2016 Audi A3 — Top Safety Pick +
Front Crash Prevention: Advanced (3 points)
Annual Insurance Costs: $1,607 – $1,747
Audi’s entry-level sedan in the United States, the A3 is one of five midsize luxury cars to be rated a Top Safety Pick + by the IIHS. The A3 earned a score of Advanced (3 points) when equipped with the brand’s pre sense front system, which means it was able to avoid collisions at up to 12 mph. Using radar and camera systems, the A3 detects a potential collision and provides warning signals that become more urgent. If no driver input occurs, the system will continue to increase braking, eventually reaching maximum braking. At the same time, seat belts are pulled taut when it is clear that a crash will not be avoided. The A3 also offers secondary collision brake assist that automatically applies the brakes after a collision to avoid any further collisions.
Additional Costs: NA
