New assistance systems for the CITIGOᵉ iV and SUPERB iV

Lane Assist as standard for the CITIGOᵉ iV
› ŠKODA’s flagship model comes with Side Assist and Predictive Cruise Control
› ŠKODA SUPERB iV to feature two exclusive assistance systems in the range

Mladá Boleslav, 25 November 2019 – Just like any of the other models offered by the Czech brand, ŠKODA’s first electrified vehicles in the company’s history boast a high degree of active and passive safety. The all-electric city speedster, the ŠKODA CITIGOᵉ iV, has been fitted with Lane Assist as standard. The plug-in-hybrid SUPERB iV comes with all of the modern assistance systems the upgraded SUPERB family has to offer and can optionally and exclusively also be equipped with Trailer Assist and Area View.

For the all-electric CITIGOᵉ iV, ŠKODA has added Lane Assist to its city speedster’s list of standard safety features. Using the front camera, this system continuously monitors the road and minimises the risk of the driver unintentionally leaving the lane by making corrective adjustments via the electronic steering, if required. This reduces the risk of an accident whilst also increasing the level of comfort for the driver by taking away some of the strain.

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.

ŠKODA SUPERB iV

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.
