Skoda Kamiq gets five-star safety score
September 8, 2019
The Skoda Kamiq has received a maximum five stars in its Euro NCAP safety test with particularly high scores for protecting adult occupants and cyclists.
Christian Strube, Skoda Auto Board Member for Technical Development, explains: “The active and passive safety of our vehicles is a top priority for Skoda. The fact that the Kamiq, our latest model, has now received another maximum five-star score in the Euro NCAP crash test shows what a high bar we have set ourselves for the safety of our vehicles and provides another demonstration of how successful our engineering work is in this area.”
Like the equally five-star-rated compact Skoda Scala, the Kamiq is based on the VW Group’s MQB-A0 platform, which features state-of-the-art safety and assistance systems. This city SUV’s extremely stiff body with its large deformation zones and extremely robust occupant cell ensures superior passive safety, with Skoda using an almost 80-per-cent share of high-strength or specially hardened steels in this part of the vehicle.
