Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Audi showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. In the side barrier test, the Q3 scored maximum points, all body areas being well protected. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas was good. The front seats and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant
In the frontal impact, forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side barrier test, both dummies were properly contained within the shells of their restraints, minimising the likelihood of dangerous head contacts. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint without disabling the passenger airbag in that position are clearly explained in a permanently attached label. A switch is available as an option, and can be retro-fitted by an Audi dealer, which allows the passenger airbag to be disabled so that a rearward-facing child restraint can be used in that seating position. However, as the switch is not standard equipment on any model, it did not qualify for assessment by Euro NCAP.

Pedestrian
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet was poor in all areas tested and scored no points. In those areas likely to be struck by a child's head, protection was predominantly good but was poor in most areas likely to be struck by the head of an adult.

Safety assist
Electronic stability control is standard equipment and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is not available for the Q3.
