ENYAQ iV and FABIA ‘Best-in-class 2021’

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has declared the all-electric ŠKODA ENYAQ iV SUV and the fourth-generation ŠKODA FABIA best-in-class for the 2021 test year. This means the two models were the safest of all vehicles tested in their respective classes in 2021. The ENYAQ iV is the safest SUV to have been submitted to the crash safety reference test to date, scoring 86 per cent of the total possible points.

The new FABIA meanwhile, at 78 per cent, achieved the best score of all the compact cars tested in 2021. ŠKODA is the only manufacturer to be represented with two vehicles in the line-up of ‘Best-in-class Cars of 2021’. All 14 new ŠKODA models launched since 2008 have received the maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP test. ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA vehicle to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. It achieved outstanding results in the comprehensive crash and safety checks of the Euro NCAP test, particularly in terms of occupant protection. With 94 per cent of available points for Adult Occupant Protection and 89 per cent for Child Occupant Protection, the ŠKODA SUV set a new record in the Euro NCAP tests, which were once again made more stringent, compared to 2020. Since then this percentage has only been exceeded once, by a premium class vehicle.

The new ŠKODA FABIA benefited from a further increase in safety because of the switch to the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 Modular Transverse Matrix, which now allows the use of seven modern assistance systems, among other improvements. The successful model’s fourth generation scored 78 per cent of the maximum available points and, like the ENYAQ iV, excelled particularly in the area of occupant protection, with 85 per cent of the possible points for Adult Occupant Protection and 81 per cent of the maximum points for Child Occupant Protection.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
