  • All-new Audi Q5 is a hit with Euro NCAP



    Premium Audi SUV secures five-star crash test score


    • Five-star Euro NCAP rating for the highly successful Audi SUV
    • Top marks for occupant and pedestrian protection
    • Extensive range of driver assistance systems available

    The new Q5 is the latest Audi to be awarded five stars by Euro NCAP, the organisationís highest possible rating. The top score means the second generation of the bestselling SUV is among the safest cars in its class.

    The Audi Q5 showed off its strengths in every type of test, scoring points for occupant protection, child safety and pedestrian protection. Also contributing to the SUVís rating were the driver assistance systems that are fitted as standard equipment Ė including pre sense city, the emergency braking system that reacts to vehicles up ahead of the car and to pedestrians.


    The Q5 achieved excellent values for crash safety, even though its overall weight has been reduced by up to 90 kg. The outstanding NCAP test results underscore the high standards the brand with the four rings upholds in the areas of active and passive safety, and in lightweight construction.


    Euro NCAP has been conducting comparative testing of new cars for crash safety since 1997. The testing organisationís membership comprises a number of European transport ministries and automobile clubs, insurance companies and consumer protection groups. Its comprehensive range of test requirements are considerably more demanding than the specifications set by European legislators.

    Thanks, I'll take a look, but I am 95% sure the exhaust is sooty and dry, could be wrong though, so I'll double check tonight. Will probably avoid removing

    What do you mean by roll my fingers around the ends of the exhaust pipes to check if it's re-genning properly? What am I looking for in this instance?
