Citroen secures five British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards

16th June 2010 Print

Citroen has demonstrated, once again, that its car and van ranges offer some of the most secure vehicles on UK roads, by picking up a further five awards at the 2010 British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards (BIVSA). Citroen has now received a total of 25 accolades in the awards’ seven year history - more than any other vehicle manufacturer.

The Citroen C4 Exclusive dominated in the Small Family Car category, winning the award for the sixth year in a row. The C6 and C4 Picasso Exclusive both received top honours - in the Executive Car and Compact MPV classes respectively - for the fourth consecutive year.  The C5 won through in the Family Car category for the third year running - every year since the model’s launch.

In the Van categories - only the second year of inclusion at the awards - the Citroen C-Crosser Enterprise continued its perfect streak, picking up the award for best 4x4 Van for the second year running.

Security features, such as the use of laminated glass, has helped keep Citroen at the top of the BIVSA awards list.  The glass and plastic film construction enables the vehicle windows to maintain their integrity, even after numerous blows, keeping occupants and contents safe and secure.  The C-Crosser Enterprise is also fitted with protective side window panels to guard against ‘smash and grab’ opportunists.

Marc Raven, Communications Director of Citroen UK Ltd, commented; “Our continuing success at these important awards underlines Citroen’s position as a leading producer of safe and reassuringly secure vehicles.  Thanks to Citroen’s continuing efforts in improving its security technology, drivers can put their trust - and possessions - securely in our models.”
