We study the derivation of second order macroscopic traffic models from kinetic descriptions. In particular, we recover the celebrated Aw-Rascle model as the hydrodynamic limit of an Enskog-type kinetic equation out of a precise characterisation of the microscopic binary interactions among the vehicles. Unlike other derivations available in the literature, our approach unveils the multiscale physics behind the Aw-Rascle model. This further allows us to generalise it to a new class of second order macroscopic models complying with the Aw-Rascle consistency condition, namely the fact that no wave should travel faster than the mean traffic flow.
