› Up to nine airbags and the proactive occupant protection system Crew Protect Assist provide a high level of passive safety
› A wealth of assistance systems from higher vehicle segments
› The first vehicle in its segment to come with LED headlights and tail lights as standard
Numerous passive safety systems and assistance systems that were previously only available in higher segments make the new ŠKODA SCALA one of the safest vehicles in the compact car segment. As a first in its segment, the SCALA is equipped with LED technology for the headlights and tail lights as standard, with a full-LED version available as an option.
Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, said, “The new ŠKODA SCALA is one of the safest cars in its segment. Volkswagen Group’s incredibly flexible modular transverse matrix allows new assistance systems – which have so far only been available in higher vehicle segments – to be offered in the compact car segment, either for the first time or in enhanced variants. In addition, the ŠKODA SCALA also provides a high level of passive safety with up to nine airbags and proactive occupant protection system, Crew Protect Assist.”
In the event of an impending collision, the optional proactive occupant protection system Crew Protect Assist quickly and automatically closes any open windows and pre-tensions the front seat belts. Following an accident, Multi-Collision Brake prevents the vehicle from rolling any further in an uncontrolled manner.
