IIHS Official Safety Rating

The 2021 Audi Q5 has been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and has received stellar scores across the board. Based on many crash tests, the Audi Q5 was able to land the following scores:

Small Driver-Side Overlap




Small Passenger-Side Overlap


Roof Strength


Moderate Overlap Front


Head Restraints & Seats


Good is the best possible rating for a vehicle to earn in each one of these categories. Based on that, one can draw the conclusion that this model is ready for just about anything on the road.

In fact, the 2021 Audi Q5 earned a 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS! This is in part due to its many standard safety systems and rigid, durable frame.

NHTSA Official Safety Rating

The 2021 Audi Q5 earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.1 How? Well, it scored five stars in every single category except for one, including:

  • Overall front
  • Front driver side
  • Front passenger side
  • Overall side
  • Combined side barrier and pole
  • Side barrier
  • Overall side pole

The only category in which the Audi Q5 didn't score a five out of five stars was Rollover. However, this model still scored an admirable four out of five stars in this category with a rollover risk of 16.4%.

Advanced Safety Features

The 2021 Audi Q5 is equipped to handle anything on the road ahead of you with an array of advanced driver-assisting features. Predict and prevent problems coming from all sides with the help of:

  • Standard Audi pre sense® city: This feature detects vehicles and pedestrians in front of you and activates emergency braking at up to 52 MPH to help you prevent the collision.
  • Standard Audi side assist: Using a series of exterior sensors and Lane departure warning technology, this system can warn you of vehicles in your blind spots and when you begin to drift from your lane.
  • Available Audi active lane assist: If this system detects that you're drifting from your lane without your turn signal engaged, this system can automatically engage the steering wheel to keep you on track.
