The NHTSA is yet to conduct a full safety review of the Audi Q7, but the 2021 model did receive five stars for the side crash and the 2022 and 2023 models four stars for the rollover test. The 2023 model fared well on the IIHS test circuit, managing to get Good scores for safety categories for all the major crashworthiness tests, although its headlights were disappointingly rated as Poor.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
All Q7 models come standard with an advanced airbag protection system that includes head-curtain airbags, a tire-pressure monitoring system, and a full LATCH system. Rear side airbags are included as standard equipment on all models. Advanced driver-assistance systems include Audi pre sense front/basic/rear, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, three auto-dimming rearview mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, Audi side assist with rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, vehicle-exit warning, and automatic high beams. The Premium Plus adds a top-view camera system and adaptive cruise control with traffic-jam assist and lane-keep assist. The Prestige gets a head-up display, traffic-sign recognition, and Remote Park Assist Plus.

When it comes to reliability, the 2023 Audi Q7 hasn't been recalled yet at the time of writing. However, the 2022 model wasn't completely free of issues. It was recalled twice for two different issues relating to the failure of the rearview camera to display an image on the infotainment screen. Audi will cover the Q7 with a four-year/50,000-mile basic and drivetrain warranty, and four years of roadside assistance.
