2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick+¹
Don’t just rest assured; drive that way too. Engineered to help protect occupants in real-world crash situations, nine VW models were named 2013 IIHS Top Safety Picks. And the Passat garnered an extra level of distinction by becoming an IIHS Top Safety Pick+¹. You can’t buy that kind of street cred. But you can engineer it.
- ¹ Applies to 2013 models built after Oct. 2012. Top Safety Pick+ based on 31 mph side-impact crash test, 40 mph moderate overlap frontal crash test, 20 mph rear-impact test, roof strength testing, and the availability of ESC. To qualify for the 2013 Top Safety Pick+, vehicles must earn good ratings in the four evaluations, with no less than an “acceptable” rating in the new fifth, 40-mph small overlap frontal crash test. Tests performed by the IIHS. For details, visit www.iihs.org. See vw.com for more information on safety features.
