Video – Audi Q7 earns maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating

The second generation Audi Q7 has been awarded with a five-star rating by the Euro New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) during the recent series of crash tests. It’s one of the safest cars in this segment in terms of adult protection in frontal and side impact collisions, as well as when it comes to pedestrian protection and child safety.

Moreover, it won the “Euro NCAP Advanced” title for the multi-collision brake assist system as well as for the Audi pre sense basic which is another system that can detect an imminent collision at speeds of up to 85 km/h (52.8 mph) and when this happens, it automatically closes the sunroof and windows and also tensions the seatbelts. The system will gradually alert the driver and can even initiate full deceleration, thus avoiding crashes if the car’s speed does not exceed 40 km/h (24.9 mph) when the hazard occurs.

Audi mentions they developed the all-new Q7 to provide a high level of safety for children and the new SUV can host up to six child seats, including on the rearmost ones that have been certified for ECE Group III child seats for kids weighing up to 36 kg (79.4 lbs).
