National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have given updated 2013 Audi A4 luxury sedan and Audi S4 performance sedan highest rating label where safety features are concerned. These two models possess state of the art front, side and rollover crash safety facilities thus meeting the stringent targets set by US Government.
According to NHTSA, both A4 and S4 vehicles deserve a 5 Star rating due to their performance in New Car Assessment Program which was created to provide customers with detailed and in-depth knowledge about crash protection and rollover safety facilities available in the new vehicles being introduced in the market. According to this rating, one star is awarded to worst performers while best and safest models are awarded five stars, as has been the case with Audi’s A4 and S4.
Where Audi is concerned, the company has always kept safety of passengers as a top priority. A4 and S4 were put to stringent tests and received top scores in what can be labeled as one of the most stringent crash testing programs in the world. Advanced driver assistance systems, accident prevention technologies and a sturdier body shell contribute to enhanced passenger safety along with front, side and side curtain airbags which is offered in these models.
