At Audi Cary, we’ve spent a lot of time lately talking about the all-new 2015 Audi A3. Who can blame us? It is a brilliantly designed car that hosts a bevy of state-of-the-art technologies packaged in the luxury you expect from the finest automaker. This fantastically built machine is the result of an uncompromised commitment to excellence – as further proven by the IIHS.
The 2015 Audi A3 received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick rating; furthermore, the A3 model stocked with the optional forward collision warning system earned a Top Safety Pick + rating – a first for the German car manufacturer.
Why the difference? The IIHS recently updated its criteria to include active safety technologies.
In order to earn the IIHS’ top rating, a vehicle must score “Good” in moderate overlap front, side, roof, and head restraint tests, as well as “Good” in the difficult small overlap front crash test. To earn the TSP + award, a car must also possess a front crash prevention system. The 2015 Audi A3 performed flawlessly.
Consumers who desire the front crash prevention system must upgrade their A3 with Audi’s Advanced Technology package that also installs active lane assist and adaptive cruise control.
There are many reasons to feel excited for the release of the 2015 Audi A3, and you can be a part of it. On Thursday, April 3rd, 2014, at the North Hills Commons starting at 5:30 P.M., we are hosting a launch event for our all-new entry level sedan.
