2015 Audi R8 Safety

9.0
Safety

It's not uncommon for the agencies that crash-test cars and evaluate vehicle safety to skip high-performance, low-volume sports cars, and the Audi R8 lands firmly in this category. However, its suite of modern safety features and its excellent engineering earn it high marks in our book.

Audi makes lots of safety gear standard. Every R8 has knee airbags, all-wheel drive, and stability control with a built-in sport mode.

There are no crash-test results for the R8, but its aluminum structure is a sign of strength.

What they should add is standard parking sensors and a standard rearview camera. Rearward vision is abysmal in the R8, and those features could help in preventing accidents.
