Monitors vehicles following from behind and if a potential collision is detected, the driver is first warned visually via flashing light, Audi Pre-sense Basic measures (e.g. closing windows) are initiated and then if a collision is unavoidable, the system will tighten the front seat belts. The system is deactivated when towing.

Audi Side Assist
Aids the driver when changing lane. Audi Side Assist monitors the area behind your car using radar sensors located discreetly in the rear bumper. It then informs the driver with a visual warning signal in the door mirror if there is a vehicle in their blind spot or approaching quickly from behind. Works at speeds from approximately 6mph.

Cross-traffic assist rear
Warns the driver of traffic crossing behind their own vehicle when reversing. The system alerts the driver first visually and then acoustically via the MMI, and then applies a brake jolt if a potential collision is detected.

Exit warning
Monitors the rear and side of your stationary Q5 and alerts the occupants of vehicles/cyclists approaching from behind, via a warning light on the door handle before exiting.

360° camera
Wide-angle lenses cover the close range around the vehicle. The driver can choose between different image representations in the MMI display, including a live ‘bird’s-eye view’ image for parking. Includes guidelines which help the driver manoeuvre and navigate the vehicle into the right position.

Park Assist

 • Parallel parking in reverse
• Exiting a parallel parking space, driving forwards
 • Bay parking, both reverse and forwards Steering is done by the vehicle, with the driver responsible for acceleration and application of the brakes
Only in combination with Electrically adjustable mirrors and additionally on Sport and S line models with Technology Pack.
