Two Skoda's Score Full Marks In Euro NCAP Test

At Startin Skoda Worcester, we understand that our customers prioritise different things when purchasing a vehicle, and safety is often at the top of their list. That's why we're thrilled to announce that The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has declared the all-electric Skoda Enyaq iV SUV and the all-new fourth-generation Skoda Fabia best-in-class for the 2021 test year. This means the two models were the safest of all vehicles tested in their respective classes in 2021, a huge success for the Skoda brand! Euro NCAP regularly compiles a list of the vehicles that have achieved the top result in their class in the crash safety reference tests performed during the previous year. For 2021, these “Best-in-class Cars” include two Skoda models: the Skoda Enyaq iV in the SUV class and the Skoda Fabia in the compact car class. This makes Skoda the only manufacturer to have two class winners in 2021. 

Skoda Enyaq iV

The Skoda Enyaq iV received the maximum rating of five stars and an overall score of 86 per cent of all possible points in the 2021 Euro NCAP test. The first Škoda vehicle to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform achieved outstanding results in the comprehensive crash and safety tests of the European New Car Assessment Programme, particularly in terms of occupant protection. With 94 per cent of available points for Adult Occupant Protection and 89 per cent for Child Occupant Protection, the Enyaq iV SUV set a new record in the Euro NCAP tests, which were once again made more stringent compared to 2020. Since then this percentage has only been exceeded once, by a premium class vehicle.

Skoda Fabia

In its Euro NCAP test, the -all-new Skoda Fabia benefited from a further increase in safety due to the switch to the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 Modular Transverse Matrix, which now enables the use of seven modern assistance systems, among other improvements. The successful model’s fourth generation scored 78 per cent of the maximum available points and, like the Enyaq iV, excelled particularly in the area of occupant protection, with 85 per cent of the possible points for Adult Occupant Protection and 81 per cent of the maximum points for Child Occupant Protection. This is a great result for a sub-compact vehicle.
