Fig. 286  Lane changes of other vehicles / stationary vehicles

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

The following (and similar) situations require special attention and possibly the

intervention of the driver (braking, accelerating etc.).

When cornering

When driving into or driving out of long corners, it could be that a vehicle is

travelling in the adjacent lane and is scanned by the radar 

» Fig. 285

 - . The

host vehicle is then controlled according to this vehicle.

Narrow vehicles or vehicles travelling side by side

A narrow or offset vehicle driving can only be recognized by the ACC if this is

located in the scanning range of the radar 

» Fig. 285

 - .

Other vehicles changing lanes

Vehicles that change onto the lane with a small distance 

» Fig. 286

 -  may not

be detected by ACC in good time.

Stationary vehicles

The ACC does not detect stationary objects! When a vehicle detected by the

ACC turns or sheers off and there is a stationary vehicle in front of this vehicle,

» Fig. 286

 - the ACC does not respond to the stationary vehicle.

Vehicles with special load or special body parts

Other vehicles with a load or with body parts protruding from the sides, back

or top of the vehicle contour may not be detected by the ACC.

Overtaking and towing

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

When overtaking

When your vehicle is being controlled at a speed that is lower than the set

speed and the turn signal is operated, ACC assesses this situation as meaning

that the driver wishes to overtake. The ACC automatically accelerates the ve-

hicle, thereby reducing the proximity to a vehicle ahead.
If your vehicle changes to the overtaking lane and no vehicle is detected

ahead, ACC accelerates until the set speed is reached and then keeps it con-

stant.
Acceleration can be cancelled at any time by touch on the brake pedal or

pressing the button  on the lever 

» Fig. 284

 on page 236.

Towing a trailer

When towing, or if another accessory is connected to the trailer socket, ACC

control is set with a lower rate. The manner of driving should therefore be

adapted to this limitation.

Malfunctions

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

If ACC is not available, the warning light  appears in the display of the instru-

ment cluster and an appropriate message is shown.

Sensor covered / dirty

If the sensor cover or the sensor is dirty or covered, a message appears on the

instrument cluster display stating there is no sensor view. Clean the sensor

cover or remove the obstacles 

» Fig. 251

 on page 210.

If there is no sensor view in the winter, the snow on the sensor under the cov-

er could be the reason. The ACC is functional again after the snow melts away

from the sensor.

ACC not available

If the ACC is unavailable, a message concerning the unavailability appears.

Stop the vehicle, switch off the engine and then start it again. If ACC continues

to be unavailable, seek the assistance of a specialist garage.

Front Assist

Introduction

The Front Assist (hereinafter referred to as the system) warns you of the dan-

ger of a collision with a vehicle or another obstacle in front of the vehicle, and

tries to avoid a collision or mitigate its consequences by automatically applying

the brakes where necessary.
The area in front of the vehicle is monitored by a radar sensor

» page 210

.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

The system does not respond vehicles that are crossing or oncoming.

CAUTION

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

cally connected trailer, the system becomes unavailable.

Emergency braking at low speed

In the event of a risk of collision in a vehicle speed range of approximately

5 km/h to 30 km/h, the warning light appears on the display  

» Fig. 288

 and

the system initiates automatic braking.

Advance warning

If the system detects a risk of collision, the warning light appears on the dis-

play  

» Fig. 288

 and an audible signal is emitted.

The pre-warning display can occur in the following situations.

If there is a risk of collision with a moving obstacle in a speed range of ap-

proximately 30 km/h to 210 km/h.

If there is a risk of collision with a stationary obstacle in a speed range of ap-

proximately 30 km/h to 80 km/h.

When the advance warning is issued, the brake pedal must be pressed or

the moving obstacle avoided!

Immediate warning and automatic braking - a moving obstacle

If the driver does not react to the advance warning when in danger of a colli-

sion with a moving obstacle, the system briefly applies the brake automatically

via an active brake intervention to draw attention to the potential danger of a

collision again.
If the driver does not respond to acute warning, the system begins to auto-

matically brake the vehicle.

Automatic braking - a stationary obstacle

If the driver does not respond to the advance warning of the risk of a collision

with a stationary obstacle in a speed range of approximately 30 km/h to 60

km/h, the system initiates automatic braking.

