To help you choose the one that's right for you, our team here at Audi Devon has created this guide to the Audi Top Safety Picks. Keep reading to learn more about the models that won big, and the criteria used to rate them.

Criteria for a Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluates vehicles and assigns them ratings based on how safe they are. They are categorized based on size. This is because larger vehicles like SUVs protect their passengers differently than smaller sedans.

There are two different safety awards given by the IIHS. The first is the TOP SAFETY PICK. To receive this, a vehicle must have good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint crash tests. It also needs an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. On top of that, the vehicle needs an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and good or acceptable headlights.

TOP SAFETY PICK+ is the second of the two awards. To receive this honor, a vehicle must receive good ratings in all crash tests. Plus, it needs advanced or superior front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.

Audi Top Safety Picks

There are three Audi models that received the TOP SAFETY PICK. Both the Audi A3 and the Audi A4 received good ratings in their crashworthiness tests. The headlights of both models received an acceptable rating. Plus, they both earned superior ratings for their front crash prevention. Adding to that, the A4 was given a good rating for its LATCH ease of use.

The Audi Q8 received the TOP SAFETY PICK award, as well. It scored good ratings on all the crash tests and for its LATCH ease of use. On top of that, its standard system was given a superior rating for front crash prevention.

When it comes to the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, it was the Audi A6 that brought that honor home. It met the criteria with good ratings for all the crash tests, as well as the headlights and the LATCH ease of use. Plus, it was given a superior rating for its front crash prevention system.

Audi Safety Systems

The Audi lineup is armed with Audi pre sense®. This suite of available features uses advanced technology to help keep you more aware out on the road. They can also help warn you of a potential collision and may even aid in avoiding it altogether.

Audi pre sense® basic and pre sense® front come standard on most models. Together, they can aid during emergencies by closing the windows and tightening the safety belts. Additionally, when a hazard is detected, visual and acoustic warnings are activated, and the brake system is pre-charged.

Other, more advanced systems are also available for most Audi models. Audi pre sense® city can detect vehicles and pedestrians and will initiate emergency braking at speeds of up to 52 MPH. Plus, Audi pre sense® rear uses rear sensors to scan the areas behind and to the sides of the vehicle, so you can have more peace of mind out on the road.
