ANCAP Safety

The Audi A3 was first introduced in New Zealand in July 2021. It later launched in Australia from October 2021. This ANCAP safety rating currently only applies to 2WD variants of the GY series A3. AWD variants are unrated.

Dual frontal, side chest and side head-protecting airbags are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard on all variants.

Autonomous emergency braking (Car to Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), are standard.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
