In the first frontal test cables attached to the battery were damaged, shorting out the electrical supply. As a result, the seatbelt pre-tensioners failed to fire and the airbag fired late. Euro NCAP allowed Skoda to re-test the car with modifications to address these areas of concern. In the re-test, the cables were again damaged, despite Skoda's efforts to protect them, but the airbags and pre-tensioners fired as intended thanks to a re-programmed control unit and a capacitor in the circuit to the control unit and the pre-tensioners. Skoda have informed Euro NCAP that they do not intend to modify cars already sold to customers. Despite the success of some of Skoda's modifications, Euro NCAP remains concerned that all of the main electrical supply cables are so vulnerable in a frontal collision. While it is not considered a fire risk, a vehicle could be left without any of its electrical systems (hazard lights etc.) functioning after an accident. Structures in the dashboard presented a potential risk to the pelvis, femurs and knees of the driver and passengers.
