The results from latest round of Euro NCAP crash tests have just been revealed to be a resounding success for ŠKODA. Their large saloon, the Superb, has become the third car in 2015 to score the full five-star rating for safety. With NCAP crash tests evolving all the time, this latest test was the toughest ever.
The guidance from Euro NCAP suggests that a five-star rating indicates a good overall performance across all tests and comprehensive crash avoidance technology.
The new Superb scored 86 percent in tests of both adult and child protection and 71 percent in a test of pedestrian safety. The judges were also complimentary of the safety assist systems that are fitted as standard, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking. NCAP have awarded ŠKODA two Advanced Rewards for their safety systems: Crew Protect Assist and Multi Collision Brake.
The ŠKODA Superb is only the third car in 2015 to be awarded the full five stars, joining the Suzuki Vitara and the latest Renault Espace MPV. Other cars that were tested in the same round did not fare so well under the new, tougher tests which now focus more attention on driver assist systems. The Fiat Panda Cross was awarded a three-star rating which is disappointing compared to the regular Panda which currently has four stars.
