Enjoy your drive to the full. ŠKODA FABIA will support you with numerous safety assistants, Simply Clever features and connectivity services. Watch the videos how it works.
Driver Alert detects signs of fatigue in the driver and prompts the driver to take a break. This system monitors the driver’s behaviour, evaluates the degree of their tiredness and, if necessary, recommends the driver to stop and have a rest, thus reducing the risk of dangerous situations that might result from the driver’s fatigue.
A system designed to monitor the distance from the vehicle ahead, including automatic slowing down and braking, and to warn the driver of the danger of collision or, if a collision is inevitable, minimise its consequences by braking. It also detects if a pedestrian or cyclist dangerously attempts to cross the path of the car, using a sophisticated signal evaluation algorithm.
The radar cruise control keeps the vehicle at a chosen distance from the car in front, mostly accelerating and braking automatically. The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) automatically keeps a sufficient distance from vehicles moving ahead (max. 160 km/h or 210 km/h), dynamically, depending on the movement of the vehicles ahead or on a driver-defined safety distance. Besides the speed, the driver can also progressively configure the distance as well as the dynamics of the control on the operating lever of the steering wheel.
KESSY (Keyless-Entry-Start-and-Exit-System) allows drivers to use the car without having to pull the car keys out of their pocket. The car can be unlocked after mutual identification between the KESSY starter module and the transmitter in the car key, which has a range of about 1.5 metres. After grasping the right or left front door handle, which has a touch sensor on its outer side, the car unlocks.
The new SmartLink+ integrates the well-known interfaces Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink™ into one combined platform. The phone needs to be connected to the car systems with a cable, using one of two front USB slots (not simultaneously) – this applies to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink™.
Maximum ease and convenience are our watchwords even if your car breaks down. Pressing a button on the roof module connects you to a Roadside Assistance Call Centre. The car also automatically sends data about its position and condition to the call centre so that you can quickly resolve the issue with the operator or have your car towed.
Don’t panic about where you left your car in a large car park or unknown city. Parking Position consigns those worries to the past. The vehicle transmits its position data once after every trip. After retrieving the data via smartphone or smartwatch, you can find your parked vehicle using its GPS position.
You’ll never be wrong-footed by the weather again. The infotainment screen displays the latest weather at your destination, in your current location or in any other place. Besides the current forecast, including the chances of rain, there is also a 1- or 3-day forecast, plus Meteoradar to track precipitation on the map.
Always reach your destination on time and avoid all obstructions along the way by receiving the latest traffic news on accidents, tailbacks and roadworks in your infotainment system, so you can respond instantly. The navigation also factors in this data and dynamically finds the best route.
