The new Audi A5 and Q2 have each been awarded a full five star rating in the Euro New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) test, confirming their place among the safest vehicles in the segment. 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 Audi A5 also features an extensive range of other assistance systems like Collision Avoidance Assist and Turn Assist. While Collision Avoidance Assist helps the driver to drive around an obstacle, Turn Assist monitors oncoming traffic when turning across the flow of traffic at low speed. In a dangerous situation, it brakes the vehicle to a complete stop, if necessary, to prevent a turn when there is oncoming traffic.

The Euro NCAP has been investigating the crash performance of new car models since it was established in 1997. In order to simulate real life accident conditions better, the consortium continually tightens crash safety requirements.
