Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

Since the safety of cars is one of the prime considerations among families, carmakers are competing to get the highest safety ratings from both the IIHS and NHTSA. This is the reason why luxury vehicles are either at the top or near the top of the safety list.

This is true with the new 2009 Audi Q5 which comes with most of the safety elements currently offered on the market, causing it to top both the IIHS and NHTSA safety tests. Audi's concern for both motorists and their passengers are reflected on the superb ratings of the Audi Q5.

IIHS rigid testing requires top marks for side, front and rear impact tests, including standard stability control for a vehicle to get the honor of the Top Safety Pick, as the Q5 has managed to do.

The 2009 Audi Q5 received the maximum 5 stars for both driver and passenger safety protection for both front and side impacts evaluations from NHTSA.

All the Audi models vended in the US comes with four-wheel disc brakes equipped with anti-lock braking system as standard, also an electronic stability program, daytime running lights and a standard tire pressure monitoring system.

The Q5 includes quattro permanent all-wheel standard on all models, offering high levels of dynamic safety and traction in most driving conditions. These special elements were included to assist in limiting the likelihood of collisions and add to the top marks of the Q5.
