Five EURO-NCAP Stars for the new Škoda Superb

29.05.2008: Five EURO-NCAP Stars for the new Škoda Superb

The new Škoda Superb has received five stars in independent crash tests performed by Euro-NCAP. One of the factors to have contributed to the highest possible rating is a knee airbag. Commenting on the new Škoda Superb, Euro-NCAP points out that the protection of the occupants' knees and thighs is excellent.

The Superb has achieved the highest possible scores also in side impact and pole impact simulations, receiving 35 points for the protection of adults and 40 points for the protection of children. The quality of pedestrian protection is very high, too.

"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.

The price of the basic version of the Superb in the Czech Republic is CZK 599,900 and includes seven airbags and other top-level safety elements, such as a new-generation body that is more rigid than that of the vehicle's predecessor and front seats optimised to protect the occupants from cervical spine injuries (a system called "whiplash"). The optional premium equipment level includes additional two airbags, an adaptive front lighting system, and more.
