Skoda Kodiaq, the new flagship SUV, has been awarded the highest possible rating of five stars by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). Occupant protection for adults and children, pedestrian protection, and safety assistance systems are all assessed in the Euro NCAP test. After the company models Octavia, Fabia, Rapid, Citigo, Yeti and Superb, the Kodiaq is the seventh model to get the maximum safety rating. The 7-seater SUV is due for a launch in the Indian market in the coming couple of months as the bookings have already started at company authorized dealerships across the nation.

“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 ŠKODA 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 an excellent rating of 92 percent 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.

The safety equipment of Skoda Kodiaq leaves nothing to be desired as it comes with up to 9 airbags, with a driver and front-seat passenger airbags, side airbags in the front, curtain airbags, driver ́s knee airbag and side airbags in the rear. Alongside part of the standard equipment are three-point seat belts with belt tensioners and the ISOFIX system for attaching children ́s seats at the rear seats. Functions also include automatic activation of the hazard lights in the event of emergency braking, automatic door unlocking and activation of the warning hazard lights and interruption of the fuel supply in the event of a collision. If a collision is imminent, the proactive occupant protection system Crew Protect Assist closes the windows and sunroof, and tensions the front seat belts. Following an accident, Multi-Collision Brake prevents the car from continuing to travel in an uncontrolled manner.
