Five Stars for Audi A3 and S3 sedans in government crash test

The all-new 2015 Audi A3 and S3 sedans have earned a 5-Star overall crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program – the highest crash test rating available. The 5-star rating complements the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating the Audi A3 sedan (when equipped with Audi pre sense front) received earlier this year. The Audi A3 sedan is the only European premium compact segment model tested to receive a 5-star NHTSA  and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ rating

The NCAP 5-Star designation is limited only to vehicles that provide the greatest amount of crash protection and rollover safety beyond what is required by federal law. Vehicles are rated on a scale of one to five stars, one being the lowest rating and five being the highest.

“The Audi A3 and S3 exemplify the best in a long line of Audi vehicles designed to be premium, sporty and above all safe,” said Filip Brabec, Director, Product Planning, Audi of America.
