The 2015 model-year Audi A3 and S3 sedans each earned a 5-Star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program – the highest crash test rating available.

The 5-Star rating complements the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+ rating that the Audi A3 sedan, when equipped with Audi pre sense front, received earlier this year.

The Audi A3 and S3 offer several advanced technology features, including the standard Audi pre sense basic system that helps detect when an emergency maneuver is being made and prepares the vehicle and its occupant restraint systems in advance of a possible collision.

The A3 also introduces secondary collision brake assist and offers this system as a standard feature. The system automatically brakes the car after a collision to avoid a secondary collision with nearby or oncoming traffic.
