Popular Mechanics



The 2012 Audi Q5 remains an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2012, and it has one of the most complete sets of safety features in this class.

Most notably, rear thorax airbags, which aren't broadly offered, are optional here. Front, side, and curtain airbags are included, as are anti-lock brakes and stability control.

While the Q5 hasn't been tested in the more stringent federal NCAP program introduced last year, it's earned top scores in all respects in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing--including the new roof-strength test.

We also like the visibility offered by all the window space in the Q5's design; combined with the rather large side mirrors, drivers will have 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).

Conclusion

Among compact crossovers, the 2012 Audi Q5 is one of the safest.

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.
