2019 Audi Q3 Receives 5 Star Rating In The Euro NCAP Tests
The results of the frontal off set crash tests of the 2019 Audi Q3 suggest that the legs of the driver and the passengers had good protection. The full width rigid barrier test also hints at the adequate protection of chest and all the other critical body areas of the driver and the rear passengers. Moreover, the results of the frontal off set test and the side barrier test also suggests that the SUV has good protection of the critical body areas of the children. The crash test data of the side barrier impact crash tests and the side pole test states that the head restraints offered good protection against whilplash injuries in case of a rear end collision.
Given that the car would be driven mostly in the city in stop-start traffic, NCAP also mentions, “the standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused.”In a country like India, where pedestrian safety is compromised, NCAP added, “the AEB system is able to detect vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians’ legs at all test locations.”
