The fourth generation of the Skoda Octavia has achieved a maximum five star test score in the independent European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).

This makes the Octavia one of the safest compact models on the market. Its 88% score for Child Occupant Protection puts it among the absolute top performers of vehicles tested to date. Its outstanding overall result continues the tradition of maximum scores for Skoda vehicles in what is the benchmark test for crash safety, following in the footsteps of previous five star performers such as the Kodiaq and Karoq SUV models, the compact Scala, and the Kamiq city SUV.

The maximum five-star score that the new Skoda Octavia estate has achieved in the Euro NCAP crash and safety tests also applies to the Octavia hatch. The model performed particularly well in the field of Child Occupant Protection. Scoring a similiar 88% of available points, the Octavia achieved one of the best results ever, as did its assistance systems, scoring 79% of the maximum points available. In the Adult Occupant Protection category, the Octavia scored 92% of all possible points.
