Audi Offers Leading Safety Technology

This is great news for drivers looking for a new car that provides the best in safety technology. Audi has long been a leader in automotive technology and these awards further confirm their dedication to occupant safety.   To determine the ranking, the IIHS tests the car based on two aspects of safety including how well a vehicle protects the occupants during a crash (crashworthiness) and technology that can prevent a crash or reduce the severity (crash avoidance and mitigation). With the Driver Assistance package, the vehicles earned a “good” rating in all crash categories including Small Overlap Front Crash and front crash prevention. The Driver Assistance package includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Audi active lane assist
  • High beam assist
  • Audi parking system plus (available on the Audi Q5)

In addition to offering leading performance, luxury design, and meticulous craftsmanship, Audi is dedicated to providing outstanding safety features and driver assistance programs in each of the newest models and the Audi A3, A6, and Q5 further exemplify this commitment to safety excellence.
