Euro NCAP safety latest - Skoda Superb
Adult occupant protection Five stars
Child occupant protection Four stars
Pedestrian protection Two stars
The passenger compartment remained stable in the impact, offering good protection of the front-seat passengers' knees and femurs.
The Superb also scored maximum points for its performance in the side impact and pole tests.
The Superb scored maximum points for its protection of the 18-month-old dummy.
The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used on the front passenger seat.
However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag was criticised for not being sufficiently clear.
Also, Euro NCAP said that there was no adequate warning of the dangers of using a rearward-facing child restraint without first deactivating the airbag.
The presence of ISOFIX and top-tether anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs.
The bonnet surface provided fair protection in the area where a child's head might hit it.
However, the bonnet was rated as predominantly poor for the protection offered to an adult's head, and the front edge of the bonnet scored no points.
