Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, dummy readings indicated GOOD protection for all citical body areas of both child dummies, apart from the neck of the 10 year dummy where protection was rated as ADEQUATE.

In the side impact test, protection of all critical body areas was GOOD for both child dummies and maximum points were scored.

The Audi A1 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though one of the convertible seats in
rearward-facing mode and one of the booster seats could not be correctly installed in the centre rear position.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Audi A1 provided GOOD to MARGINAL protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with WEAK and POOR results recorded at the base of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance, while the bumper provided GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs.

The AEB system offered MARGINAL to GOOD performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios under both daylight and night-time conditions. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios, with collisions avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. The system’s overall performance was classified as GOOD.
