Rear View Camera

Introduction

The rear view camera (following as system) helps the driver when parking and

manoeuvring by displaying the area behind the vehicle on Infotainment screen

(hereinafter only known as screen).
There are four modes available for different situations during the park and ma-

noeuvring action. The mode change is carried out using the function surfaces

on the screen 

» page 222

.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

The system displays auxiliary boxes and lines regardless of the current ve-

hicle environment. The driver is responsible for checking that there is no

obstacle in the selected parking space and that the vehicle can safely park

in this space.

The camera may not be soiled or obscured, otherwise the system func-

tion will be significantly affected - there is a risk of accident. For informa-

tion on cleaning 

» page 262

.

CAUTION

The camera image is distorted by contrast with eyesight. For this reason, the

screen display is only of limited use for estimating distances to following vehi-

cles.

Some items, such as thin posts, chain link fences, grilles or uneven road sur-

faces may not be properly displayed in terms of screen resolution.

In a crash or damage the vehicle's rear camera can possibly deviate from the

correct position. If this is the case, have the sensor checked by a specialist ga-

rage.

Note

The camera is equipped with a cleaning system. Spraying takes place automat-

ically, together with spraying the rear or windscreen.

Park Assist

Introduction

Park Assist (following referred to system) helps drivers park in suitable parallel

and perpendicular parking places or also to manoeuvre out of parallel parking

spaces.
The system takes over the steering movements only when entering or leaving

a parking space. The driver operates the brake, accelerator or clutch pedal and

the shift / selector lever.
The state in which the steering wheel is operated by the system, is referred to

as parking operation.
The Park Assist is an extension of the parking aid 

» page 215

 and operates on

the basis of data collected by the ultrasonic sensors.
For this reason, the chapter on the parking aid is to be read carefully and

the safety notes are to be observed.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

During the parking process, the system automatically performs rapid

steering movements. While it is doing so, do not place your hands between

the steering wheel – risk of injury!

During parking manoeuvres on loose or slippery surfaces (gravel, snow,

ice, etc.) it is possible to stray from the calculated road. It is therefore rec-

ommended that you do not use the system in such situations.

CAUTION

The correct evaluation of the parking space and the parking procedure de-

pends on the circumference of the wheels on the vehicle.

The system only works correctly if the vehicle is fitted with the wheel size

approved by ŠKODA AUTO.

Do not use the system if snow chains or an emergency wheel are fitted.

If wheels other than those approved by ŠKODA AUTO are fitted, the result-

ing position of the vehicle in the parking space can differ slightly. This can be

avoided by readjusting the system at a specialist garage.

CAUTION

If other vehicles are parked behind or on the curb, the system can drive your

vehicle over the kerb or up to the kerb - there is a risk of damage to the

wheels. Intervene in time if necessary.

Note

We recommend performing the parking at a safe speed of up to about 5

km/h.

The parking procedure can be stopped at any time by pressing the 

» Fig. 270

 on page 225 button or by a steering intervention.

Trailer manoeuvring assistant (Trailer Assist)

Introduction

The trailer manoeuvring assistant (below only system) helps the driver when

reversing with a trailer.
When manoeuvring, the system only undertakes the steering movement. The

driver operates the brake, accelerator or clutch pedal and the shift / selector

lever.
The state in which the steering wheel is operated by the system, is referred to

as parking operation.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

The system is not oriented to the area around the vehicle, there is no ob-

stacle detection.

During manoeuvring, always observe the movement of the trailer and if

necessary cancel the manoeuvring autonomously to prevent accidents or

damage to the vehicle and the trailer.

During the parking process, the system automatically performs rapid

steering movements. While it is doing so, do not place your hands between

the steering wheel – risk of injury!

During parking manoeuvres on loose or slippery surfaces (gravel, snow,

ice, etc.) it is possible to stray from the calculated road. Therefore, use the

system with extreme caution in such situations.

CAUTION

The trailer position is evaluated by the rear camera based on the bending an-

gle of the drawbar and the steering movement carried out by the system. For

this reason, the drawbar must not be obstructed by external influences.

The rear camera lens must not be contaminated, otherwise the system may

be unavailable or the system function my be significantly impaired.

Note

We recommend performing the parking at a safe speed of up to about 5

km/h.

The parking process can be terminated at any time by pressing the button 

» Fig. 275

 on page 229 or by a steering intervention.

The correct system function can only be ensured if a one- or two-axle trailer

is hitched without steered axle.

Operating principle

Fig. 275 

System button

Read and observe   and   on page 229 first.

The trailer position is detected by the system based on the information of the

rear camera. Trailer is steered in the direction set by the driver using steering

wheel movements.

Conditions for the system function

The engine is running.
The system is activated.
The parking aid is activated.
The driver's door and the boot lid are fully closed.
The trailer is plugged into the trailer socket.
The trailer is not veering too much.

