Safety: New assistance systems and up to nine airbags

› The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV features supreme active and passive safety, and plenty of innovative assistance systems
› The electric SUV is the first ŠKODA to offer a head-up display including augmented reality
› New convenient assistance for when parking

Mladá Boleslav, 1 September 2020 – Boasting numerous assistance systems and up to nine airbags, the ENYAQ iV provides the highest level of active and passive safety. What’s more, new features make it easier to park.

ŠKODA is offering its ENYAQ iV customers all of the innovative, new safety and assistance systems. The SUV can automatically warn of collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and fixed obstacles, ideally preventing an accident completely or at least minimising its consequences. Up to nine airbags protect the occupants in the event of an accident. Proactive Crew Protect Assist automatically tensions the seat belts during emergency braking and closes the windows and the panoramic sliding roof in the event of an impending collision, or if the car is in danger of skidding or tipping over.

The ENYAQ iV is equipped with LED headlights and tail lights as standard, whilst full LED Matrix headlights and full LED tail lights in a ‘C’ shape are available as options. Each Matrix high-beam module contains 24 LEDs, which can be controlled individually and enable the driver to have the high beam on at all times without dazzling other road users. If a camera on the windscreen detects vehicles as well as people and objects reflecting the light, the intelligent lighting technology automatically turns off individual segments of the light beam.

Two areas for the head-up display

The ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA to come equipped with a head-up display featuring augmented reality, which projects information onto two different areas. In addition to the current speed and detected traffic signs, information from the assistance systems and navigation instructions can also be displayed on the windscreen just above the dashboard in immediate view of the driver. The projection zone for augmented reality is larger and is located higher up on the windscreen, still in clear view of the driver. It is directed onto the road up ahead of the vehicle, where larger symbols such as directional arrows indicate navigational instructions, information relating to Adaptive Lane Assist or Adaptive Cruise Control is shown, and traffic signs or warnings are displayed. The driver can individually adjust the position of the display area on the windscreen, set the colour and brightness, and select what information is to be shown in the infotainment system’s menu.

New, innovative assistance systems boost safety

In the event of an impending collision with a pedestrian, cyclist or another vehicle, Collision Avoidance Assist for example supports the driver by actively increasing the steering moment to prevent the accident using a controlled evasive manoeuvre. When turning left at junctions, Turn Assist detects oncoming traffic at an early stage, warns the driver and automatically brings the car to a stop if necessary. When a door is opened, Exit Warning alerts the occupant if another vehicle or a cyclist approaches from behind. It does this acoustically and visually via a light signal on the inside of the wing mirror housing.

Travel Assist comprises Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive Lane Assist including roadwork recognition, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. In a higher configuration level, Travel Assist can take over lateral steering in narrow spaces using online information based on current data clusters – even in the city. Adaptive Cruise Control, which in its predictive version also incorporates route data from the navigation system and traffic signs, will also be able to react to obstacles reported via online traffic data too.

Enhanced functions for Park Assist

To make parking even easier in the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA has expanded the functions of Park Assist, which up to now had already taken over the steering when driving in and out of parallel and bay parking spaces. In the new, even more intelligent configuration, the system can also brake the car automatically and prevent collisions with pedestrians or objects.

Remote-controlled parking goes one step further: It allows the driver to guide their ENYAQ iV into particularly tight parallel and bay parking spaces remotely via their smartphone and the ŠKODA Connect app. The system takes over the steering and brakes automatically. Park Assist now has a function for trained parking too. This enables the driver to record their route into a frequently used parking space, for example in a narrow and angled driveway. They only have to do this once, and can then automatically repeat this route in exactly the same way at any time at the push of a button. Here too, the system takes over the steering and brakes, and prevents collisions.
