To prevent your windows fogging up, ŠKODA cars have an integrated moisture sensor that helps the air-conditioning system assess the dew point effect on the windscreen. “In AUTO mode, the system reacts in advance to prevent fogging before it happens,” says Ondřej Radina from the air-conditioning development team at ŠKODA. He explains that to do this the system increases both the flow and the temperature of the air blowing onto the windscreen. If the surrounding temperature permits, the compressor is activated as well. Another cause of windscreen fogging can be having air recirculation constantly activated or the air-conditioning switched off, both of which result in an increase in humidity inside the car. Ondřej Radina therefore recommends keeping the system in AUTO mode.
This original ŠKODA product helps prevent ice forming on your windscreen, saving you time and effort. It is effective in a wide range of temperatures, from -30 °C to +3 °C.
The best prevention against windscreen fogging and ice forming inside your car is keeping it dry. That’s why you should make sure you knock the snow off your shoes before getting in. And taking the mats out and drying them in your home overnight is a great help. For the winter months, you can also replace them with rubber mats that make it easy to drain off any water. You can find the right sizes for your ŠKODA model in the official e-shop. Whether your windscreen freezes up on the outside or inside, it's a problem that's always easy to solve. So always make sure your vision is not obscured before you set off!
