Default Things you didn't know your Q30 could do ?

I know reading through the owners manual can be tedious especially when it's an encyclopedia
so if you have any queries or as neat tricks become available I'll post on this thread for your enjoyment

Hood detonation
Did you know that your Q30 has achieved euro ncap 5 star safety level.
Every car is fitted with pyrotechnic detonators linked to a sensor tube behind the front bumper.
The idea being if you hit a pedestrians legs the hood (bonnet) hinges will explode shear pins alowing it to move upwards and slightly back moving the pedestrian away from hard engine components.
The sensor detects air pressure in a plastic tube rather like a straw, if the tube is squashed it will deploy the detonators, unfortunately it's that unsophisticated.
So in years to come if the front bumpers to be removed extreme caution should be applied...and disconnect the battery first.

I think its cool that the Q30 is safe even for pedestrians (safer than other cars). I don't plan on running people over, but its just good that it isn't simply accepted that if you hit someone they are dead. Mitigating the harm to those unlucky people is a great thing that doesn't get much attention.

You can see it in action in their crash test video. Didn't actually pay attention to it until now.

Even the interior held up really well which is key for your safety, especially around the leg area since the intense frontal impact can cause a major shift in the placement of frontal components.

Optional active noise cancellation works like noise cancelling headphones by transmitting noise at a certain frequency to drown out background sounds. Never knew how it really worked until now.

Too bad they had to do that instead of outfitting the interior with materials that assist in blocking out exterior noise. But of course that will be reserved for higher end models. Maybe a production model Q80?

Is there really much of a difference if they both end up doing the same thing?

Maybe the noise transmitted won't reach every inch of the cabin like increased padding would.

The way I see it the sound proofing gets right at the issue, where the sound comes in at, noise transmitted just cancels out. But who knows in person it might be good enough that i won't see a need for more.
