Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal test, the screen pillar moving rearwards only 3mm. Adapative airbags and seatbelts tailor the timing and the degree of restraint to suit the size of the occupant and the severity of the impact. Protection of the passenger was good for all parts of the body. For the driver, the steering column presented a risk of injury to femurs. The car scored maximum points for its performance in the side barrier test with good protection of all body regions. In the side pole test, chest protection was marginal. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries.

Child occupant
Based on dummy readings, maximum points were scored for the protection provided to both the 3 year and the 1½ year children in the frontal and side impact tests. Forward movement of the head of the 3 year child, sat in a forward-facing seat, was not excessive in the frontal impact and the heads of both dummies were contained by the restraints in the side impact. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear.

Pedestrian
The bonnet offered poor protection in most areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's head. Similarly, protection offered by the front edge of the bonnet to pedestrian's legs was poor. Only the bumper scored maximum points, offering good protection.

Safety assist
Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Q5 as is a seatbelt reminder system for the front seating positions.
