A healthy dose of standard safety features and strong crash-test scores for the A6 Audi 2008 impressed reviewers and TheCarConnection.com.

Edmunds points out that the "A6 performed admirably in crash testing done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, earning the top rating of 'Good' in both frontal-offset and side-impact tests." In fact, the 2008 Audi A6 did so well that the IIHS handed the sedan a Top Safety Pick award for "good performance in front, side, and rear tests and standard electronic stability control."

The Audi A6 2008 raises the bar in terms of safety, but the feds haven’t tested it yet.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not tested the A6.

The admirable list of standard safety features available on the 2008 Audi A6 includes "Antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system, a tire pressure monitoring system and a first-aid kit," according to Cars.com.

Edmunds notes "rear-seat side airbags are optional," and Audi offers safety options like a lane-departure warning system and adaptive cruise control for an additional measure of safety.
