Safety and connectivity: Comprehensive state-of-the-art assistance systems,
debut of parking via app

› Škoda’s large SUV comes with numerous assistance systems and up to nine airbags
› Remote Parking Assist to debut in this model series in 2024
› Travel Assist includes Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist

Mladá Boleslav, 26 June 2023 – For the second model generation, Škoda has raised the safety level of the Kodiaq even higher and further improved some of its numerous assistance systems. Examples of this include the Emergency Assist and Traffic Jam Assist. Available for the first time in the Kodiaq is the new Remote Parking Assist, which will debut next year and enable remote parking using an app. In addition, there are up to nine airbags protecting the occupants, for the best possible passive safety.

Advanced assistance systems for even more safety

The second-generation Kodiaq offers state-of-the-art active and passive safety. Up to nine airbags protect the passengers. In addition to driver and front passenger airbags, front side airbags, head airbags and a central airbag between the front seats are all included as standard. Side airbags for the rear seats are available as an option, as are the enhanced Crew Protect Assist and Emergency Assist. As soon as sensors detect emergency or panic braking or an imminent collision – this now includes impending rear-end collisions – Crew Protect Assist automatically closes windows and, where applicable, the panoramic roof; it also activates the hazard warning lights and tightens the front seat belts. Emergency Assist reduces the risk of an accident should the driver no longer be able to control the vehicle – for example, due to a medical emergency. If the system detects such a situation, it takes over lane control, switches on the hazard warning lights and applies the brakes to bring the vehicle to a gentle stop. Part of the optional Travel Assist is Traffic Jam Assist, which combines Predictive Cruise Control with the functions of the Adaptive Lane Assist. It enables automatic starting, braking and steering in congested traffic up to a speed of 60 km/h by adapting to the movements of the surrounding vehicles.

Remote parking from outside the vehicle

The new Remote Park Assist will be available for the second-generation Kodiaq in 2024. It allows the SUV to be manoeuvred into tight parking spaces from outside the vehicle using a smartphone app. The vehicle and smartphone communicate via Bluetooth over a distance of up to five metres. The Kodiaq can be moved forwards and backwards in a straight line using the smartphone as a remote control. During the parking manoeuvre, the system can detect approaching objects and pedestrians and prevent collisions automatically.
