The all-new Audi Q5 has been awarded five starts by Euro NCAP. The second gen model, in fact, is among the safest crossovers on sale today.
The new Q5 did well for occupant protection, child safety and pedestrian protection. Also contributing to the SUV’s rating were the driver assistance systems that are fitted as standard equipment. These include pre sense city, the emergency braking system that reacts to vehicles up ahead of the car and to pedestrians. The Q5 achieved top scores even though its overall weight has been reduced by up to 90kg.
Euro NCAP has been conducting comparative testing of new cars for crash safety since 1997. Its comprehensive range of test requirements are considerably more demanding than the specifications set by European legislators.
