2014 Audi A6 Safety

9.0
Safety

The Audi A6 has some of the best crash-test scores among sedans, of any price.

The IIHS hasn't put the A6 through its small-overlap front-impact test as of yet, but in all other tests it gets “good” ratings.

The IIHS calls the A6 a Top Safety Pick, and Audi now makes blind-spot monitors more widely available.

The NHTSA tested the A6 for the first time in more than a decade, and gave it 5 stars in all categories.

Along with the usual safety standards, the A6 comes with free Bluetooth, and most models have all-wheel drive. All A6s at Prestige trim and above have blind-spot monitors.

Active-safety options include a rearview camera, which really should be standard by now; parking sensors; a head-up display; adaptive cruise control; and night vision.

Outward vision is fine in the A6, helped along by big windows and a low beltline. The short trunk makes the rearview camera even more convenient, and a new corner-camera display helps in very tight parking situations.
