Safety: head-up display with augmented reality and advanced
assistance systems

› Up to nine airbags ensure a high level of passive safety
› Virtual displays are projected onto the windscreen in clear view for the driver
› Optional full-LED Matrix headlights ensure optimum visibility

Mladá Boleslav, 31 January 2022 – The ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features a head-up display with augmented reality, full-LED Matrix headlights and a high level of passive safety with up to nine airbags. Travel Assist 2.5 provides support with longitudinal and lateral steering, while other clever assistance systems warn of potential collisions or make parking more convenient. The head-up display provides the driver with even more targeted information so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road, while the full-LED Matrix headlights provide greater safety when visibility is poor, allowing the driver to leave the high beam on at all times.

Following the ŠKODA debut for the head-up display with augmented reality launched with the ENYAQ iV, this feature is now also available as an option for the ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV. It projects information for the driver onto two different areas of the windscreen. The car’s speed and detected traffic signs, navigation instructions and information from the assistance systems are displayed just above the dashboard in clear view for the driver. Higher up on the windscreen, in the larger projection zone for augmented reality, larger symbols such as directional arrows from the navigation system are displayed and virtually projected onto the road up ahead, also in clear view for the driver. Information relating to Adaptive Lane Assist or Adaptive Cruise Control is also shown here, as are traffic signs and warnings. The driver can individually adjust the position of the display area on the windscreen, set the colour and brightness, and select what information is to be shown in the infotainment system menu.

Up to nine airbags and proactive Crew Protect Assist

The ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV can be equipped with up to nine airbags. Driver and front passenger airbags are fitted as standard, as are front side airbags and two curtain airbags, which cover the side windows in the first and second rows of seats. A central airbag between the front seats reduces the impact between the driver and front passenger in the event of a collision. Two side airbags for the outer rear seats are optional. If the sensors detect an impending collision, the driver initiates a sudden braking manoeuvre, or the car is in danger of skidding or tipping over, the proactive Crew Protect Assist feature will automatically take precautions to protect the vehicle’s occupants. The system will then tension the seat belts and close any open windows.

All ŠKODA assistance systems available

For maximum levels of active and passive safety, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV has been fitted with all of ŠKODA’s assistance systems. Travel Assist 2.5 provides active support for longitudinal and lateral steering and comprises Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Adaptive Lane Assist including roadwork recognition, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. The system is activated at the touch of a button, which is located on the multifunction steering wheel, keeping the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV in its current lane and automatically monitoring the distance to the vehicle in front. In congested traffic, Travel Assist 2.5 can autonomously bring the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV to a stop, make it pull away and follow other vehicles. At speeds of over 90 km/h, the system now assists in changing lanes on the motorway when the indicator is activated, and it provides steering support through tight corners. Travel Assist 2.5 displays the vehicle’s surroundings on the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s screens, allowing the driver to see any objects the vehicle sensors detect. The current version of the system can take over lateral steering in narrow spaces in the city using online information based on current swarm data.

Adaptive Cruise Control, which in its predictive version also incorporates data from the navigation system and detected traffic signs, is now also able to react to obstacles reported via online traffic data. The Travel Assist 2.5 function requires the driver to keep their hands on the steering wheel. If the vehicle detects that the driver is no longer steering, braking or accelerating, Emergency Assist attempts to initially warn them visually, then acoustically and ultimately by jolting the brakes. If the driver fails to react, the hazard lights are activated, the vehicle is brought to a standstill in its current lane, and eCall is triggered.

Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection and Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert warn of collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and static obstacles. Collision Avoidance Assist supports the driver in the event of an impending collision with a pedestrian, cyclist or another vehicle by actively amplifying the steering moment to prevent the accident. When turning left at junctions, Turn Assist warns of detected oncoming traffic at an early stage, automatically bringing the car to a stop if necessary. When a door is opened, Exit Warning alerts the occupant if another vehicle or a cyclist is approaching from behind. It does this acoustically and visually via a light signal on the inside of the wing mirror housing.

New assistance functions for parking

The optional Park Assist feature automatically manoeuvres the vehicle into and out of parallel and bay parking spaces and can now also brake automatically and prevent the car from colliding with pedestrians or objects. With the Trained Parking feature, the system records the route into a frequently used parking space, for example in a narrow and awkward driveway, and can automatically repeat this route at any time. Area View is even better than the optional rear-view camera, as its four cameras create a 360-degree top-down image of the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s immediate surroundings.

High beam can be left on at all times thanks to the optional full-LED Matrix headlights

The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s optional full-LED Matrix headlights significantly increase safety when driving in the dark. Each Matrix high-beam module contains 24 LEDs, which can be controlled individually and enables the driver to have the high beam on at all times without dazzling other road users. If a camera on the windscreen detects vehicles as well as people and objects reflecting the light, the intelligent lighting technology automatically turns off individual segments of the light beam.
