New ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS - Safety
The system is automatically activated by the light sensors, which switch the headlights on in low light conditions. The AFS headlight control system changes the geometry of the light beam, adapting the light pattern on the road to different driving situations like: Load, Steering angle, Rain and Speed. The AFS optimises illumination and enhances safety by enabling quicker response to obstacles. It gradually shifts the light patterns so that it does not disturb the driver.
The New ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS’s state-of-the-art hands free parking doesn’t just give you greater comfort and orientation while parking. It gives you confidence to park like a pro every time. Hands free parking minimises the hassle of parking in tight spots by automatically selecting an appropriate parking place in a row of parallel or perpendicularly parked vehicles. When parallel parking, it only needs a space 60 cm longer than the car itself. In today’s crowded cities and space-starved streets, hands-free parking is a blessing indeed.
This clever assistant system evaluates data from the power steering sensors to detect any driver fatigue behaviour. In such cases, the colour Maxi DOT display warns the driver to take a break.
Enjoy easier parking by equipping your car with the rear-view camera located on the handle of the 5th door. It monitors the space behind the car and indicates driving lanes, based on the vehicle width.
Upon activation, head airbags create a wall protecting the front and rear occupants against head injury.
While the driver airbag is enclosed in the steering wheel, the passenger airbag is located in the dashboard.
These four airbags protect the pelvis and chest of the driver and other passengers in the event of a side collision.
This function switches on the right or left fog light separately - depending on the steering angle or by switching on the turn signal lights for the relevant side. They illuminate blind spots created by dark areas around the corners by lighting the space the car is about to turn into. This improves visibility for the driver without dazzling oncoming obstacles.
With Hill Hold Control, you will start off smoothly uphill without having to use the handbrake or risk of inadvertently rolling backwards.
