lane assist annoys, "except when going cross-country on too little sleep
Motor Trend

Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested the 2010 A8.

A vast list of safety features earns TheCarConnection.com's relatively high safety rating. That list includes dual front airbags; separate front and rear side airbags; side-curtain airbags; front knee airbags; front active head restraints; and electronic stability control. All-wheel drive is standard, as are LED daytime running lights, according to Cars.com.

The older A8 does not lack for advanced safety features; an optional Technology Package includes a rearview camera, as well as lane-departure and blind-spot alert systems. Audi's "lane assist" system causes the steering wheel to vibrate when the vehicle begins to wander; Motor Trend recommends turning off this feature "except when going cross-country on too little sleep...it's amusing at first, then more annoying than helpful."

Conclusion

The 2010 Audi A8 and A8L have not yet been crash-tested, but have a complete set of safety features and high-tech safety options on call.

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.
