2010 Audi A8 Safety

9.0
Safety

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 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.

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."
