In the frontal impact poor welding resulted in rupture of the footwell area. There was separation of the seam connecting the firewall to the footwell and failure of spot-welds in the footwell and its connection to the A-pillar. Audi informed EuroNCAP that they have now improved control over this part of production but the car lost points for its performance in this area. Structures in the dashboard presented a potential risk to the knees and femurs of the driver. The Q7 scored maximum points in the side impact test. The car is fitted with a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and front seat passenger however, the signal was not loud and clear enough to meet EuroNCAP's requirements.
