Automatic brake assist

Read and observe   and   on page 118 first.

Automatic brake assist when speeding
If a velocity of 7 km / h is exceeded during the parking manoeuvre for the first
time, the speed will be automatically reduced by the system to less than 7 km /
h. This prevents the parking manoeuvre from aborting.

Automatic emergency braking
If the system detects a risk of collision during parking, automatic emergency
braking takes place to prevent a collision.
The parking is terminated by the emergency braking.

CAUTION

The automatic emergency braking is not triggered by the system when the
parking process stops due to the speed of 7 km / hr being exceeded!

Malfunctions

Read and observe   and   on page 118 first.

If, for some unknown reason, the system is not available, an appropriate mes-
sage appears in the display of the instrument cluster.

System unavailable
If the system is not available because the vehicle has a fault, a message ap-
pears concerning the unavailability. Seek help from a specialist garage.

System fault
In the case of a system fault, an error message appears. Seek help from a spe-
cialist garage.

Cruise Control System

Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:
Operation

121

Operation description

122

The Cruise Control System (CCS) maintains a set speed without you having to
actuate the accelerator pedal. The state where the CCS maintains the speed is
referred to hereinafter as the control.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be
observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

Operation

Read and observe   on page 121 first.

Basic requirements for start of control

The CCS is activated.
On vehicles with a instruction transmission, the second gear or higher is en-
gaged.
On vehicles with an automatic transmission, the selector lever is in the
D/S position or in the Tiptronic position.
The current speed is higher than 20 km/h.

This, however, is only possible to the extent permitted by the engine output
and braking power of the vehicle.

WARNING

If the engine output or engine braking effect is insufficient to maintain the
set speed, the driver must assume control of the accelerator and brake
pedals!

Once the controls are activated, the CCS maintains the vehicle at the set
speed; the warning light 

 lights up in the instrument cluster.

After the interruption in control, the stored speed can be resumed by pressing
the 

B

 button.

Controls are automatically interrupted if any of the following occur.

By pressing the brake or clutch pedal.

When one of the brake assist systems (e.g. ESC) intervenes.

Through an airbag deployment.

WARNING

Always deactivate the cruise control system after use to prevent the sys-

tem being switched on unintentionally.

Control may only be resumed if the set speed is not too high for the cur-

rent traffic conditions.

Note

During control, speed can be increased by pressing the accelerator pedal. Re-
leasing the accelerator pedal will cause the speed to drop again to the set
speed.

Fatigue detection

The fatigue detection system (hereinafter referred to as system) recommends
the driver takes a break from driving when driver fatigue can be detected due
to the driver's steering behaviour.
From the starting of the journey, the system evaluates the steering behaviour
at speeds 65-200 km/h. If, while driving, there have been changes in the steer-
ing behaviours that are evaluated by the system as indicating possible fatigue,
a break recommendation is issued.
Conditions under which a break from driving is detected by the system

The vehicle is stopped and the ignition switched off.

The vehicle is stopped, the seat belt removed and the driver's door opened.

The vehicle is stopped for more than 15 minutes.

If none of these conditions are met or if the driving style is not changed, the
system recommends a driving break again after 15 minutes.
The system can be activated / deactivated in MAXI DOT display 

» page 43

.

Pause recommendation
The icon appears and the following message for a few seconds in the display
of the instrument cluster  and a message about the detected fatigue. An au-
dible signal is also emitted.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must

be observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

For the driving ability is always the driver's responsibility. Never drive if

you feel tired.

The system may not detect all cases where a break is needed.

Therefore, take regular, sufficient breaks during long trips.

There will be no system warning during the so-called micro-sleep.

122

Driving

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note

In some situations, the system may evaluate the driving incorrectly and thus

mistakenly recommend a break (e.g. sporty driving, adverse weather condi-
tions or poor road conditions).

The system is designed primarily for use on motorways.

Tyre pressure monitoring

Fig. 142 
Key for storing the pressure val-
ues

The tyre pressure monitoring function (hereinafter referred to as the system)
monitors the tyre pressure while driving.
If the tyre inflation pressure changes, the warning light 

 lights up in the in-

strument cluster and an audible signal is heard 

» page 36

 Tyre pressure.

The system can only function properly if the tyres have the prescribed inflation
pressure and these pressure values are stored in the system.

Procedure for storing the tyre pressure values

Inflate all the tyres to the specified pressure.

Switch on the ignition.

Press the button  

» Fig. 142

 and hold.

The warning light 

 lights up in the instrument cluster.

An acoustic signal and the control indicator provide information about the
storage of the tyre pressure values.

