The ŠKODA KAMIQ has received a maximum five stars in its test by the independent European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). This makes the car maker’s first city SUV yet another model to be counted among the safest vehicles in its class. The KAMIQ did particularly well in terms of protecting adult occupants and cyclists.
In the event of an accident, the KAMIQ protects its occupants with up to nine airbags, including an optional knee airbag for the driver and rear side airbags. Additional safety features include the Multi-Collision Brake, the optional Crew Protect Assist proactive occupant protection system as well as ISOFIX and top-tether anchor points on the rear seat bench and front passenger seat to ensure optimal protection of small children at all times. Standard equipment for the ŠKODA KAMIQ also includes Lane Assist, while the optional Side Assist alerts drivers to vehicles approaching from behind or in the car’s blind spot. The combined effect of these assistance systems earned the KAMIQ a score of 3.5 out of a maximum of four points.
