Details
Front impact
There was negligible distortion of the passenger compartment in the frontal test. Adapative airbags and seatbelts tailor the timing and the degree of restraint to suit the size of the occupant and the severity of the impact. In this case, the both the driver and passenger were well protected.

Side impact
The A4 scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests.

Child occupant
The A4 scored maximum points for its protection of the 1½ year old infant and the 3 year old child based on dummy responses in the full scale tests. There was no label clearly warning of the dangers of using a rearward-facing child restraint in the front passenger seat but the presence of ISOFIX markings was clearly indicated in the rear outboard seats.

Pedestrian
The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs but the front edge of the bonnet scored none. The bonnet was rated as predominantly poor for the protection it offered to the head of a struck adult.

New details
In frontal collision, both the driver and passenger are well protected. The deformation of the passenger compartment was negligible. Also in the A4 offers good lateral collision protection. A child sits comfortably in the A4, witness the score of 84 percent. The bumper of the Audi offers good pedestrian protection, but the hood achieves any point in terms of pedestrian safety.
