RAPID TECHNICAL SPECS
The ŠKODA RAPID delivers safety without compromise. This family compact was awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test in 2012 for its exemplary safety features. Besides the safety systems outlined above, the following features are available as a standard or option in the RAPID:
› EDL boosts acceleration or uphill driving in response to low traction under one of the driven wheels.
› ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces.
› MKB activates the braking system after a collision to prevent further damage.
› MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels, which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface.
› By increasing the braking pressure, the braking assistant helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can significantly reduce the braking distance required.
› The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
› Electronic Tyre Pressure Monitoring keeps the driver informed of tyre pressure at all times.
› The optional Hill-Hold Control assistant helps drivers start uphill safely. The system activates itself on gradients of five per cent or more and ensures easy and safe uphill starting without the use of the hand brake. The system keeps the car from rolling backwards or stalling.
