Popular Mechanics



With top 'good' ratings in every test from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and its Top Safety Pick Status for 2011, the Audi Q5 is one of the safest vehicles in its class—and one of the safest vehicles of any size.

The Q5 hasn't yet been tested in the revised, more stringent NCAP program introduced by the federal government this year, but last year it earned five stars in all categories of testing under the old program.

All the safety features are here, too, along with some that aren't typical in the class. Front, side, and curtain airbags are included, as are anti-lock brakes and stability control. Rear side thorax airbags are optional.

What's more, because it has more window space than most designs, and because of its height—and its almost ridiculously large side mirrors—the Q5 has good outward visibility without the need for high-tech solutions like rearview cameras and parking sensors (they're both offered though if you really want it). You're just a little (but not a lot) higher than most cars, and that's a good vantage.

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi Q5 is one of the safest compact crossovers you can get.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
