2018 Skoda KAROQ gains top safety score

Skoda’s new compact SUV gets full marks

Skoda was one of the big movers in the Australian car race in October and much of the growth being experienced by the brand is being fed by the demand for the Skoda KODIAQ.

The new medium-sized Skoda SUV landed earlier in the year and has proven a handy addition to the Skoda line-up so far.

But also coming soon is another new Skoda SUV – a compact model known as the KAROQ.

When the model lands in Australia in early 2018 it will also join the KODIAQ in boasting a maximum five-star safety rating.

Euro NCAP has done the testing on the Skoda KAROQ and awarded the model a strong 93% adult occupant protection score.

Child occupant protection came in at 79%, pedestrian protection was 73%, while Safety Assist credentials got a 58% score.
