9.0
Safety
The 2011 Audi A4 has a very impressive level of occupant protection, both with respect to active and passive safety.

Both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have crash-tested the 2011 Audi A4. In IIHS testing, the A4 earns the highest ratings possible in all tests, and it's a Top Safety Pick. And in the new, revised federal tests for 2011, the A4 gets four stars overall but five stars for side impact and an even more impressive five-star score in the new Side Pole test, which simulates a sideways collision against a tree or utility pole.

Safety equipment includes standard airbags all around, as well as traction and stability control. Safety options include a rearview camera, blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems, and adaptive cruise control.

The 2011 Audi A4 has a nearly perfect set of safety credentials, including top-notch crash-test results. Available side-thorax airbags are noteworthy.

Visibility in both the wagon and sedan is quite good, even with the backseat's three headrests in the upright position.
