2016 Audi Q7 Vs 2015 Mercedes Benz GL Class Offroad Test

2016 Audi Q7 Crash Test
The passenger compartment of the new Audi Q7 remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Audi demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Measurements of chest compression in the driver dummy indicated a marginal level of protection for this part of the body. In the full width rigid barrier test, all critical body areas except the chest were well protected. Chest protection for the rear passenger dummy was adequate and that of the driver dummy was again marginal. In both the side barrier impact and the more severe side pole test, protection of all critical body regions was good and maximum points were scored. The front seats and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision, and a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good whiplash protection here too. An autonomous emergency braking system is fitted as standard on the Q7 and operates from the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused. Its performance in Euro NCAP's tests was good. In the full scale impact tests, both the 11⁄2 year dummy and the 3 year dummy were sat in rearward-facing restraints. The Q7 scored maximum points for its protection of the 3 year dummy in the tests. Protection of the 11⁄2 year dummy was good except for the chest, which experienced marginally elevated decelerations. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver and the system was rewarded. All of the restraints for which the Q7 is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle. The Q7 can be bought as a seven seater or a five seater. The optional third row seats have, as standard, integrated child restraints with ISOFIX anchorages. The seven seat vehicle would have scored additional points for child occupant protection and the five star overall rating applies also to that version. The Q7 has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance between the surface and the hard structures in the engine bay. Audi showed that the system triggered robustly over a range of speeds and for different pedestrian statures, so the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. Good results were recorded in almost all areas tested. The bumper had some areas offering good protection to pedestrians' legs but also some adequate and marginal results were recorded. Protection of the pelvic region of a struck pedestrian was predominantly poor. The Q7 is equipped, as standard, with electronic stability control, a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats, autonomous emergency braking and a speed assistance system. As well as operating at low, city speeds, the autonomous braking system also works at higher speeds and performed well in Euro NCAP's tests. The standard speed assistance system is a driver-set speed limiter, and this is the system assessed here. An optional system is available which also uses a camera and digital mapping to inform the driver of local speed limits. A lane departure warning system is available as an option but was not expected to meet the fitment requirements for inclusion in the assessment.
