Top 15: Most Secure cars

Each year the country's most secure cars are honoured at the British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards.

The roll call for 2012 included the Beetle, Phaeton and Sharan amongst its category winners, whilst Nissan scooped the LCV equivalent with the Nissan Primastar winning outright in the Heavy Van category.

Since its launch in 2004, BIVSA has come to be recognised as the pinnacle for vehicle manufacturers in terms of recognition of their work in making vehicles more secure and reducing vehicle crime. Supported by the UK Government, The Department for Transport and other key stakeholders, the awards represent an opportunity for manufacturers to demonstrate to their customers the efforts they are making in minimising the disruption and anxiety caused by becoming a victim of crime.

In the nine years of the BIVSA awards Thatcham have presented over 150 awards to nearly 20 different manufacturers and thanks to their efforts, alongside law enforcement, government and the insurance industry, vehicle crime has fallen by approximately one third in that period.
