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 2023 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 2023 Audi A5 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0359% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.0944%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0359% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.0944% chance of being injured.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 Audi A5: Audi Pre Sense. Optional safety features on the 2023 Audi A5 which we recommend include Active Lane Assist and Audi Side Assist.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
