The Audi A3 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in May 2013. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants, including the e-tron variant.
The left-hand-drive European 3 door hatch was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the Euro NCAP results apply to all Australasian variants.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains) and a driver knee airbag are standard. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is available as an option. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.
