Mladá Boleslav, 14 April 2021 – Top rating for the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV: The new electric SUV has achieved the highest classification of five stars in tests conducted by the independent European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). It ranks among the safest vehicles currently available with a total of 86% of the possible points. In addition, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV achieved the best result ever in the Euro NCAP test for occupant protection, with 94% for adult passengers and 89% for children. ŠKODA’s first model based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit thus continues the string of top scores for ŠKODA vehicles in the crash safety reference test, even with the now stricter assessment criteria. ŠKODA’s bestseller, the OCTAVIA, the compact model SCALA and the SUV models KODIAQ, KAROQ and KAMIQ, among others, have all been awarded the five-star rating.

Johannes Neft, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Technical Development, says, “We are delighted to receive a five-star evaluation for the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV in the Euro NCAP test. We are particularly proud of the result for the protection of adults and children in the interior. The fact that we have extended the successful record of five-star results for our vehicles even after the more stringent test parameters were introduced last year confirms our strong commitment to the safety of our customers and all other road users.”

The new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV achieved exceptional results in the comprehensive crash and safety tests of the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), particularly in passenger protection. With 94% of the maximum points attainable for the protection of adults in the vehicle and 89% for the protection of children, ŠKODA’s first all-electric SUV achieved top marks in the Euro NCAP test, which was made even more rigorous in 2020. In all other areas and with an overall score of 86% of the maximum score, the new ENYAQ iV consistently ranks in the top group.

The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV comes with up to nine airbags, including a central airbag between the front seats, and comprehensive Proactive Occupant Protection. Numerous state-of-the-art assistance systems alert the driver to potential collisions in many situations and even actively help to prevent them or minimise the consequences. These include Front Assist with predictive pedestrian and cyclist protection, Side Assist including Rear Traffic Alert, as well as Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist and Exit Warning. Travel Assist actively supports the driver in longitudinally and laterally controlling the vehicle and, along with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), also includes Adaptive Lane Assist with roadworks recognition, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. A head-up display, in which ŠKODA has incorporated augmented reality for the first time, and full LED matrix headlights are available as options for the ENYAQ iV.

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) is a scheme founded in 1997 by transport ministries, automobile clubs, insurance associations and research institutes from eight European countries. The consortium is based in the Belgian city of Leuven. It conducts crash tests on current vehicle models and evaluates their active and passive safety. In recent years, the tests have continuously been made more stringent and now include various collision scenarios. While initially only the results of crash tests were evaluated, the ratings of active safety systems, as well as driver assistance systems, now have a greater weighting in the overall evaluation.
