The third generation Audi TT Coupe has received a four-star rating from Euro NCAP.

Despite being on sale for quite some time, the third-gen Audi TT hasn't been crash tested by Euro NCAP, up until now. It managed to grab four out of five stars and one of the reasons why the TT didn't get a five-star score is because it lacks an autonomous emergency braking system as well as other similar advanced safety technologies.

It's important to mention Euro NCAP has implemented from 2015 onwards new and updated test protocols and crash test dummies along with a full-width rigid barrier frontal test complementing the frontal offset deformable test. In this new full-width test, a small female driver and a rear seat passenger are in the car, representing a novelty for any European crash test.

Euro NCAP also tested the Renault Trafic and sister models Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro which all earned three stars. Starting next year, van crash testing will use "essentially identical" test protocols as the passenger vehicle testing.
