The new 2015 Audi A3 Sedan might be boring to look at, and the smart money says it is probably not very nice to drive either, but there is no denying it’s a brilliant product in terms of quality and features. The car just received its safety stripes from IIHS, bagging a Top Safety Pick Plus rating.
That rating is of course the highest 2014 safety rating available from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and means the A3 Sedan achieved “Good” rating in all the rigorous crash tests, including Moderate Overlap Front Test, Side Test, Roof Strength Test, Head Restraints Test, and Small Overlap Front.
This comes as no surprise to those who know about the advanced features of the 2015 Audi A3 Sedan. The car comes as standard with Audi pre sense basic system which senses when a crash is imminent and adjusts the onboard safety gear for optimum performance.
There is also an optional technology pack, which adds Audi active lane assist, Audi pre sense front and adaptive cruise control with stop and go. The A3 also introduces secondary collision brake assist and is the only vehicle to offer this system as a standard feature. The system automatically brakes the car after a collision so as to prevent a secondary collision.
The all-new Audi A3 sedan goes on sale in April 2014 and will be priced from $29,900.
