Sharp new pricing, a longer list of standard equipment and now the new 2013 Audi A3 can add a 5-star safety rating to its list of credentials.

A left-hand-drive, three-door Audi A3 scored an impressive 36.41 points out of a possible 37 in a Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) safety test.

The Euro NCAP test also satisfied the requirements of the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), leading the organisation to award the car a 5-star safety rating.

In the frontal offset crash, driver chest protection was rated as “acceptable” and passenger leg protection was also “acceptable”.

All other injury values were rated as “good”, including head protection in the side-pole test.

Dual front, side and curtain airbags are standard fitment as well as a driver knee airbag. Anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard and advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.

The 2013 Audi A3 has only just hit the market in Australia, priced from $35,600. The 5-star ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants.
