To feel really comfortable on the move, a pleasantly warm interior is essential. Modern ŠKODA cars aren’t content with just traditional heating. Have you tried yet driving a car with a heated steering wheel? For more comfort, there are also heated seats. And a heated windshield and heated rear-view mirrors will make your journey safer. Independent heating with remote control will allow you to warm up your car beforehand. You will never yearn for the days of climbing into a cold car.

Umbrella and ICE scraper always at hand

With all the extra tasks that winter requires, you will appreciate the quality of the car’s accessories even more. So that a ice scraper is always close at hand, one is located inside the fuel filler flap on most of ŠKODA vehicles. A good view from all windows is fundamental to a safe ride, and therefore you certainly will not regret having another extra ice scraper in your car. In case your car’s roof or windshield will be covered with snow, a snow brush will come in handy.


A smart solution for winter and all yearlong is seen in the umbrellas sensibly stored within the doors of the vehicle. If you are out and about without having waterproof clothing, you will certainly appreciate their protection from rain or snow.

Skis in a sack or on the roof

Have you ever been stuck in snow while traveling? For just such situations, it is always good to have a shovel in your car for digging yourself out. Afterwards, you can return the wet and dirty tools to the boot without worrying about getting anything dirty, because its interior is protected by a rubber insert with a raised edge all around the perimeter. If need be, you can lift the dirtied rubber unit right out and easily wash it with water.

Do you and your family have a lot of luggage? Skis and snowboards combined with all the accessories plus winter clothing take up a lot of space. In this case, a roof rack is the preferred solution for transporting winter sports gear. You also can install a large box on it to handle even bulky loads, thereby leaving plenty of room for passengers inside the car.
