brakes haul the TT down...with superb stability
Motor Week

all the good safety gear is standard
New York Times

The 2008 Audi TT has a long list of standard safety equipment, but no official crash tests have been performed on it.

Cars.com states that because the Audi TT is a "low-volume seller," chances are that it won't undergo any testing by the private Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which is generally more stringent than the federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As of this writing, neither has conducted any tests on the TT.

The Audi TT does come with standard front, side, and knee protection airbags as well as "adaptive" headlights that actually follow the front wheels for better visibility on dark roads, according to Kelley Blue Book. Stability control is also standard equipment.

The Auto Channel reports that the 2008 Audi TT's chassis structure is specially designed in a way that will channel the force of a frontal impact around the passenger compartment, which has been structurally reinforced.

TheCarConnection.com will revisit this rating if the Audi TT is crash-tested.

Conclusion

The 2008 Audi TT appears to have all safety bases covered, but no official test results are available.

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.
