ŠKODA OCTAVIA SCOUT: Innovative technologies

› First OCTAVIA SCOUT to be available with DSG operation using shift-by-wire technology
› New head-up display projects important information onto the windscreen
› New assistance systems such as Collision Avoidance Assist and Turn Assist

The OCTAVIA SCOUT boasts a wealth of new technologies and all of the assistance systems the fourth-generation OCTAVIA has to offer. Shift-by-wire technology to operate the car’s DSG and a head-up display are the latest features for the model, as are new systems for increasing safety further, such as Collision Avoidance Assist and Turn Assist.

An optional head-up display is making its OCTAVIA SCOUT debut. This projects the most important information – such as speed, navigation advice, traffic signs and activated driver assistance systems – onto the windscreen, which can be heated as an option.



Innovative technologies from the fourth-generation OCTAVIA

The new OCTAVIA SCOUT can be ordered with numerous innovations that ŠKODA introduced with the launch of this fourth-generation range. The bestseller – fitted with DSG – is the brand’s first car to use shift-by-wire technology. The driver selects gears via a small rocker switch located in the centre console, which transmits the commands electronically. New assistance systems, such as Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist and Exit Warning (available from spring 2021), as well as the Local Traffic Warning mean that journeys in the OCTAVIA SCOUT are even safer. What’s more, the model is now on the market with full LED Matrix headlights, allowing the driver to leave the high beam on at all times. And it can be ordered with full LED tail lights, which feature not only dynamic indicators but also an animated Coming/Leaving Home function.


New and improved assistance systems in the OCTAVIA SCOUT

Other new and improved assistance systems from the fourth-generation OCTAVIA are also available for the OCTAVIA SCOUT. Side Assist warns the driver of vehicles approaching from behind or when they are in the blind spot, up to a distance of 70 m. It also helps to prevent accidents on motorways and dual carriageways. In urban environments, Front Assist – including Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection – warns of collisions visually, acoustically and by gently applying the brakes, slowing the car down when necessary. It detects moving and stationary vehicles in the direction of traffic, and also cyclists and people who are moving in front of the car.
