The new Skoda Scala has passed Euro NCAP crash tests with flying colours.

Skoda’s all-new compact model netted an overall five-star rating, scoring especially high in the adult occupant safety and cyclist safety sections of the test.  The Scala scored an impressive 97 per cent for adult occupant safety, and full marks for cyclist protection.

Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection, City Emergency Brake function, and Lane Assist are all included as standard on the Skoda Scala, while Side Assist, which alerts drivers to vehicles approaching from behind or in the car’s blind spot, is also available.

Almost 70 per cent of the Scala’s bodyshell is constructed using high-strength, ultra-high-strength, and specially hardened steels for optimised rigidity.  Also included are nine airbags, including an optional knee airbag for the driver and optional side airbags at the rear.  Other additional safety features include Multi-Collision Brake, optional Crew Protect Assist proactive occupant protection system, as well as ISOFIX and top-tether attachments on the rear seat bench and front passenger seat.

Euro NCAP introduced even more stringent standard last year, making the Skoda Scala’s performance even more impressive.
