The 2015 Audi A3 and S3 have received a 5-star safety rating after being crash tested recently.
If safety is what your main concern when buying a new car and you were looking into the 2015 Audi A3 or on the more expensive S3, you can go ahead and place an order because the two models have recently received a 5-star safety rating, during a crash test session. These two are the only European premium compact sedans tested which managed to receive a 5-star NHTSA.
“The Audi A3 and S3 exemplify the best in a long line of Audi vehicles designed to be premium, sporty and above all safe. Both vehicles establish a high safety standard with new and innovative features designed to help protect vehicle occupants as well as others on the road”, said the director of product planning with Audi of America, Filip Brabec.
Some of the features which assured the two models’ rating included the standard pre sense, detecting an emergency maneuver and preparing its occupants in case of a possible collision, or the secondary collision brake assist, also offered as standard, which is applying the brakes after a collision to prevent a second crash.
