Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested the 2010 Audi A5/Cabriolet. However, the new Audi A4 has a similar body structure and receives top ratings in crash tests from NHTSA and the IIHS; TheCarConnection.com's editors award its safety score based on the shared mechanicals and will revisit the score when more data is available.

The 2010 Audi A5 and Cabriolet get some differentiated safety systems for their unique missions. The coupe sports eight standard airbags, as well as traction and stability control; the Cabriolet lacks curtain airbags, but comes with larger seat-mounted side airbags and pop-up bars that activate in the event of a rollover. The stability and traction control help keep the A5 in line, but according to Kelley Blue Book, either feature "can be switched off" for more sporting drives.

A lane-departure warning system, a blind-spot warning system, radar-based cruise control, adaptive headlamps, and rear parking sensors are options on the A5 lineup.

As for visibility, it's "surprisingly good in all directions" in the A5 Coupe, notes ConsumerGuide. The optional rearview camera and reverse parking sensors mitigate any difficulties drivers may have with the A5 Coupe's somewhat thick roof pillars and small rear windshield.

Conclusion

The 2010 Audi A5 / Cabriolet hasn't been crash-tested, but earns a high safety score based on equipment and commonality with the highly rated Audi A4 sedan.

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.
