For each of our brake pads and discs, we have carefully selected the brake lining materials, singled out the finest manufacturing technology, and run the toughest of tests. We are well aware of the fact that it is not just vehicle damage at stake here, but also – and more importantly – human lives.
Shock absorbers have a significant effect on handling, the braking distance, tyre wear, and stress on the body and chassis components. Their design, high quality and guarantee of optimal performance contribute considerably to your car’s excellent handling, come rain or shine. They also help the vehicle to hug the road, especially around bends, which adds to the ease and comfort of the driver and passengers alike.
The quality and design of spark plugs determines the performance of the engine and its reliability. A correctly set spark plug positively influences the combustion process of a petrol engine and thereby the volume of waste products in emissions. A spark plug also has an effect on the starting of the engine, its performance and service life and also its consumption of fuel and the composition of exhaust gases.
ŠKODA Genuine Filters are the best solution not only because they let in the least amount of debris into the engine, but also because they have the highest dust holding capacity or, to put it simply they take much longer to clog up. They also make the most sense financially in terms of overall costs, because they surpass generic filters in quality and do not need to be replaced as often.
Most allergens are minute protein compounds that are found, for example, both inside pollen grains and on their surfaces. When pollen grains burst, the allergenic substances inside them are released and able to provoke the familiar reactions in allergy sufferers. The filter becomes a “prison” for allergens. This is made possible by the active ingredients contained in the bioactive Allergen filter.
All ŠKODA Genuine Start-Stop batteries have outstanding cold-start capabilities, long service lives, very low self-discharge rates, high cycle stability and enhanced charging capacities. The cycle life of ŠKODA AGM battery (one cycle comprises one charge and one discharge) is three times as high as a normal starter battery. Thanks to the enhanced charging capacity, the energy is also recuperated during a trip faster.
Car windscreens are made up of two glass panes and a polyvinylbutyral interlayer (PVB foil). This technique forms what is known as layered glass that, at the same time, is safety glass, i.e. substantially reduces the risk of injuries caused by fragments in the event of an accident. In other words, the system provides protection against injury, vandalism, robbery, etc.
Aero-wipers are an advanced technical solution with significant functional benefits: perfect wiping performance throughout the length of the wiper enabled by an equal distribution of strength, precision wiping even at high speeds thanks to the aerodynamic optimisation of the wipers, minimum aerodynamic noise thanks to smaller bypass areas, improved resistance to freezing ice thanks to removal of levers and joints, etc.
Bonnet must satisfy a number of contradictory requirements. The bonnets of current ŠKODA models are made of high-grade steel sheet metal with the corresponding thickness and surface quality. The most important demands placed on a bonnet include the design aspects, safety in frontal impact or an eventual pedestrian impact, the strength of the bonnet, its aerodynamic characteristics, and its lifetime.
The visibility of a vehicle plays a central role in road traffic safety. Innovative lighting systems guarantee optimum "see and be seen" for the ŠKODA models.
