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 Q5 has a score of 93, implying a 0.025% chance of driver death (2.2% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Audi Q5 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0248% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 2.8266%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0248% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 2.8266% 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 systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 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. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Audi Q5. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
