ŠKODA KAROQ

Enjoy your drive to the full. ŠKODA KAROQ will support you with numerous safety assistants, Simply Clever features and connectivity services. Watch the videos how it works.

SIDE ASSIST

Thanks to two radar systems at the rear of the car, the Side Assist detects vehicles approaching from behind or that are in the car’s blind spot. The driver is informed of this by an LED signal on the inner edge of the wing mirror housings. While the familiar Blind Spot Detect has a range of up to 20 m, Side Assist can detect vehicles from a distance of up to 70 m away and thus also effectively warns the driver of hazardous situations on motorways and dual carriageways.

LANE ASSIST

Lane Assist is a system designed to keep the vehicle in its lane and, if necessary, alert the driver of an unwanted lane change. The camera monitors the horizontal road marking, and the assistant intervenes in the steering to keep the vehicle inside its lane. The “adaptive lane guidance” mode is a smart function designed to intervene in the steering in order to keep the vehicle in the centre of its lane.

DRIVER ALERT

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.

AUTO LIGHT ASSIST

Auto Light Assist automatically turns the high beam on and off depending on the current traffic situation. It detects external light sources with a camera installed at the foot of the rear-view mirror. It monitors light intensity, which it uses to determine whether high beam may be used.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC)

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.

FRONT ASSIST

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.

PARK DISTANCE CONTROL AND MANOEUVRE ASSIST

Park Distance Control consists of sensors integrated in the rear bumper, which check the car’s distance from any obstacles. Alerts take the form of sound signals or visual signals on the infotainment display. There are three ultrasound sensors in the back bumper, which monitor the area around the vehicle.

KESSY

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.

VIRTUAL PEDAL

Fitted with electric drive units, the tailgate can be easily opened and closed in several ways, including the virtual pedal. The touch-free tailgate opening system features a motion sensor to monitor the area under the rear bumper. Upon detecting a “kick”, i.e. a foot moving forward and then backward (longitudinal direction) and identifying an authorised key in the KESSY zone behind the vehicle, the system opens the tailgate.

TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION

The Travel Assist system uses the camera in the rear-view mirror to scan the traffic signs on the current stretch of road and notify the driver of traffic signs. The system is able to identify signs on both the left and right sides, as well as above the road. Moreover, it is able to identify variable traffic signing, too (electronic information boards).

SMARTLINK+

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™.

BREAKDOWN CALL

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.

ONLINE AUXILIARY HEATER

Control your car’s auxiliary heating from anywhere in the world via the ŠKODA Connect App for your smartphone. When you’ve been on a trip and you’re about to set off home, for example, activate your heater beforehand to warm up the car. Besides activation itself, you can also set a departure time and choose between heating and ventilation.

SERVICE SCHEDULING

With Service Scheduling, you no longer have to fret about when to book another service. Your ŠKODA service partner and your car will take care of this. The vehicle reports any required servicing to the backend server. The details are sent to your preferred service partner, who contacts you proactively to schedule an appointment.

PETROL STATIONS

Use Petrol Stations to keep up to speed on the best fuel prices around. Browse a list of petrol stations, their location, and current prices any time you want in your infotainment system. Enter them in the navigation or simply view garages selling your fuel type.

WEATHER

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.

LOCK & UNLOCK

Do you need to lock or unlock your ŠKODA, but you are too far away from it? This feature can significantly ease life in many situations, for example when you forget to lock the car or want to let somebody else inside. It allows you to lock or unlock your vehicle through the ŠKODA Connect Portal or ŠKODA Connect App. It works without any distance limitation.

ONLINE TRAFFIC INFORMATION

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.

PARKING POSITION AND HONK & FLASH

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.
