The 2011 Audi TT gets a relatively lofty safety score from our reviewers, though official crash-test results haven't yet been published.

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has changed the criteria it uses to gauge the structural performance of cars in crash tests for the new model year. So has the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). Neither agency has issued crash tests in recent years, either.

However, the Audi TT has the brand's strong reputation for safety behind it, as well as a long list of standard safety features. All TT coupes and convertibles have standard hill-hold assist, anti-lock brakes, side airbags, and electronic stability control.

Available on all versions is a package that includes rear parking sensors, though a rearview backup camera is not available. Neither are blind-spot alert systems, lane-departure warning systems, or other electronic safety aids that are becoming more widespread in even mid-priced luxury cars.

Bluetooth is a welcome addition to the standard equipment list--our editors consider it a safety feature since talking and driving without a handsfree connection has become illegal in more than two dozen states.

 

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi TT scores well for safety despite the lack of formal crash-test data.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
