2012 Audi A6 CRASH TEST

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. The A6 is fitted with Audi's adaptive frontal airbags and seat belts. Sensors in the front seat rails detect whether an occupant is positioned close to the steering wheel (a small driver, for example) or more rearwards. The restraint system is tuned accordingly, using special vents in the airbags and seat belt load limiters adapted to the appropriate occupant size. In the frontal test, the system worked well and both the driver and passenger's heads were well protected. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the dummies' knees and femurs. Audi showed that the car would provide a similar level of protection to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, the dummy indicated good protection of all body regions. However, the driver's door was found to be unlatched after the test and the car was penalised for this. In the pole test, the car provided marginal protection of the driver's chest. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
