The scores awarded by the testers to the A6 for driver and passenger protection in frontal and side impact collisions earned the car the top rating of five stars. Children are also well protected in the new Audi A6. Audi commented that ensuring protection for pedestrians and cyclists is also an important concern for the company. A vehicle front end specially designed for this requirement helps to mitigate the consequences of a collision.
Audi added that active safety is just as important. For this reason, the Audi A6 offers an integral pedestrian protection system with standard daytime running lights and optional night vision assistant with a pedestrian warning. Additional driver assistance systems include Audi active lane assist or the all-weather light with adaptive headlight range control. The A6 also features the ďAudi pre sense plusĒ, which initiates partial braking if it sense that a collision is likely. If a collision is unavoidable, the partial braking is followed by a full deceleration that reduces the intensity of the impact.
