2020 Audi A6 Allroad Wagon Aces All Crash Safety Tests

Audi’s soft-road A6 Allroad wagon is a 2020 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick Plus, the agency’s highest award. The 2020 A6 Allroad earned the best possible rating in all six of IIHS’ crashworthiness tests as well as in headlight and front crash prevention technology testing.

The six crashworthiness tests are small overlap front driver side, small overlap front passenger side, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint and seats. In each test, the A6 Allroad earned a score of good on a scale of good, acceptable, marginal or poor. A score of good is required in all six tests in order to be eligible for the Top Safety Pick Plus distinction.

Additionally, a vehicle must have as at least optional equipment a front crash prevention system that earns a score of advanced or superior on a scale of superior, advanced or basic. The A6 Allroad’s standard system earned a score of superior.

Lastly, a vehicle must have standard headlights rated as either acceptable or good on the good, acceptable, marginal or poor scale. The A6 Allroad’s standard headlights earned a score of good.

In IIHS’ large luxury cars category, the A6 Allroad is unsurprisingly joined as a Top Safety Pick Plus by its 2020 Audi A6 sedan sibling. The only other Top Safety Pick Plus designees in the category include the 2020 Genesis G70, G80 and G90 sedans. The 2020 Audi A7 is the lone Top Safety Pick, the second-highest IIHS designation.
