Today’s ŠKODAs incorporate more than 60 Simply Clever features, as listed on ŠKODApedia. These solutions are simple (they take no more than a few seconds to use), yet ingenious (they consign drivers’ age-old problems to the past) and widely available (many of them are standard-fit ŠKODA components).
Simple they may be, but coming up with Simply Clever components is not a straightforward process. The resulting solution may well look blindingly obvious at first glance, but in many cases the path to get there has been long and labyrinthine. Simply Clever features must have a meaningful purpose and be easy to use. They have to pass various stress tests and meet the very highest safety standards.
Examples include the funnel integrated into the windscreen washer fluid reservoir cap. This funnel proved so popular among professionals and the general public when we introduced it in the SCALA that now, having subsequently also been used in the KAMIQ, it will be fitted as standard in all new ŠKODA models. That is not to say that existing models will lose out – the integrated funnel is available for them as one of the ŠKODA Genuine Accessories.
