Proactive occupant protection (Crew Protect Assist)

Introduction

ProActive passenger protection (following known as system) increases pas-

senger protection in the front seats in situations that could lead to vehicle im-

pact or overturning.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance sys-

tems

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

Function

Read and observe   on page 253 first.

In critical driving situations (e.g. during emergency braking or a sudden change

in direction), the following steps can be taken separately or combined in order

to reduce the risk of serious injury.

The front passenger's and driver's seatbelts, if worn, are automatically ten-

sioned closely over the body.

Opened electrically powered door windows are closed automatically up to a

gap of about 5 cm from the edge.

The sliding/tilting roof is closed.

Once the critical driving situation has passed, the tension on the seatbelts will

be released again.
The system operates at two levels of protection.

The first level of protection

The system already intervenes in situations that may occur during dynamic

driving. As a result, this primarily helps to keep the driver and the passenger in

the correct seated position.
The first protection level can be deactivated in one of the following ways.

In the infotainment system, in menu 



/  tap on function surface  → Driv-

er assistance.

Deactivating the TCS

» page 218

.

By selecting the driving mode Sport 

» page 253

.

By selecting the driving mode Offroad 

» page 219

.

After switching the ignition off and on, the system is activated in both levels of

protection.

The second level of protection

The system intervenes only if the situation is evaluated as critical, such as

when panic braking at high speeds.
This level of protection cannot be deactivated.

Vehicles with the Front Assist system

Using this information, a system intervention may also occur when there is the

danger of a collision with an obstacle detected in front of the vehicle.

Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)

Introduction

Fig. 309 

Sensor for Lane Assist

The lane departure warning (following known as system) helps to keep the ve-

hicle between the boundary lines of a lane.
The system recognises the boundary lines of the lane using a sensor 

» Fig. 309

.

When the vehicle approaches a detected line between lanes, the system

makes a light movement of the steering wheel in the opposite direction to the

boundary line. This corrective steering intervention can be instructionly overridden

at any time.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

Lane Assist can help you keep the vehicle within the lane. However, it

does not steer the vehicle for you. The driver retains full responsibility for

steering at all times.

Some objects or markings on the road can be recognised as the boundary

lines - an erroneous steering intervention may be the result.

WARNING

The system may not be able to recognise the boundary line, or recognise it

incorrectly, for example, in the following situations.

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

When driving in “sharp” bends.

The sensor is blinded by the sun or oncoming traffic.

The field of view of the sensor is limited by an obstacle or a preceding ve-

hicle.

254

Driving

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

CAUTION

Do not attach any stickers or similar objects in front of the sensor on the wind-

screen to avoid impairing the functions of the system.

Note

The system is designed for driving on motorways and roads with adequate

longitudinal markings.

The system can detect both continuous and broken lines.

255

Assist systems

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

If the position within the lane is changed, the system quickly adapts and holds

the newly-selected position.

Steering wheel vibrations

In the following situations, it may occasionally be the case that due to the

steering wheel vibrations the syst4em indicates that a driver steering interven-

tion is required.

The system is not able to keep the vehicle by a within the lane due to a steer-

ing intervention.

During an intense system-related steering intervention, the system suddenly

cannot recognize the boundary lines.

WARNING

The system function may be restricted if, for example there is danger due

to ruts on a downhill road or in a crosswind.

Activation / deactivation

Assistant for emergencies

Introduction

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

The system is intended for emergency situations when the driver is sud-

denly unable to take over the steering task. Therefore, never try to test out

the system - there is a risk of an accident!

Function

Read and observe   on page 257 first.

The assistant for emergencies (following known as system) detects inactivity

of the driver, which for example can be caused by a sudden loss of conscious-

ness. The system then performs measures as safely as possible to decelerate

the vehicle to a stop.
Only vehicles with automatic transmission, Lane Assist and ACC can be equip-

ped with the system.

The Emergency Situation assistant works using the functions of the Lane As-

sist systems 

» page 254

 and ACC 

» page 244

, For this reason, the chapters re-

lating to these systems must be read carefully and the safety instructions lis-

ted therein must be observed.

System intervention

If the system detects the driver's inactivity, it draws attention to this fact by a

beep and a message on the display of the instrument cluster. It keeps the vehi-

cle in its lane.
If the driver does not take over the steering even after a repeated warning, the

system automatically brakes the vehicle and after it has come to a standstill

the parking brake switch on.
With automatic braking, the hazard warning system is switched on.
The automatic braking interventions can be cancelled by pressing the acceler-

ator pedal or by means of a steering intervention.

Operating conditions

er.

Vertical load with mounted accessories

Read and observe   on page 262 first.

When using the accessories (e.g. bicycle carrier), the maximum length and the

permissible total weight including load must be considered.
The maximum length of the mounted accessories (from the ball of the towing

device) may not exceed 70 cm.
The permissible total weight of the installed accessory, including its load, cor-

responds to the maximum trailer load on trailers.
If the maximum trailer load in trailer operation is more than 75 kg, then the

permissible total weight of the mounted accessories including their load must

not exceed 75 kg.
This value applies if the center of gravity is at a distance of no more than 30

cm from the towing device ball head.
If the distance of the centre gravity of the load to the ball head of the tow-

ing device is greater than 30 cm, then the max. permissible total weight of

the accessory, including its load, decreases (e.g. at a distance of 60 cm

from the ball head, the permissible weight decreases by half).

CAUTION

Never exceed the permissible total weight of the accessories incl. load and

maximum length of the accessories – There is a risk of damage to the towing

device.

ry) the trailer / accessory lights should be checked for function.

Never use the securing eye to tow - risk of accident!

