Safety ratings have changed in the A6 lineup since it was revamped for the 2009 model year.

Formerly a Top Safety Pick as rated by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), the 2010 A6 still scores "good" ratings for front and side impact safety. The organization has changed its ratings system to account for roof-crush safety, but hasn't tested the A6 against the new standards. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has not tested the latest A6 lineup.

Dual front, side, and curtain airbags are standard, along with anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, active headrests, and tire-pressure monitors.

A blind-spot alert system is optional, along with active cruise control, a lane-departure warning system, parking sensors, and a rearview camera. Visibility is mostly good.

More Opinions:
Cars.com: A6 has "a first-aid kit"
Edmunds: "rear-seat side airbags are optional"

Conclusion

With excellent IIHS crash-test ratings and plentiful safety features, the 2010 Audi A6 and S6 provide good security for drivers.

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.