Determining the drawbar length

The system must know the drawbar length in order that the driver is offered

the maximum possible setting angle with respect to the target position of the

trailer.
The system needs some turning manoeuvres or cornering with a hitched trailer

in order to determine the drawbar length.

Cruise Control System

Introduction

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

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

After pressing the clutch pedal, no interrupted control occurs! For exam-

ple, if a different gear is engaged and the clutch pedal is released, control is

continued.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Introduction

The Adaptive Cruise Control (hereinafter referred to as ACC) maintains the set

speed and at the same time the distance to the vehicle ahead without the ac-

celerator or brake pedal being pressed.
The front of the vehicle and the distance to the vehicle ahead is monitored by

a radar sensor 

» page 210

.

The state in which the ACC maintains the speed or the proximity is described

as control from here on.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

The driver must always be ready to take over the operation of the accel-

erator and brake pedal.

The ACC does not react when approaching a stationary obstacle, such as

traffic jams, vehicle breakdowns or vehicles waiting at a traffic light.

The ACC does not respond to crossing or oncoming objects.

If the ACC does not decelerate fast enough, immediately apply the vehi-

cle's foot brake.

WARNING

For safety reasons, do not use the ACC under the following conditions.

When driving in turning lanes, motorway exits or construction sites, to

avoid an unwanted acceleration to the stored speed.

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

When road conditions are poor (e.g. ice, slippery road, gravel, dirt road).

Driving in “sharp” corners or in steep gradients / on steep inclines.

When driving through places where metal objects (such as metal build-

ings, railway tracks, etc.) can be found.

When driving through very divided and enclosed spaces (such as large-

capacity garages, car ferries, tunnels and the like.).

Note

The ACC is designed primarily for use on motorways.

The ACC reduces the speed by automatically releasing the accelerator or by

means of a braking procedure as appropriate. If the brakes are used for an au-

tomatic speed reduction at any moments, then the brake light illuminates.

In case of failure of more than one brake light on the vehicle or on the con-

nected trailer, the ACC becomes unavailable.

The control automatically cancels the engagement of the brake supportive

assistance systems (e.g. ESC) or when the maximum permitted engine speed is

exceeded.

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

The ACC makes it possible to set a speed of 30-160 or 30-210 km/h (depend-

ing on equipment fitted) as well as the distance to preceding vehicles.
The ACC can detect a vehicle that is up to approx. 120 m ahead using the radar

sensor.

Status conditions of the ACC 

» Fig. 283

Regulation is inactive (in the colour display the digits of speed limits is

shown in grey).
Regulation active - no vehicle detected (in the colour display the digits of

the speed limits are highlighted).
Regulation deactivated - no speed stored.
Regulation active - vehicle detected (in the colour display the digits of the

speed limits are highlighted).

Note to reduce speed

If the ACC's deceleration is insufficient in relation to the vehicle in front, the

warning light 

 lights up in the instrument cluster and the display shows a

message to engage the brake pedal.

Regulation according to the vehicle in the adjacent lane

During regulation your vehicle may be regulated according to the vehicle in the

adjacent lane.
This could occur at speeds above about 80 km/h when your vehicle is moving

faster than the vehicle in the adjacent lane on the driver's side. The display

shows the detected vehicle is in the adjacent lane.

Note

Some ACC notifications in the display of the instrument cluster may be hidden

by notifications for other functions. An ACC notification automatically appears

for a brief moment when there is a change in status of the ACC.

Automatic stopping and starting

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

Vehicles with an automatic transmission can decelerate to a standstill and

start moving again using the ACC.

Decelerate to a standstill

If a vehicle ahead decelerates to a standstill, the ACC will also decelerate your

vehicle to a standstill.

Starting to drive again after a holding period

As soon as the vehicle ahead starts moving again after a holding period, your

vehicle will also move and the speed will continue to be regulated. Control is

automatically disconnected in case of longer holding periods.

Start control

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

Basic requirements for start of control

ACC is enabled.
On vehicles with manual transmission, the second gear or a higher gear is

selected and the current speed is greater than 30 km/h.
On vehicles with automatic transmission the selector lever is in the posi-

tion D / S or in the Tiptronic position and the current speed is higher than

2 km / h.

Start control

Press the button  

» Fig. 284

 on page 236 .

or: Set the lever into the sprung position  

» Fig. 284

 on page 236 .

The ACC adopts the current driving speed and performs the control, and the

warning light 

 illuminates in the instrument cluster.

If control is started by moving the lever to the position  and should the

speed be stored already, the ACC adopts this speed and executes control.

Note

If control is started at a speed of less than 30 km/h on vehicles with an auto-

matic transmission, the speed of 30 km/h is stored. The speed increases auto-

matically to 30 km/h or is regulated with respect to the speed of the vehicle

ahead.

Stop/resume control

Read and observe   on page 234 first.
