Volkswagens should never be underestimated, especially concerning their safety. And the brand proved this when the 2016 Passat was named IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus.

On the 2016 Passat, there’s new front and rear styling that has given it that top safety score. The mid-sized sedan received the top score of “good” across all areas of testing. These wins include the small front overlap crash, the most difficult testing area, as well as an advanced rating for front crash prevention.

The Passat earned the important “plus” by receiving good ratings in all crash tests as well as superior rating for front crash prevention. The new Passat’s front crash prevention system is to thank for these wins. Front Assist, a forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking, is standard on SE models and above.

The Passat isn’t the only Volkswagon on the list of vehicle to the Top Safety Pick Plus List. It joins the 2016 Golf, Golf SportWagon, Golf GTI and Jetta. Clearly, Volkswagons are proving that they are made to be safe and reliable.