CAUTION

An improperly connected electrical installation of the trailer (accessories) can

lead to the inoperability of the vehicle electronics.

The total power consumption of all the connected loads to the trailer power

supply must not exceed 350 watts, otherwise there is a risk of damage to the

electrical system of the vehicle.

Loading a trailer

Correct the tyre inflation pressure on the vehicle for “full load”

» page 285

.

Distribution of the cargo

Distribute the cargo in the trailer in such a way that heavy items are located as

close to the trailer axle as possible. Secure the load from slipping.
The distribution of the weight is very poor if your vehicle is unladen and the

trailer is laden. Drive with particular caution if you cannot avoid driving with

this combination.

WARNING

Sliding cargo can significantly adversely affect stability and driving safety -

risk of accident!

WARNING

The maximum vertical load and the maximum trailer load must not be ex-

ceeded - there is risk of accident!

Towing a trailer

Driving speed

For safety reasons, do not drive faster than 100 km/h when hitching a trailer.
Immediately reduce your speed as soon as even the slightest swaying of the

trailer is detected. Never attempt to stop the trailer from “swaying” by accel-

erating.

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.

Anti-theft alarm system

The alarm is triggered if, with a vehicle with activated anti-theft alarm (herein-

after only warning system), the electrical connection to the trailer (accessory)

is interrupted.

Always switch off the anti-theft alarm system before a trailer (accessory) is

coupled or uncoupled 

» page 66

.

Conditions for including a trailer (accessory) in the anti-theft alarm system.

The vehicle is factory-fitted with an anti-theft alarm system and a towing

device.
The trailer (accessory) is electrically connected to the towing vehicle by

means of the trailer socket.
The electrical system of the vehicle and trailer (accessory) is functional.
The vehicle is locked and the anti-theft alarm system is activated.
The trailer (accessory) is not equipped with LED taillights.

General Maintenance

Care and maintenance

Service work, adjustments and technical alterations

Introduction

The instructions and guidelines from ŠKODA AUTO must be observed when

carrying out any modifications, repairs or technical alterations to your vehicle.
Adhering to these instructions and guidelines helps ensure road safety and

helps keep your vehicle in a good technical condition.

WARNING

Adjustments, repairs and technical changes to the vehicle are to be car-

ried out only by a specialist garage. Improperly conducted work (including

work on the electronic components and their software) can cause faults -

there is a risk of accidents and increased wear on parts!

We advise you only to use ŠKODA Original Accessories and ŠKODA Orig-

inal Parts which have been expressly approved for use on your vehicle. Reli-

ability, safety and suitability for your vehicle are guaranteed with these.

ŠKODA AUTO cannot assume any liability for products which have not

been approved by ŠKODA even though these may be products with a type

approval or have been approved by a nationally recognised testing labora-

tory.

Vehicle operating under different weather conditions

Read and observe   on page 267 first.

If you would like to operate your vehicle in countries other than those with the

intended weather conditions, you should contact a ŠKODA partner. They will

advise you if certain precautions need to be taken to ensure the full function-

ing of the vehicle or to prevent damage (e.g. coolant / battery replacement

etc.).

All ŠKODA Service Partners operate according to the most recent guidelines

and instructions from ŠKODA AUTO . All service and repair work is therefore

carried out on time and at the appropriate quality. Adhering to these instruc-

tions and guidelines helps ensure road safety and helps keep your vehicle in a

good technical condition.
We therefore advise you to have all modifications, repairs and technical altera-

tions to your vehicle carried out by a ŠKODA Service Partner.

ŠKODA Original parts

We recommend the use of ŠKODA Original Parts for your vehicle, as these

parts are approved by ŠKODA AUTO. These parts correspond exactly to the

ŠKODA AUTO regulations and are identical to the parts used in series produc-

tion.

Care and maintenance

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

ŠKODA Service Partners are liable for any defects of ŠKODA Genuine Acces-

sories for a period of 2 years after installation or delivery in accordance with

the materials defect liability, unless agreed otherwise in the purchase agree-

ment or any other agreements.

Spoiler

Read and observe   on page 267 first.

WARNING

If your vehicle is equipped with an original spoiler on the front bumper in

combination with the spoiler on the boot lid, the following instructions

must be observed - otherwise there is a risk of accidents and serious inju-

ries!

The vehicle must always be equipped with a spoiler on the front bumper

only in combination with the corresponding spoiler on the boot lid.

This kind of spoiler cannot be left on the front bumper either on its own,

in combination with another spoiler not on the luggage compartment lid or

in combination with an unsuitable spoiler on the luggage compartment lid.

We recommend that you consult the ŠKODA Service Partner for any re-

pairs to or replacement, addition or removal of spoilers.

Improperly conducted work on the spoilers of your vehicle may result in

malfunction.

Component protection

Read and observe   on page 267 first.

Some electronic vehicle components (such as the instrument cluster) are fac-

tory-equipped with component protection. This ensures the functional limita-

tion of these components in a non-legitimate installation in another vehicle

(e.g. after a theft) or operation outside the vehicle.

Airbags

Read and observe   on page 267 first.

WARNING

Modifications, repairs and technical alterations that have been carried out

unprofessionally can cause damage and operational faults, and can also se-

riously impair the effectiveness of the airbag system – risk of accident and

fatal injury!

A change to the vehicle's wheel suspension, including the use of non-ap-

proved wheels and tyre combinations, can alter the functioning of the air-

bag system - risk of accident and fatal injury!

WARNING

No changes may be made to parts of the airbag system, the front bumper

and the body.

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 is triggered, the airbag system must be exchanged.

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). The resulting dam-

age can negatively affect the function of the airbag system - there is a risk

of accidents 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 with removed inner door panels or openings in the panels.

Cleaning and care
