Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Audi A5 has a score of 85, implying a 0.036% chance of driver death (3.2% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.031%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.8%.

We estimate that the 2022 Audi A5 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0356% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.0692%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0356% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.0692% chance of being injured.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Audi A5: Audi Pre Sense. Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Audi A5--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Active Lane Assist and Audi Side Assist.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Audi A5. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
