The 2008 Audi Q7 scores extremely well in federal crash tests, with a laundry list of standard safety features.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Q7 its highest ratings for front and side impact protection. It also awards the Q7 four stars for rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) calls the Q7 a "Top Safety Pick."
Edmunds list the Q7’s safety features thusly: "antilock brakes, a stability control system with hill descent control and rollover detection, traction control, front occupant whiplash protection, side curtain airbags for all outboard passengers, and front-seat side airbags. Seat-mounted side airbags for the second row are optional.”
Audi also offers Side Assist, which activates a blinking light on the outside mirrors when objects appear in the blind spots, as well as adaptive cruise control.
The 2008 Audi Q7 is as safe an SUV as you can buy.
