2006 What Car? Safety Award

Email   small font medium font large font

Citroën has won the prestigious 2006 What Car? Safety Award in recognition of the industry-leading advances that the Company has made in setting new standards for occupant and pedestrian safety.

What Car?’s Safety Award is given to the manufacturer or organisation, which has done the most to improve road safety over the preceding 12 months. This year’s award is testament to Citroën’s commitment to provide market-leading levels of safety across its entire car range, from the robust C1 city car to the elegant C6 - the first car in the world to achieve a full 4-star Euro NCAP rating for pedestrian protection.

Citroën’s C6 flagship has broken new ground with its Euro NCAP crash test results*: maximum star ratings for pedestrian and occupant protection combine with an impressive 4-stars for child protection.  High tech safety features include an innovative Active Bonnet, to limit pedestrian injuries in the event of an impact, as well as a Lane Departure Warning System, Head-Up Display, automatic wipers and directional headlamps, all designed to keep the driver’s attention on the road ahead.

Steve Fowler, Group Editor of What Car?, comments: “Many car makers have improved their crash test performance or introduced technologies to help make our roads safer, but Citroën has done the most.  The highlight of an impressive year of achievement was the superb performance of the C6 executive saloon in the Euro NCAP crash tests."
