Audi A3 is Recognized with Top Safety Marks from IIHS and NHTSA

Audi earns top safety marks for the Audi A3 from two of the leading safety institutions in the United States.

At Audi Santa Barbara we understand that when it comes to buying cars, one of the top priorities is all about safety. Thanks to increasingly innovative technology, Audi cars are better equipped than ever before to prevent an accident or incident on the road before it ever happens. Audi is committed to implementing the highest safety standards and has been repeatedly recognized for their success in this endeavor.

Audi A3 Top Safety Pick +

A recent example of this is the Audi A3 which was named by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as a Top Safety Pick + for models with the pre sense front system. Thanks to the pre sense front system, the A3 is able to detect when an emergency situation or crash may be imminent based on the driver’s maneuverings style. The system then prepares the driver and passenger restraint systems for a possible collision.

In addition to pre sense, the Audi A3 is also available with Audi active lane assist and Audi adaptive cruise control with stop and go as part of the Advanced Technology Package. These systems work together with the driver to support safe driving habits and provide protection in the event of an emergency. It’s like having another set of eyes and ears on the road, watching for signs of danger and helping you stay safe.

The IIHS will only designate vehicles as a Top Safety Pick if they have available front crash-prevention systems in addition to good or acceptable ratings on the small overlap, front-crash test and a good rating in each of the other four safety evaluations. To earn top marks in every area as the Audi A3 did is a unique distinction.

5 Star Rating from the NHTSA for Audi A3

The Audi A3 also earned the highest crash test rating on consumer safety tests executed by the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).   On a scale of 1-5, the Audi A3 earned a five star designation which is the best that can be achieved.   The rating is based on crash protection and rollover safety results and tests beyond the national safety standards.

Some of the most prominent safety features of the Audi A3 include Audi pre sense basic and Audi secondary collision brake assist which automatically brakes the vehicle following a collision to prevent further collisions after the initial accident.
