The tested model of Audi Q3 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand during 2012. This rating applies to all variants.
The diesel front-wheel-drive left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the rating applies to petrol and all-wheel-drive variants.
Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats (all seats have seat belt reminders in Europe). Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
