The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has awarded five-star overall safety ratings — the highest score possible — to the 2018 Audi Q5 and 2018 Audi Q7 as part of the safety agency’s New Car Assessment Program.

To qualify for the top score, both luxury SUVs scored five stars in the frontal and side crash tests. The vehicles were each given four stars in the rollover crash evaluation.

The 2018 Q5 and Q7 include driver assistance systems. Standard Audi Pre Sense Basic can help prepare a vehicle for impact before an impending collision by closing the side windows and panoramic sunroof and pretensioning the front safety belts.

Additionally, standard Audi Pre Sense City helps detect stationary vehicles and pedestrians. At speeds of up to 52 mph, the feature can initiate full braking when a potential collision is detected, according to Audi.

Available Audi Pre Sense Rear helps monitor traffic following the vehicle and takes similar actions to Audi Pre Sense Basic. Audi Side Assist provides blind spot monitoring with LED indicators on the exterior mirror housing.
