Safety: Travel Assist and up to nine airbags

› Travel Assist includes five to eight assistance systems
› Increased comfort thanks to Park Assist, Area View and Trailer Assist
› Optional Crew Protect Assist reacts to impending collisions

Mladá Boleslav / Megève, 28 June 2021 – The refreshed ŠKODA KODIAQ offers improved assistance systems and safety features, as well as nine airbags, to protect its occupants in the best possible way. The optional Crew Protect Assist feature reacts to imminent collisions to help reduce the severity of an accident. Travel Assist incorporates five to eight assistance systems, including Predictive Cruise Control, Adaptive Lane Assist and an improved version of Traffic Sign Recognition.

The ŠKODA KODIAQ can be equipped with up to nine airbags to fully protect its occupants in the event of an accident. Driver and front passenger airbags are fitted as standard in EU countries, as are front side airbags, curtain airbags and a knee airbag for the driver. Side airbags in the second row of seats are optional together with Crew Protect Assist. If the vehicle sensors detect an imminent collision or register sudden braking, this system automatically closes any open windows and the panoramic roof, activates the hazard lights and pre-tensions the front seat belts.



A wealth of assistance systems increase safety and comfort

Numerous assistance systems are available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ which aim to prevent accidents from occurring. Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian Protection and City Emergency Brake function are included as standard within the EU. Up to a distance of 70 m, the optional Side Assist warns the driver of vehicles approaching from behind in good time.

Travel Assist makes use of radar- and camera-based systems as well as navigation data

Journeys are made safer by Travel Assist, which is available in two versions and includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). This uses images from the camera on the windscreen as well as data from the navigation system and, if desired, reacts in good time to speed limits or corners. In combination with a DSG, the ACC’s Stop & Go function can automatically bring the vehicle to a standstill and have it pull away again automatically within up to three seconds. Travel Assist also includes a more precise version of Traffic Sign Recognition (thanks to an improved camera), Adaptive Lane Assist (now able to identify road works and all road markings), Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. The enhanced version of Travel Assist also includes Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert and Park Assist. Using Hands-on Detect, this system also checks whether the driver is touching the steering wheel every 15 seconds or whether they may no longer have control due to a potential medical emergency. In this case, Emergency Assist activates the hazard lights and brings the car to a stop in its current lane.

Convenient parking assistance

In addition to the optional rear-view camera, Area View provides an overview of the car’s immediate surroundings when parking or manoeuvring. For this purpose, four cameras create a 360-degree image around the vehicle, which is shown on the central display. The integrated Manoeuvre Assist detects obstacles in front of and behind the vehicle and brakes automatically if necessary. The current version of the optional Park Assist feature takes over the steering when driving in and out of parallel and bay parking spaces, and can now also automatically park forwards into bays. If desired, Trailer Assist can lend a helping hand when reverse parking while towing, by turning the steering wheel and guiding the vehicle and trailer to follow the angle the driver would like to use (set by the driver using the turn-switch for the wing mirrors).
