You are safe in A6ís hands

The Euro NCAP has awarded the new Audi A6 the maximum five-star rating for passive crash safety. The results for adult occupant protection in a frontal, rear or side collision and for child safety and pedestrian protection make the new Audi A6 one of the safest cars in its class. Founded in 1997, the NCAP evaluates the crash performance of new cars and is made up of international representatives from European transport ministries, automobile associations, insurers and consumer protection organizations.

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.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Isn't 5 stars really common these days? Even small cars like Renault Clio can get 5 stars.

Life is fated. Be it a tanker when time is up gotta report. All this safety rating is just sub conscious consoling oneself.
