Audi’s new Q7 has earned a Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS, despite the requirements being tightened for 2016.
To qualify, winners must earn a rating of “good” in each of the IIHS’ five crash-worthiness tests, the small overlap, moderate overlap, side and roof strength and head restraints tests, and to have an “advanced” or “superior” rating on front crash prevention system.
The German SUV received the rating of “good” in the five crash worthiness evaluations and scored a “superior” rating for front crash prevention. The Audi A7 has standard Audi pre sense city with automatic emergency braking, which can detect moving and stationary vehicles as well as pedestrians, at speeds up to 84 km/h and initiate braking if potential collision is detected.
The 2017 Audi Q7 is currently offered in three versions in the USA, Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige, all of them sharing the same 3-liter TFSI engine, producing 248kW and 441Nm of torque.
