Safety: New safety equipment and assistance systems from higher vehicle classes

› Up to nine airbags and optional Crew Protect Assist ensure a high level of passive safety
› Standard fog lights from Selection trim level upwards, debut of LED Matrix beam headlights

Mladá Boleslav, 5 February 2024 – With many features enhancing active and passive safety, such as highly torsion-resistant bodies, advanced crumple zones and up to nine airbags, the Škoda Scala and Kamiq are among the safest vehicles in their respective classes. Well-tuned chassis and a wide range of modern assistance systems, including some from higher vehicle classes, also ensure a high level of active driving safety.

Range of standard safety features expanded

In the Euro NCAP reference test for crash safety, the Škoda Scala and Kamiq both achieved the maximum five-star rating. Thanks to the high proportion of high‑strength or specially hardened steel grades, the bodies of both models are extremely torsion-resistant. On top of that, numerous assistance systems are already standard on both models ‑ including some from higher vehicle classes. Among them are the camera-based assistance systems Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitor, Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, as well as Driver Alert, Multi-Collision Brake and rear parking sensors. Easy Light Assist, which automatically switches the low beam on and off, and the Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM+) are new additions on all models. From the Selection trim level upwards, Cruise Control with Speed Limiter and LED front fog lights are always on board as well.

Optional assistance systems for even more safety

Both models have up to nine airbags on board. In addition to the standard driver and front passenger airbags as well as the head airbags and front side airbags, a driver’s knee airbag and rear side airbags are optionally available. The safety package also includes Crew Protect Assist, which automatically closes open windows and immediately tightens the front seat belts in the event of an imminent collision. Travel Assist, familiar from higher vehicle segments, includes Adaptive/Predictive Adaptive Cruise Control and Adaptive Lane Assist. Adaptive Lane Assist even recognises temporary lane markings – for example in roadworks – and, if necessary, uses active steering movements to help keep the vehicle in its lane. Side Assist warns of vehicles approaching from behind up to a distance of 70 metres. LED Matrix beam headlights are available for both models for the first time. The LED rear lights come with optional animated direction indicators. A rear-view camera and Park Assist are optionally available to help with parking.
