For the first time, the new ŠKODA Superb features proactive occupant protection, Crew Protect Assist. The entry-level system prepares the driver and front passenger in advance of an impending collision. In critical situations, e.g. emergency braking, the driver’s and front passenger’s seat belts are automatically pre-tensioned. In the event of unstable driving situations, such as severe over- or understeering, Crew Protect Assist also engages with ESC to close the side windows and sunroof to a residual opening in order to prevent foreign objects from entering the vehicle. Working together with the front radar, Front Crew Protect Assist can react in advance.
