The new Škoda Superb has received five stars in independent crash tests performed by Euro-NCAP.

The new Skoda Superb has been tested by Europe's leading independent crash test organisation EuroNCAP. The Skoda withstood the punishment well and received a maximum of five stars for adult occupant protection, 4 stars (of five) for child protection and 2 stars (of four) for pedestrian safety.

EuroNCAP noted that the knee-airbag in the new Superb contributed to excellent protection of the occupants' knees and thighs. The entry level Superb counts seven airbags in total, anti-whiplash front seats and a more rigid body. Optional premium equipment includes two additional airbags, adaptive front lighting system amongst others.

“The new Superb has been developed to provide the occupants with maximum possible safety. The Euro-NCAP results confirm that we have managed to produce a top-quality vehicle in terms of performance, user comfort, as well as safety, one of the key aspects from the customer's perspective, and I am indeed very pleased about that”, said Dr. Eckhard Scholz, Škoda Auto BOD Member responsible for technological development.
