SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

‘Good,’ frontal offset; ‘good,’ side impact, ‘good,’ rear impact, ‘good,’ side impact; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars Overall; four stars Frontal Crash; five stars Side Crash; five stars Rollover
NHTSA




The occupant safety of the 2012 Audi A4 has been shown by a wide range of crash tests to be among the better vehicles in this class--and active and passive safety features are well represented.

The current A4 has been crash-tested by both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and the news is good. In IIHS tests it earned the highest ratings possible in all tests, and it's a Top Safety Pick. And in the new, revised federal tests introduced last year, 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.

Safety options include a rearview camera, blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems, and adaptive cruise control. Its available rear thorax bags are noteworthy as well.

Even though the backseat has three headrests that could potentially get in the way of rearward vision, we've found visibility to be quite good.

Conclusion

The 2012 Audi A4 is one of the safer picks in its class, as verified with some impressive crash-test scores.

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.
