ŠKODA has made travelling on the back seat even safer too: the CITIGOᵉ iVnow also informs the driver of any passengers in the rear who have not put on their seat belt. Front as well as head and thorax airbags for the front seats protect the driver and front passenger from severe injuries in the event of a collision. Rear parking sensors, which are part of the optional Comfort package, prevent dents and scratches to the car body by emitting alerts. In addition to a rain and light sensor including a Coming/Leaving Home function, the optional Winter package also comprises heated front seats and a heated windscreen.

The iV variant of ŠKODA’s flagship model comes with assistance systems of the latest generation too. Since the model upgrade in the summer of 2019, these include Side Assist working at a distance of up to 70 m away and Predictive Cruise Control. The latter not only automatically maintains the desired speed (up to 210 km/h) in relation to the vehicle ahead, but it also uses images from the camera on the windscreen and data from the navigation system to detect speed restrictions as well as bends, and adjusts the speed automatically. Emergency Assist for multi-lane roads (available from mid-2020) and Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian Protection are also both new.
The ŠKODA SUPERB iV comes with the option of two additional assistance systems – the only ones of their kind in the model range. Trailer Assist helps the driver when reversing as well as parking the car and a trailer. The display shows a diagram of the SUPERB iV and trailer pictured from above. Using the wing mirrors’ turn-switch, the driver first sets the direction and angle they would like to use for reversing. Then, all they have to do is keep an eye on traffic and accelerate or apply the brakes; steering is taken over by the system. Area View provides the driver with a 360-degree top-down view thanks to the use of four cameras, thereby assisting them when parking or manoeuvring.
