
The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has captured the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest award, Top Safety Pick+, thanks in large part to a structural upgrade that improves small overlap protection. Volkswagen strengthened the A-pillars and doorsills for the 2015 model year. As a result, the Jetta's small overlap rating improved to “good,” compared with the “marginal” rating of earlier models.
