Škoda Kodiaq achieves 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating

Skoda Kodiaq

Euro NCAP has awarded the Škoda Kodiaq a five-star safety rating, the highest available.

Occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection and safety assistance systems are all assessed in the Euro NCAP test.

The Kodiaq is the seventh model produced by Škoda to achieve top marks in the test.

“Euro NCAP is one of the most demanding safety tests. We are therefore proud to have achieved the best result," says Christian Strube, Škoda board member for Technical Development.

"The Kodiaq has a long list of innovative technologies and clever solutions on the board. We have increased the passive safety, despite the body shape itself making a major contribution to the safety. In addition, we have expanded the advanced assistance systems so that accidents can be avoided to an even greater extent."

Euro NCAP awarded a rating of 92% for occupant protection of adult passengers. In the side-barrier collision test, the Kodiaq achieved full marks for good protection of all vulnerable areas of the body at a risk of injury.
