IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn’t tested the 2013 Audi A3 since more stringent crash-safety test standards were instituted last year, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has. The IIHS gave the A3 its highest rating of ‘good’ for crash tests covering frontal offset, side, and roof impacts.

The A3 comes with eight airbags: not only front driver and passenger bags, but front-seat side-impact, full-length head-curtain airbags, and rear side-thorax bags as well. Stability control, anti-lock brakes, and a host of other electronic systems are standard, and the optional quattro all-wheel drive adds a measure of traction for winter driving.

Other safety features include three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners, pinch protection for passenger compartment windows, and one thing we wish all carmakers would provide: a hill-hold assist that locks the brakes when the car stops on a slope, to prevent it from rolling backwards.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Audi A3 comes with excellent safety gear and the highest rating from the IIHS.

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.
