Skoda’s first electric crossover has been recognized as one of the safest cars, having shown the best results in protecting adults and children inside the car. The new Enyaq iV has received a five-star rating in EuroNCAP tests.
The new Skoda Enyaq iV electric SUV has received the highest five-star rating in tests conducted by the independent European New Car Assessment Association (Euro NCAP). It ranks among the safest vehicles currently available, with 86% possible scores. In addition, the Skoda Enyaq iV showed the best result in the Euro NCAP test for passenger protection: 94% for adult passengers and 89% for children.
The first Skoda model, based on the Volkswagen Group modular platform, thus continues the series of the highest scores among the Czech brand in the crash safety benchmark, even taking into account the already more stringent evaluation criteria. Skoda’s bestseller, Octavia, Scala compact and Kodiaq, Karoq and Kamiq SUVs, among others, have been awarded a five-star rating.
Johannes Neft, Skoda Auto Technical Development Board Member, remarked:
“We are pleased to receive five stars for the new Skoda Enyaq iV in the Euro NCAP test. We are especially proud of the result of protecting adults and children inside the car. ”
Recall that the Skoda Enyaq iV is equipped with airbags, of which there are a total of 9, including a central airbag between the front seats and comprehensive proactive passenger protection. Numerous modern driver assistance systems warn the driver of potential collisions in many situations and even actively help prevent or minimize the consequences. These include Front Assist with pedestrian and cyclist recognition, Side Assist including rear traffic alert, as well as collision avoidance assistance, turn assist and lane departure warning. As options for the Enyaq iV, a head-up display is available, in which Skoda has included augmented reality for the first time, and full LED matrix headlights.