Information on automatic braking

If automatic brake intervention is triggered by the system, the pressure in the

brake system increases and the brake pedal cannot be operated with the nor-

mal pedal stroke.
The automatic braking interventions can be cancelled by pressing the acceler-

ator pedal or by means of a steering intervention.

Brake assist

If the driver brakes inadequate with an impending collision, the system auto-

matically increases braking force.
The braking assistance only occurs as long as the brake pedal is being firmly

pressed down.

Pedestrian recognition

Read and observe   and   on page 239 first.

The pedestrian recognition can help to prevent accidents with crossing pedes-

trians or to mitigate the consequences of an accident.
The system warns of an imminent collision, prepares the vehicle for an emer-

gency braking, supports during braking or performs an automatic braking.

Emergency braking at low speed

If there is a risk of collision in a vehicle speed range of about 5 km/h to 30

km/h, the system triggers an automatic braking.

Proactive passenger 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

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

Operation

Read and observe   on page 243 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.

Deactivation of TCS 

» page 211

.

By selecting the driving mode Sport 

» page 243

.

By selecting the driving mode Offroad 

» page 213

.

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.

Spurhalteassistent (Lane Assist)

Introduction

Fig. 291 

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. 291

.

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 210,

   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.

244

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.

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

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

Traffic sign recognition

Introduction

The traffic sign recognition (following known as system) shows certain traffic

signs (e.g. speed limits) on the display of the instrument cluster and if necessa-

ry warns against excessive speeds.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

Vertical traffic signs must always take precedence over the traffic signs

shown in the display. The driver is always responsible for correctly assess-

ing the traffic situation.

The speed indications in the traffic signs shown refer to the speed units

that are common in the country. For example, the display  may relate to

km/h or mph depending on the country in question.

System limitation

The system displays a message about system limitation in the following cases.

The map documents are not up to date.

The vehicle is located in an area for which no map documents are present.

Fatigue detection system

The fatigue detection system (hereinafter simply the system) advises the driv-

er to take a break from driving when driver fatigue can be detected based on

the driver's steering behaviour.
The system evaluates the steering behaviour at speeds of 60-200 km/h.
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 menu 



/  →  → Driver assis-

tance menu.

Pause recommendation

The icon appears and the following message for a few seconds in the display

of the instrument cluster  and a message about detected fatigue. An audible

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

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.

Note

In some situations, the system can evaluate the steering behaviour incorrect-

ly and therefore falsely display a break recommendation.

The system is designed primarily for use on motorways.

Tyre pressure monitoring

Introduction

The tyre pressure monitoring function (following known as 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 sounds 

» page 43

.

The system can only function properly if the tyres have the prescribed inflation

pressure and these pressure values are stored in the system.
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.

The warning light 

 in the instrument cluster lights up.

WARNING

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

systems 

» page 210,

   in section Introduction.

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

bility. Tyre pressure should be checked regularly 

» page 279

.

WARNING (Continued)

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 279

. If the wrong pressure valuesare stored, the

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

CAUTION

To ensure proper system function, the tyre pressure values must be stored ev-

ery 10,000 km or 1x a year.

Towing device and trailer

Hitch

Introduction

The maximum trailer load is dependent on the engine and the vehicle equip-

ment. The valid specification for your vehicle can be found in the technical ve-

hicle documentation, (e.g. vehicle approval documentation, the COC docu-

ment) or at a ŠKODA partner.
Other data (e.g. shown on the nameplate of the hitch) on provides information

about the test values of the device .

WARNING

Before each time you make a journey when using the ball rod, check that

it is seated correctly and is secured in the mounting recess.

When the knee-joint bar is not used and properly secured in the receiving

shaft, it is damaged or incomplete, this must not be used - there is a risk of

an accident.

Do not perform any modifications or changes to the towing device.

Keep the mounting recess of the towing device clean at all times. Such

dirt prevents the ball rod from being attached securely!

Note

If the towing device is removed completely, it must be replaced with the origi-

nal reinforcement of the rear bumper which is part of the mount for the tow-

ing eye.
