Safety: A wealth of assistance systems and up to nine airbags

› Škoda Scala and Kamiq offer a very high level of active and passive safety
› Further extended range of advanced assistance systems from higher vehicle classes
› Five-star top rating in the Euro NCAP tests for both models

Mladá Boleslav, 1 August 2023 – The Škoda Scala and the Škoda Kamiq are among the safest vehicles in their respective classes. Their high level of active and passive safety earned both models the maximum rating of five stars in their Euro NCAP tests, courtesy of very torsionally rigid bodies, up to nine airbags and a wide range of advanced assistance systems.

The Škoda Scala and Kamiq protect their occupants with numerous active and passive safety systems that contribute to preventing an accident or reducing the severity of its consequences. Both models have very torsionally rigid bodies that include a high proportion of high-strength or specially hardened steel. This increases safety and also makes for improved handling and exceptional durability. In the event of an accident, up to nine airbags protect the occupants. Standard equipment for vehicles in the European Union includes airbags for the driver and front passenger as well as head airbags and side airbags at the front. A safety package with a driver’s knee airbag, rear side airbags and Crew Protect is available as an option. Crew Protect automatically closes open windows and tightens the front seat belts in the event of an imminent collision.

Wide range of assistance systems
Škoda offers a comprehensive range of assistance systems for the Scala and Kamiq, some of which are more commonly associated with higher vehicle categories. In the European Union, both models’ standard equipment includes Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitor, Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition. Manoeuvre Assist uses the rear parking sensors to detect potential obstacles when manoeuvring and automatically brings the vehicle to a stop if a collision is imminent. Hands-on Detection checks at regular intervals whether the driver has their hands on the steering wheel and is still in control of the vehicle. Side Assist, available as an option, warns of approaching vehicles from behind, up to a distance of 70 metres. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Adaptive Lane Assist are also available as options for the Scala and Kamiq. The latter system also recognises non-permanent lane markings, for example due to roadworks, and where appropriate performs active steering interventions to help keep the vehicle in its lane.