Release the button  .

Always save the tyre pressure values in the system if one of the following
events occurs.

Change of tyre inflation pressure.

Change one or more wheels.

Change in position of a wheel on the vehicle.

Illumination of the warning light

 in the instrument cluster.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must

be observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

Having the correct tyre inflation pressure is always the driver's responsi-

bility. Tyre pressure should be checked regularly 

» page 151

.

The system cannot warn in case of very rapid tyre inflation pressure loss,

e.g. in case of sudden tyre damage.

Before storing the pressures, the tyres must be inflated to the specified

inflation pressure 

» page 151

. If the wrong pressure valuesare stored, the

system may not issue any warnings, even if the tyre pressure is too low.

CAUTION

Save the tyre pressure values every 10,000 km or 1x annually to ensure correct
system functioning.

ating.

129

Towing device and trailer

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brakes
Apply the brakes in good time! If the trailer is fitted with a trailer brake, apply
the brakes gently at first, then brake firmly. This will avoid brake jolts resulting
from the trailer wheels locking.
On downhill sections shift down a gear in good time to also use the engine as
a brake.

WARNING

Always drive particularly carefully with the trailer.

CAUTION

With frequent towing, the vehicle is excessively loaded so this must also be
checked between service intervals.

WARNING

No changes may be made to airbag system components, the front bump-

er and the bodywork.

Any work on the airbag system including the installation and removal of

system components due to other repair work (e.g. removal of the steering
wheel) must only be carried out by a specialist garage.

Do not manipulate individual parts of the airbag system, as this might re-

sult in the airbag being deployed.

If the airbag has been deployed, the airbag system must be replaced.

WARNING

The airbag system operates using pressure sensors located in the front
doors. For this reason, no adjustments may be carried out to the doors or
door panels (e.g. installation of additional loudspeakers). Resulting damage
can impair the functioning of the airbag system - There is a risk of acci-
dents and fatal injuries! The following guidelines must be observed.

Any work on the front doors and their door panels must be carried out by

a specialist garage.

Never drive the vehicle with the inner door panels removed or with open-

ings in the panelling.

in order to prevent you from forgetting any

» page 44

.

The completion of services can be verified through the printed verification
from the digital service schedule and the respective receipts.
The specified service intervals are tailored to normal operating conditions.
In the case of aggravated operating conditions, it will be necessary to have
some service work carried out before the date of the next regular service or
between the specified service intervals. This applies mainly to the cleaning or
the replacement of the air filter insert in regions with heavy dust pollution as
well as checking and replacing the toothed belt, but also to vehicles with die-
sel particle filters, which can put greater strain on the engine oil.
The following is taken to mean aggravated operating conditions:

Fuel containing sulphur.

Frequent short trips.

Longer periods of engine idling (e.g. taxis).

Operation in areas with heavy dust pollution.

Frequent trailer operation.

Predominantly stop-and-go traffic as is e.g. often the case in city driving.

Operation predominantly during winter.

You will be told at the specialist garage whether the operating conditions of
your vehicle may make it necessary for service work to be carried out between
the normal service intervals.
Different service charges may apply according to the particular scope of work
required, the vehicle type and specification, and your vehicle’s condition.

Note

The customer is responsible for covering the cost of all services including

changing or replenishing the oil, even during the warranty period, unless sta-
ted otherwise in the ŠKODA AUTO warranty terms or other agreements.

You will be informed about the service checks and actions at each service by

the specialist garage.

Overview of service intervals

Fig. 153 
Vehicle data: Service Interval

The service interval specified by the manufacturer is indicated on the vehicle
data carrier 

» Fig. 153

 which can be found both in this Owner's Manual as well

as in the vehicle.
One of the following service intervals applies for your vehicle.

Fixed service interval QI1.

Fixed service interval QI2.

Fixed service interval QI3.

Fixed service interval QI4.

Variable service interval QI6.

In order to operate a vehicle with a variable service interval, it must only be
filled and topped up with the prescribed engine oil.
If this engine oil is not available, the oil change is subject to a fixed service in-
terval. In this case, the vehicle must be changed to the fixed service interval.

Note

The corresponding motor oil specifications

For vehicles with variable service interval QI6 you can initiate a change to the

fixed service interval or back to the variable service interval to be carried out
by a specialist garage.

WARNING

The brake fluid must always be changed after the first 3 years and then ev-
ery 2 years. Longer intervals between changing the brake fluid can cause
vapour bubbles to form in the brake system when braking sharply. This can
impair the efficiency of the brakes – There is a risk of an accident!

