Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2021 Audi Q5: Audi Pre Sense, Active Lane Assist, and Audi Side Assist.
Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.
