The 2012 Audi A7 hasn't yet been crash-tested by any of the major U.S. (or European) safety agencies, and it likely won't be, due to its low anticipated production numbers.

There's nothing missing here with respect to safety, though; and relative to other luxury sedans, the A7 actually has more available high-tech features that might help you completely avoid an accident altogether. In addition to electronic stability control and strong four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, the A7 comes with emergency braking assist and strong xenon HID headlamps. Also on offer are adaptive cruise control and an Audi pre sense system that sounds a warning chime, to potentially avoid an accident, or helps out with braking if it decided a collision is imminent.

Two other features available in the A7 include a blind spot system, which helps spot vehicles in blind-spot areas and warns you with lights in the side mirrors, and a night vision assistant that uses thermal imaging and can highlight objects in yellow or red, with audible warnings. 


The A7 isn't just eye candy; safety clearly counts, and some of the options go well beyond airbags and occupant protection.

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.
