The Audi A6 has been awarded with a maximum five-star rating in the South Korean KNCAP crash tests. The German executive sedan showed a very good crash safety and pedestrian protection which makes it one of the safest models in its class. This news comes after the model received high scores in the Euro NCAP and U.S. NCAP crash tests and now the South Korean authorities responsible for conducting crash tests have concluded the A6 is a very safe car.
The South Korean KNCAP evaluates how cars withstand during frontal, side and rear collisions and also assess braking and rolling behavior. Moreover, the program checks the pedestrian protection offered in case of an accident. The Audi A6 actually achieved the highest score in the four frontal and side-impact collisions as a result of a very low load on the driver and front passenger. The occupants were also very well protected in a rear-end collision thanks to the specially developed seats.
The Audi A6 has been designed in such a way so that it would meet the stringent requirements concerning pedestrian protection, helping to mitigate the effects caused by a collision on pedestrians. During the South Korean KNCAP, the Audi A6 received a top score in the braking performance test on wet and dry surfaces.
