Cutting-Edge Safety Technology Shines in Audi’s Lineup

The 2023 Audi Q7 has been honored with the esteemed 2023 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This achievement marks the sixth Audi model in 2023 to receive this prestigious accolade, showcasing Audi’s unwavering dedication to safety and technological advancement.

In order to secure the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must meet rigorous safety standards, including achieving an acceptable or good rating for headlights across all available lighting options. The Audi Q7, manufactured after February 1, 2023, excelled in this aspect, earning an acceptable or good headlight rating for all three available lighting configurations.

One standout feature contributing to Audi’s safety success is its cutting-edge lighting technology. The Audi Q7 boasts state-of-the-art HD Matrix-design LED headlights, with an option for Audi laser light in the Prestige trim. These laser beams, activated at speeds over 40 mph, significantly enhance visibility by projecting a wide, low beam of light onto the road.

Safety in the Audi Q7 goes beyond lighting. All trims feature a front crash prevention system, which received a superior rating for both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations. Furthermore, the Audi Q7 offers a range of standard and available driver assistance features, reinforcing Audi’s dedication to safety innovation.

Noteworthy safety features in the Audi Q7 include Audi pre sense® basic, Audi pre sense® front, Audi side assist, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic assist, adaptive cruise assist, and a top view camera system. These technologies work in tandem to provide comprehensive safety coverage.

The IIHS’s stringent TOP SAFETY PICK+ criteria include “good” ratings in various crash tests, ensuring the highest levels of safety. The vehicle must also attain at least an “acceptable” rating for standard headlights and an “advanced” rating in vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention tests. The Audi Q7’s recognition underscores Audi’s commitment to setting new standards in automotive safety.
