Audi Q8 - Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femursof both the driver and passenger. Audi showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and tothose sitting in different positions. Protection of the chest was marginal for both driver and passenger. In the full-width rigid barrier test,chest protection was again marginal for the rear passenger but other critical body areas were well or adequately protected, for bothoccupants. In both the side barrier test and the pole impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the car scored maximumpoints in these tests. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of arear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the front seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomousemergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality against other vehicles at the low speeds, typical of city driving,at which many whiplash injuries occur, with collisions avoided in almost all test scenarios.
