The Q3, which Audi introduced in 2015, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Q3 packs some oomph. Audi offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.

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 Q3 has a score of 88, implying a 0.032% chance of driver death (2.8% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Audi Q3 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0315% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.6019%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0315% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.6019% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Audi Q3 is 32% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Audi Q3 is 22% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Audi Q3 include: Audi Pre Sense, Active Lane Assist, and Audi Side Assist.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. 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.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
