Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In both the frontal offset and side impact tests, protection was GOOD for all critical body regions for both the 6 year and 10 year child dummies.

The Audi Q8 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages for the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, however the Type A capsule could not be correctly installed in the rear outboard seating positions and one of the two selected convertible seats could not be correctly installed in rearward-facing mode using the ISOfix anchorages.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Audi Q8 provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with POOR results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars and front edge of the bonnet surface. Protection of the pelvis area was mostly POOR, while the bumper showed GOOD results for leg impacts.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system offered GOOD performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with GOOD performance recorded in all daylight scenarios. In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered GOOD performance. The system’s overall performance was classified as GOOD.