Note

For diesel operation with a high sulphur content, the oil must be changed ev-
ery 7 500 km. Ask your specialist garage for information on the countries
where diesel fuel has a high sulphur content.

Variable service interval QI6

The oil change service intervals depend on the intensity at which the vehicle is
driven and the local conditions in which the vehicle is used. For example, your
vehicle is subjected to different demands when driven over short distances
than when driven over long distances. The intervals are therefore variable.

Digital Service Plan

A specialist garage will not record the work carried out in a service evidence in
this Owner's Manual, but in the service information system called the Digital
Service Plan.
We therefore recommend that you always have the record of work carried out
in a service printed out for you.

Benefits of the Digital Service Plan

High level of security preventing manipulation of the entries.

Transparent documentation of service work carried out.

Protection against loss or damage of the entries, you receive a complete re-
cord of the work carried out, if required.

Option to receive the record in electronic form.

The vehicle can be serviced in any specialist garage (also abroad) – the data-
base is accessible worldwide.

Increased transparency when purchasing a used vehicle due to entries being
stored centrally.

The system entries support you in making a claim on the ŠKODA extended
warranty and mobility guarantees.

Cleaning and care

Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:
Car washing

135

Exterior car care

136

Caring for the interior

138

Regular and thorough care helps to retain the value of your vehicle.
The instructions for use on the packaging must be observed when using care
products. We recommend that you use ŠKODA Original Accessories care prod-
ucts.

WARNING

Vehicle care products may be harmful to your health if not used according

to the instructions.

Always keep the vehicle care products safe from people who are not com-

pletely independent, e.g. children - danger of poisoning!

CAUTION

Do not use any insect sponges, rough kitchen sponges or similar cleaning

products – risk of damaging the paintwork surface.

Do not use aggressive cleaning agents or chemical solvents - There is a dan-

ger of damaging the surface to be cleaned.

Note

We recommend that the vehicle is cleaned and maintained at a ŠKODA service
partner.

Car washing

Read and observe   and   on page 135 first.

The best way to protect your vehicle against harmful environmental influences
is frequent washing.
The longer insect residues, bird droppings, road salt and other aggressive de-
posits remain on the paintwork of your vehicle, the more detrimental their de-
structive effect can be. High temperatures, such as those caused by intensive
sun's rays, accentuate this caustic effect.
It is also essential to thoroughly clean the underside of the vehicle at the end
of the winter.

Washing by hand
Wash the vehicle from top to bottom, with a soft sponge or a wash mitt and
plenty of water, and, if necessary, with the appropriate detergents. Wash out
the sponge or washing glove thoroughly at short intervals.
For wheels, door sills and lower areas of the vehicle use a different sponge.
Give the vehicle a good rinse after washing it and dry it off using a chamois
leather.

Automatic Car Washes
The usual precautionary measures must be taken before washing the vehicle
(e.g. closing the windows and the tilt/slide roof etc.).

135

Care and maintenance

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If your vehicle is fitted with any particular attached parts (e.g. spoiler, roof rack
system, aerial etc.) it is best to consult the operator of the car wash system be-
forehand.
After an automatic wash with wax treatment, the wiper blades should be
cleaned with cleaning agents specially designed for the purpose, and then de-
greased.

Pressure Washers
When washing the vehicle with a high-pressure cleaner, the instructions for
use of the equipment must be observed. This particularly applies to instruc-
tions regarding the pressure and spraying distance from the vehicle surface.

WARNING

When washing your vehicle in the winter: Water and ice in the braking

system can affect the braking efficiency – risk of accident!

Take care when cleaning the underbody or the inside of the wheel wells -

there is a risk of injury from sharp metal parts!

CAUTION

Do not wash the vehicle in direct sunlight, do not exert pressure on the body

while washing. The temperature of the washing water should be no more than
60 °C max. - otherwise there is a risk of damaging the vehicle paint.

Before driving through a car wash fold in the exterior mirrors - There is a risk

of damage.

For vehicles with roof antenna the antenna rod should be unscrewed before

driving through a car wash - there is a risk of damage.

CAUTION

Washing the vehicle with high-pressure cleaners

Films should not be washed with any high-pressure cleaners - There is a risk

of damage.

Do not aim the water jet directly at the lock cylinders or the door or opening

joints when washing the vehicle in the winter – there is a risk of freezing.

Hold a large spraying distance to the rear camera lens, to plastic parts (e.g.

Roof racks, spoilers, protective strips and the like), as well as soft materials
such as rubber hoses or insulation material.

The sensors of the parking aid can be sprayed only for a short time and there

must be a minimum distance of 10 cm - there is a risk of damage.
