The new Audi models A5 and Q2 have each been awarded top grades in the Euro NCAP test, confirming their place among the safest vehicles in the competition. This is true for both adult and child safety, for pedestrian protection and for other safety systems.
Emergency braking systems were introduced to the evaluation procedure in 2016. The Audi Q2 is equipped as standard with the emergency braking assistant as part of Audi pre sense front. The system examines whether other vehicles or pedestrians are in the path of the vehicle. If a collision is imminent, it warns the driver and if necessary initiates automatic emergency braking.
The new Audi A5 Coupé and A5 Sportback models were also awarded the top grade of five stars by the examiners. Both models offer high levels of safety for adults and children, as well as good pedestrian protection.
