Audi A4: Leading in the field of active safety with Euro NCAP Advanced award for Side Assist

Audi A4 Side Assist

The Audi A4 with Side Assist is leading in the field of active safety and has been awarded with the Euro NCAP Advanced.

The most important European vehicle safety tester, “European New Car Assessment Programme” (Euro NCAP), has presented the Audi A4 with its coveted “Euro NCAP Advanced” award at the Paris Motor Show. Following the five star rating in the regular “Euro NCAP” crash test program, the Audi A4 has now been rewarded for its Audi side assist lane change assistant. The crash testers are all agreed: The active assistance system supports the driver and can help to prevent accidents.

At speeds of 30 km/h (18.64 mph) and above, Audi side assist operates with two radar sensors in the rear that observe what is happening behind the car. Should another vehicle be moving on the adjacent lane or approaching at high speed, a yellow LED indicator in the outside mirror housing lights up. If the driver still activates the turn signal to change lanes, the indicator becomes brighter and begins to flash quickly – a signal that is hard to miss.
