The new Audi A4 has been awarded a safety rating in the latest round of the Euro NCAP programme.

Euro NCAP has awarded the vehicle five stars for passive safety. The results achieved by the A4 are for adult protection in frontal and side crashes as well as child and pedestrian protection.

The data collected on the A4 for driver and passenger safety in frontal and side crashes earned the vehicle five stars, the best rating possible. The Audi A4 offers good protection for children as well: the test results for child safety are also high, with four stars earned.

For pedestrian protection the A4 scored two of four possible stars.

The Euro NCAP programme consist of international representatives from European ministries of transport, automotive clubs, insurance companies and consumer protection agencies.

The new A4 is due to be launched in South Africa in June 2008.
