ARLINGTON, VA – Audi became the first manufacturer ever to earn two “double best pick” rat-ings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) after its front and side crash-test results for large luxury cars were announced. The Audi A6 earned the “double best pick” rating after it achieved “best pick” designations for its performance in the recently conducted IIHS side-impact crash test and the frontal offset crash test. Just last month, the Audi A4 received a “double best pick” rating amongst mid-size sedans for the same tests. Only four cars ever have received this rating, two are Audis. The new Audi A6 sedan went on sale in the U.S. last November, and the Audi A4 sedan went on sale in the U.S. this past March.
