The passenger compartment of the e-tron remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Audi showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection was good for all critical parts of the body, for both dummies. In the side barrier test, protection was good and the car scored maximum points. However, in the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection for the chest, with good protection of other critical body areas. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all scenarios.

CHILD OCCUPANT
Comments
In the frontal offset test, the e-tron provided good or adequate protection to all body areas of both the 6 and 10 year dummies. In the side barrier test, protection was good for all areas and the car scored maximum points in this test. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the e-tron is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.

VULNERABLE ROAD USERS
Comments
The protection provided to the head of a struck pedestrian was good or adequate over almost the entire surface of the bonnet, with poor results recorded only at the base of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs. Protection of the pelvis was more mixed, with areas of good and poor protection. The AEB system can detect vulnerable road users as well as other vehicles, and performed well in tests of its reaction to pedestrians and to cyclists.

SAFETY ASSIST
Comments
The AEB system performed well in tests of its performance at highway speeds. The standard speed assistance system consists of a driverset speed limiter. An additional speed limit information function is available as an option, which recognises the local speed limit and present the information to the driver. A lane support system helps to prevent inadvertent drifting out of lane and also intervenes in some more critical situations. The front and rear seats are equipped with a seatbelt reminder.
