ŠKODA has equipped the new OCTAVIA with numerous safety and comfort features usually reserved for higher-tier vehicles. The head-up display, for example, that projects the most important information directly onto the windscreen in clear view of the driver, is making its debut at ŠKODA. Other new features include two types of optional ergonomic seats, the top of-the-range variants being ventilated and bearing the seal of approval from the German Campaign for Healthier Backs.
The OCTAVIA’s new head-up display is a first at ŠKODA. It is available as an optional extra from the Style trim level upwards. This innovative feature increases both safety and comfort for the driver. It works using an imaging unit which creates pictures based on data to be displayed, such as speed, navigation, detected traffic signs and activated driver assistance systems. The resulting pictures are then presented in clear view of the driver using an optics module that projects directly onto the windscreen. This allows them to read such information without taking their eyes off the road.
