Audi TT gets four-star rating in ANCAP crash tests

The third generation Audi TT has received a four-star rating in the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) crash tests.

It was introduced earlier this year in Australia and New Zealand, so time has come for the coupe to go through the ANCAP crash testing and unsurprisingly it scored four starts just like it did when it was tested by Euro NCAP a few months ago. It’s a rather disappointing result for a brand new model from Audi since we’ve come to expect a full five-star rating from anything that comes out from Ingolstadt.

ANCAP used a coupe version with the 2.0-liter turbo gasoline engine working together with a front-wheel drive layout. They used a vehicle built from June this year when Audi Australia added more safety equipment as standard. It comes fitted with kit such as dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags, along with emergency brake assist, electronic brake distribution and advanced seat belt reminders – all of which are standard.
