Though the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) does not normally evaluate large SUV’s VW requested their newly redesigned Volkswagen Touareg be put through the standard battery of crash test scenarios. The IIHS was happy to oblige and the results showed that the Volkswagen Touareg is the only large SUV to earn TOP SAFETY PICK for 2011.
