The Superb is based on VW's Passat, which already has four stars for occupant protection. And, after a re-test, the Skoda matched that score. It also equalled EuroNCAP's worst-car pedestrian rating by achieving no points whatsoever. The body was judged to be unstable and the driver risked chest injuries from hitting the steering wheel as well as knee injuries from hard points behind the fascia. Warnings against the installation of child seats opposite an airbag were also poor.
