collision!

CAUTION

It is possible that the roll-up luggage compartment cover rolls more slowly

during winter weather conditions. This is not a defect.

Note

If you want to stow the roll-up luggage compartment cover and the multifunc-

tion pocket at the same time, then it is necessary that the rear part of the roll-

up luggage compartment covers the multifunction pocket.

Transportation on the roof rack

Fig. 166  Attachment points

Depending on the equipment, the roof bars can be attached at the attachment

points 

» Fig. 166

 or to the roof rail.

The attachment points 

A

 and 

B

 are located on both sides of the vehicle

» Fig. 166

.

Mounting and dismounting of the roof bars is carried out according to the in-

structions provided.

Roof load

The maximum permitted weight of the load incl. the carrier is 100 kg.

WARNING

For road safety when transporting cargo on the roof rack, observe the fol-

lowing instructions.

Always distribute the load on the roof rack evenly and secure properly us-

ing suitable lashing straps or tensioning straps.

When transporting heavy objects or objects which take up a large area on

the roof rack system, the handling of the car may change as a result of the

displacement of the centre of gravity. The style of driving and speed must

therefore be adapted to the current circumstances.

The permissible roof load, permissible axle loads and permissible total ve-

hicle weight must not be exceeded under any circumstances – risk of acci-

dent!

CAUTION

Make sure that the sliding / tilting roof or the boot lid does not collide with

the roof load when opened.

Ensure the roof aerial is not impaired by the load being transported.

Note

We recommend that you use a roof rack from ŠKODA Original Accessories.

Heating and ventilation

Heating, manual air conditioning system, Climatronic

Introduction

The heating heats and ventilates the vehicle interior. The air conditioning sys-

tem also cools and dehumidifies the vehicle interior.
The heating effect is dependent upon the coolant temperature, thus full heat

output only occurs when the engine has reached its operating temperature.
The cooling system works under the following conditions.

The cooling system is switched on.
The engine is running.
The outside temperature is below 2 ° C.
The blower is switched on.

Fogging is prevented when the cooling system is switched on.
It is possible to boost the effectiveness of the cooling system by briefly acti-

vating the air recirculation system 

» page 120

.

Health protection

To reduce health risks (e.g. common colds), the following instructions for the

use of the cooling system are to be observed.

The difference between the indoor temperature and the outdoor air temper-

ature should not be greater than about 5 ° C.

The cooling system should be turned off about 10 minutes before the end of

the journey.

Once a year, the air conditioning should be disinfected by a specialist garage.

WARNING

The blower should always be on to prevent the windows from misting.

Otherwise there could be an accident.

Under certain circumstances, air at a temperature of about 5 °C can flow

out of the vents when the cooling system is switched on.

Note

The air inlet in front of the windscreen must be free of e.g. ice, snow or

leaves to ensure that the heating and cooling system operates properly.

After switching on the cooling Condensation from the evaporator of the air

conditioning may drip down and form a puddle below the vehicle. This is not a

leak!

If the coolant temperature is too high, the cooling system is switched off to

ensure that the engine cools down.

Automatic switch-on/switch-off of the air recirculation function can be set in

the Infotainment screen, by pressing the  button on the Climatronic and by

then pressing the function surface  → Automatic air recirculation.
A shut-off of the air recirculation function takes place automatically by press-

ing the button, possibly depending on the moisture conditions in the vehi-

cle interior.

WARNING

The air recirculation cannot be switched on for a longer period of time be-

cause there is no supply of fresh air from the outside. “Stale air” may result

in fatigue in the driver and occupants, reduce attention levels and also

cause the windows to mist up. As soon as the windows mist up, turn the air

recirculation mode off immediately - there is a risk of accident!

CAUTION

We recommend not smoking in the vehicle when the recirculating air opera-

tion is switched on. The smoke sucked from inside the vehicle is deposited on

the evaporator of the air conditioner. This produces a permanent odour when

the air conditioning system is operating which can only be eliminated through

considerable effort and expense (replacement of compressor).

Climatronic - Air Care function

Fig. 171 

Example display of the Air Care

function

Read and observe   on page 117 first.

The Air CareFunction reduces pollutant penetration contained in the outside

air into the vehicle.
When the function is activated, the air in the vehicle is circulated and cleaned

at the same time. The cleaning process is displayed by the zones displayed in

the Infotainment screen.

To switch on/off, press the  button on the Climatronic control panel, and

then tap on the function surface   → Active on the Infotainment

screen

.

To ensure correct Air Care functioning, all doors and windows including the

panoramic sliding/tilting roof must be closed.
When opening a door or a window, the corresponding message is displayed in

the Infotainment screen.

Air outlet vents

Auxiliary heating (auxiliary heating and ventilation)

Introduction

The auxiliary heating heats the vehicle interior as well as the engine. For heat-

ing, fuel is consumed from the fuel tank.
The auxiliary ventilation enables fresh air to flow into the vehicle interior with

the engine switched off, whereby the interior temperature is effectively de-

creased (e.g. with the vehicle parked in the sun).
The auxiliary heating (auxiliary heating and ventilation) (referred to just as auxil-

iary heating in the following) ensures the heating / ventilation depending on

the setting of the air conditioning and the air outlet vents before switching off

the ignition.

WARNING

The auxiliary heating must never be operated in closed rooms (e.g. garag-

es) – risk of poisoning!

The auxiliary heating must not be allowed to run during refuelling – risk of

fire.

The exhaust pipe of the auxiliary heating is located on the underside of

the vehicle. If you want to use the auxiliary heating, do not park the car in

places where the exhaust fumes can come into contact with flammable

materials such as dry grass, undergrowth, leaves, spilled fuel etc. - risk of

fire.

CAUTION

The air inlet in front of the windscreen must be free (e.g. of ice, snow or

leaves) to ensure that the auxiliary heating operates properly.

Note

The auxiliary heating switches the blower on, if it has achieved a coolant tem-

perature of approx. 50 °C.

In the engine compartment, water vapour may form during the operation of

the heater.
