2011 Audi A3 Safety

9.0
Safety

The 2011 Audi A3 comes with all the safety features you'd expect to see in this class, along with a few more: Stability control, anti-lock brakes, front-seat side-impact, full-length head-curtain airbags, and rear side-thorax bags—unusual in this class of vehicle—are available.

Additionally, it has some safety-ratings bragging rights. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given it top 'good' ratings in all of its categories—including the new roof strength test—and named it a 2011 Top Safety Pick. The A3 hasn't been rated by the federal government, though.

The 2011 Audi A3 promises to be one of the safest compact hatchbacks or wagons, with solid safety equipment and top-notch crash tests.
