THE new Audi A6 achieved the top rating in the Euro NCAP, scoring on all relevant criteria: protection of adult passengers, child safety, pedestrian safety, and driver assistance systems.
The actively supporting safety systems — which include automatic emergency braking systems for city traffic and for highways—are included in the overall NCAP assessment with a weighting of 20 per cent.
In the new Audi A6, a large number of assist systems make driving even safer, more convenient and more relaxing. The Audi pre sense rear (standard for Brunei) enables better passenger protection when an impending rear impact is detected. Other highlights include the Lane Change assist which detects cars in blind spots, Exit Warning and Rear Cross Traffic alert system.
Behind the assistance systems in the new Audi A6 is a portfolio of sensors that ideally complement one another in terms of their respective properties. All sensor data are incorporated in the central driver assistance controller (zFAS), which continuously generates a differentiated image of the surroundings. As a result of this central data fusion, the assist systems work even more precisely than in the previous model.
The new Audi A6 is also tops when it comes to passenger protection. Its body consists of an intelligent mix of aluminium and steel, with hot-stamped steel components forming the ultra-high-strength backbone in the passenger compartment. With its high rigidity, the body lays the foundations for the vehicle’s high crash safety, sporty and precise handling and acoustic comfort on board.
