ŠKODA Safety

We at ŠKODA do everything we can to keep you safe on the road. Not only do our cars feature the most advanced equipment that should both actively prevent accidents and protect occupants in case of an emergency, but we also want to show you how you yourself can contribute to your own safety. Because for us, putting safety first means to care – about yourself, about your passengers, about others on the road. Have a safe drive!

How to drive safely

It‘s safe to care. With all the advanced technology within our reach, it’s easy to overlook the one thing that makes every drive truly safe. And that is you. The driver. 

Since driver is the most important safety feature, it’s crucial to know the basic and not so basic principles of safe driving. That also includes understanding how to make the best use of safety assistant systems. We’ll show you. Using an example of the two most common driving situations – driving in dense city traffic versus long distance driving.

Stay on the Safe Side

Long before cars, ŠKODA was all about bikes. Now we take care of cyclists and drivers alike. Together, we share the same roads and it is only by paying attention to traffic education that we can better cooperate and prevent dangerous situations.

5 STARS FOR OUR RANGE

The fruits of our labours are reflected in the maximum 5-star ratings awarded to most of our models in Euro NCAP crash tests.

DRIVING STABILITY SYSTEMS

EMERGENCY CALL/ECALL

A very important safety feature is the Emergency Call/eCall, which is part of ŠKODA Connect and is free of charge for the car’s entire lifetime. In the event of accident, a connection to the emergency centre is automatically established. Data such as the location, direction, number of passengers and severity of the accident is forwarded. Professional assistance can then reach the site as quickly as possible.

AIRBAGS

The main purpose of airbags, in tandem with the seat belts, is to prevent the occupants’ bodies from coming into contact with any rigid parts of the car, or at least to minimise the consequences of any such contact.

ALL-WHEEL DRIVE

Selected ŠKODA models are available with state-of-the-art all-wheel drive, guaranteeing optimal driving dynamics and the highest level of active safety in all circumstances, including in the wet and snow. Discover which models offer AWD and more about how it works.

CHILD PROTECTION

Every parent will insist that the top priority is to protect the smallest passengers whom standard safety belts cannot help. We agree, so in all ŠKODAs you'll find useful safety features effectively protecting all small travellers.

SAFETY ACCESSORIES

The range of ŠKODA Genuine Accessories includes mandatory safety equipment and items that will be a godsend if the unexpected happens. The complete range of accessories can be found in our e-shop.
