Audi Q3: Safety belts

General information

Each seat is equipped with a three-point safety belt. Safety belts that are worn correctly are the most effective way to reduce the risk of serious or fatal injuries in a collision. Therefore, wear your safety belt correctly and make sure that all vehicle passengers are also wearing their safety belts correctly when the vehicle is moving.

Even though your vehicle is equipped with an airbag system, every vehicle passenger must still always wear the appropriate safety belt. In addition to their normal protective function, safety belts also hold vehicle occupants in the correct seating position in the event of a collision so that the airbags can deploy correctly and provide additional protection. Safety belts provide protection during collisions when the airbags do not deploy or if they have already deployed.


The risk of serious or fatal injury increases if the safety belt is not fastened, if it is worn incorrectly, or if it is damaged.

  • All vehicle occupants, including the driver, must fasten their safety belts correctly before every trip and must always keep their safety belts fastened during the trip, regardless of whether the seat is equipped with an airbag or not. This also applies to children that are seated in a child safety seat that is appropriate for their weight and age and that is secured with a safety belt.
  • In the event of a collision, vehicle occupants that are not wearing safety belts could be propelled through the vehicle interior and collide with vehicle components, such as the steering wheel, instrument panel, windshield, or doors. In some situations, vehicle occupants could also be ejected from the vehicle.

    Vehicle occupants in the rear seats who do not wear safety belts not only endanger themselves, but also other people in the vehicle.

  • Only one person may be fastened with a safety belt at a time. Never secure more than one person, including children, with a single safety belt.
  • Never allow children or infants to ride on another person's lap and be belted into the safety belt with them.
  • Insert the belt buckle only in the belt latch belonging to the corresponding seat, so that the protective function is not impaired.
  • To ensure the maximum protective function of the safety belts, all vehicle passengers must sit in the correct seating position.
  • Check the condition of your vehicle's safety belts regularly. If you find damage to the belt webbing, the belt connections, the retractor, or the buckle, have the damaged safety belt replaced by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.
  • The safety belts must not be removed or modified in any way. Do not attempt to repair the safety belts yourself.
  • Safety belts that are strained during an accident must be replaced by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.
