All-new Audi Q2 and 2017 A5 sedan have been awarded the highest 5-star safety rating by Euro NCAP. It marks their entry in the list of safest vehicles in the segment. This is true for both adult and child safety, for pedestrian protection and for other safety systems. Emergency braking systems were introduced to the evaluation procedure in 2016. The Audi Q2 is equipped as standard with the emergency braking assistant as part of Audi pre sense front.

At speeds of up to 84kmph, the emergency braking system scans the road for other vehicles and pedestrians using a windshield-mounted front camera with a range of over 100 metres. If it detects an impending collision, the driver receives a series of warnings, and if necessary the car initiates maximum braking. At speeds up to 39kmph, accidents can be avoided completely within the system limits. At higher speeds (up to 84kmph), warnings and brake intervention reduce the impact velocity. Just so you know, the Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) has been investigating the crash performance of new car models since it was established in 1997. In order to simulate real-life accident conditions better, the consortium continually tightens crash safety requirements.

Speaking of Audi Q2, it scored 93 percent in adult occupant protection, 86 percent in child occupant and 70 percent in each pedestrian and safety assist category. The 5-door SUV has a kerb weight of 1380 kgs, while it features some of the finest safety features in form of 6-airbags, seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, lane assist system, speed assistance and seatbelt reminder as standard. It is the new entry-level model in the SUV portfolio of Audi and would be introduced in the Indian market by mid 2017. It would be challenging the likes of Skoda Kodiaq, Toyota Fortuner & Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in India, while being expected to be priced in a range of Rs. 24-28 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom).
