The new generation of the Audi TT has been tested by Euro NCAP recently and the model in question has received a 4-star safety rating.
If you are concerned in safety when buying a new car than the Audi TT has probably let you down because you were most likely expecting a 5-star safety rating when tested by Euro NCAP and the third generation of the car has only received four stars. It seems that the lack of an autonomous emergency braking system and other similarly advanced technologies have stopped it from getting that extra star.
“Following last year’s controversy in the UK, Euro NCAP has taken the initiative to put the car to the test themselves. The Audi TT achieved four stars overall, amongst other reasons due to the lack of latest advanced technologies such as autonomous emergency braking. This important technology is becoming more common and is already available on many other models in the Audi range”, says the company in the official press release.
According to the safety specialists from Euro NCAP, the new Audi TT has scored 81 percent in Adult Occupant, 68 percent in Child Occupant, 82 percent in Pedestrian and just 64 percent in the Safety Assist category. The tested car was an Audi TT 2.0 TFSI Sport, FWD, RHD. We have to keep in mind that from 2015, new and updated test protocols have been adopted by Euro NCAP, which also includes the full-width rigid barrier frontal test, in which a small female driver and the rear seat passenger are in the car.
