The TT received a decent four star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests and all models get four airbags as standard along with stability and traction control. Audi recognise that this might be top of a thief's hit list so have made it very secure. Sturdy roll hoops add protection in the case of the car rolling over and add a nice visual touch.
