The optional Front Assist is a collision-alert safety system. Faced with an unavoidable collision, it applies the brakes to minimise the consequences. It also performs an emergency stop if a pedestrian dangerously attempts to cross the path of the car.
Blind Spot Detect helps the driver to change lanes safely by registering any vehicles in the blind spot. The optional feature has two radar sensors located in the lower part of the rear bumper monitor the area beside and up to 20 metres behind the ŠKODA OCTAVIA.
The optional Lane Assist recognises an unintended departure from the lane, providing a visual message, and initiates corrective steering. It is activated at speeds above 65 km/h provided that there are recognisable lane markings on the road surface and the turn signal has not been turned on.
Driver Alert reduces the risk of a fatigue-induced emergency. By monitoring driver behaviour, the system assesses the degree of driver fatigue and, if necessary, warns of the need for a rest and break in the journey.
