The new OCTAVIA was given a 92% rating for occupant protection, making it one of the safest compact models. And the 88% score in child occupant protection also makes it one of the highest-scoring vehicles.

The new generation of OCTAVIA models comes with extensive safety features and assistance systems that were previously confined to higher-range vehicles. For the very first time, a ŠKODA car features collision avoidance assist, turn assist and an exit warning system.

NUMBER OF THE MONTH: 5The new ŠKODA OCTAVIA COMBI has achieved the maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP test, making it one of the safest compact models on the market.

The OCTAVIA has thus joined the successful ranks of five-star models from recent years. The new KAMIQ and SCALA models achieved the same result in 2019, while the KAROQ and KODIAQ SUVs had previously been awarded top marks.

ŠKODA vehicles are among the safest on the market. Since 2009, the majority of the brand’s models have received top-rung assessments in Euro NCAP impact tests. What makes this result even more impressive is that the demands placed on vehicles and their safety features increase every year.

Founded in 1997, the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) is an organisation of transport ministries, automobile associations, insurance groups and research institutes from eight European countries. The organisation performs safety tests on new automobile models and evaluates their active and passive safety.

Number five is the latest in the Number of the Month serial. In this serial, ŠKODA Storyboard regularly presents interesting facts and figures about ŠKODA vehicles – their history, present and future – or about goings-on in the company ŠKODA, focusing on a particular number.
