IIHS Official Safety Rating

Small Driver-Side Overlap


Small Passenger-Side Overlap


Moderate Overlap Front




Roof Strength


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.

NHTSA Official Safety Rating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has awarded the 2020 Audi Q5 a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.1 The Audi Q5 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, which still earned the Audi Q5 a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.

Advanced Safety Features

Standardly, the 2020 Audi Q5 is equipped with an Advanced Airbag Protection System with six total airbags as well as front-passenger occupant detection for airbags.

To ensure that you stay steady on the road, the Q5 is also equipped with an Electronic Stability Control feature with Offroad mode, a secondary collision brake assist feature, and traction control. These features are designed to detect changes in your terrain and driving habits and automatically adjust to ensure that you stay in control.

That's far from all the Audi Q5 has to offer in terms of safety, though. This model also offers up an array of advanced active safety features that you can opt for, including:

  • Audi pre sense® basic-helps you prepare for oncoming collisions
  • Audi pre sense® city-detects vehicles and pedestrians in front of you and activates emergency braking
  • Audi side assist with pre sense® rear-keeps an eye on your blind spots
  • Rear cross traffic assist-helps you reverse out of a parking space by alerting you to approaching vehicles
  • Vehicle exit assist-lets you know when it's safe to open your door when parked on the side of a busy lane

Additionally, the Audi Q5 can be equipped with a Top view camera system, which provides you with a 360-degree, bird's-eye view of your surroundings right on your infotainment screen.

As you can see, the 2020 Audi Q5 holds its own when it comes to safety. Whether you're commuting to work or carting the whole family out of town for your next weekend away, you can count on the Audi Q5 to keep you safe and confident on the road.

However, impressive safety ratings and safety features is far from all this model has to offer. Shoppers in Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Irving should give us a call at Audi Grapevine today to schedule a test drive!
