The 2018 Audi 
Q5 and Audi Q7 have been awarded five-star safety ratings - the highest possible ratings - from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). To achieve this, both the Q5 and Q7 were tested under NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program. The overall score is based on frontal and side crash tests, as well as an evaluation of rollover resistance. Vehicles with a rating of five stars indicate the highest safety rating.

The 2018 Q5 and Q7 feature driver assistance systems designed to help drivers navigate the road and traffic with increased ease and peace of mind. Standard Audi pre sense basic can help prepare the vehicle for impact in the case of an impending collision by closing the side windows and panoramic sunroof and pretensioning the front safety belts. Additionally, standard Audi pre sense city helps detects stationary vehicles and pedestrians, and at speeds of up to 80km/h, can initiate full braking when a potential collision is detected.

With the NHTSA five-star rating, the Q5 is the most awarded Audi sport utility vehicle of the year. The Audi Q5 was named a 2017 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, and earned a 'superior' rating for front crash prevention when equipped with the available driver assistance package and standard front crash prevention system. The Audi Q7 was also named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, earning 'good' ratings in all five crashworthiness evaluations.
