No A7 has been crash-tested yet, by either the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It's unlikely the luxury hatchback, given its low sales volume, ever will be tested -- but since it's related to the Audi A6, we're scoring it based on that car's relatively strong crash-test performance.

The A7 lineup lacks for nothing in terms of standard and available safety features. Among the usual standard airbags and stability control, there's also an option for rear seat side airbags. Bluetooth is standard, as is a rearview camera--and this year, Audi's blind-spot monitor system is available on the base model, and standard on every A7 at the Prestige level and above.

Other high-tech safety options include adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, and an Audi pre sense system that sounds a warning chime if it's anticipating a collision.

Also available on the A7 and S7 is a special night vision assistant can highlight objects, people, or animals ahead in yellow or red, and give audible warnings, based on thermal imaging technology. The corner-view system added to the A7's options list for the 2013 model year is now included in the Driver Assistance package, an option on all models.

Conclusion

Active-safety options about, but only the IIHS has scored the A7 for crash safety.

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.
