Quite surprised by the side pole impact on the Q7. Driver dummy was sent strongly towards the mid like he was bumped directly by the pole. And that roof flying up and bumping on the top of the vehicule seemed like it was about to go drop inside the cabin in the slow motion. For the rest, both seemed pretty safe.

I noticed that too. The side pole test looked didn't look so great for the Audi. And I wish they had shown the reason the Audi got a 76% score on safety assist systems. The video shows AEB inter-urban avoided crash at 70 kph for the XC90, but only 65 kph for the Q7. Maybe that's the reason. The safety assist score is the testing where the XC90 got a 100%--which prompted a press release from Volvo.
