Top 10 Hardest Cars to Steal

Mr. Christopher from Gwinnett Subaru with some great news for Audi and Subaru owners (and even Hyundai). Auto club RACV has tested a huge breadth of vehicles and has announced its findings of vehicles that were the most difficult to steal. The results were very interesting. The scores range from 0 to 120, with 120 being the highest a vehicle could score against being broken into, stolen and then “re-birthed”.

Of all the vehicles tested, Audi and Subaru faired the best making it extremely difficult for thieves to get away with doing any of the three. The absolute worst vehicles were from Honda and Nissan although both of them faired incredibly well on the fuel efficiency side. The highest score out of all the breeds was the Audi S5 Coupe that walked away with an astonishing 117 points out of 120 scoring 100% theft resistance score. Almost all of Audi’s models scored in the 100′s. So who were the top 10 regardless of size or class? All of the top 10 scores with exception of only one were in the Large category;

  1. Audi S5 Coupe – Score 117 (Large Category)
  2. Audi R8 Coupe – Score 115.5 (Large Category)
  3. Porsche Cayman S Coupe – Score 113 (Large Category)
  4. BMW 335i Coupe – Score 112.5 (Large Category)
  5. Audi A3 3.2 Quattro 5 Door Hatch – Score 112 (Small-Medium Category)
  6. Subaru Impreza WRX 5 Door Hatch - Score 107 (Large Category)
  7. Subaru Impreza STi 5 Door Hatch – Score 107 (Large Category)
  8. Audi TT Coupe – Score 105.5 (Large Category)
  9. Mini Cooper S 3 Door Hatch - 105.5 (Large Category)
  10. Tie – FPV FG Ute and FPV Sedan - Score 104.5 (Large Category)
