Rear traffic alert and wizard for “Blind spot”Monitoring

Introduction

Fig. 275 

Installation location of the radar

sensors

The Rear Traffic Alert and Wizard for “blind spot” monitoring works based on

the information from the radar sensors in the rear bumper 

» Fig. 275

. The radar

sensors are not visible from the outside.

Rear Traffic Alert

The Rear Traffic Alert (hereinafter referred to as system) warns when leaving a

parking space from a transverse parking space about any approaching vehi-

cles.
If necessary, the system tries to avoid a collision with automatic braking, or at

least to mitigate the consequences.

Wizard for “blind spot”monitoring

The wizard for“blind spot monitoring” (hereafter referred to as system) draws

attention to vehicles travelling in the same direction in the next lane in the so-

called blind spots.
The “blind spot” is an area that is not easily visible in a rear-view mirror or even

directly from the vehicle.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be

observed 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

WARNING

In the case of a collision or damage to the rear of the vehicle, the function

of the systems may be affected - risk of accident! Have the vehicle

checked by a specialist garage.

Do not cover the sensor area - the function of the systems could be limi-

ted.

Remove snow, ice and such obstacles from the sensor environment im-

mediately.

WARNING

The wizard for “blind spot”monitoring is limited by physical and system-re-

lated limits. Therefore, in the following situations the system can be de-

layed in drawing attention (or not at all) to a vehicle in the next land.

When a vehicle is approaching at a very high speed.

When passing through a very sharp curve or a roundabout.

CAUTION

If a trailer or other accessory is to be connected to the trailer socket, then

the two systems are not available.

In adverse weather conditions (heavy rain, water vapour, very low or high

temperatures, etc.), the system function may be limited - “failure to recognise

a vehicle”.

Accessories additionally installed on the vehicle rear, such as bicycle carriers,

can impair the system function.

Rear Traffic Alert- Operation

Fig. 276  Infotainment screen: warning indicator / driving situation

Read and observe   and   on page 223 first.

With the ignition switched on, the area next to and behind the vehicle is moni-

tored by the radar sensors of the system. If an approaching vehicle is detected

from the rear of the vehicle 

» Fig. 276

, the system warns of this fact.

Warning - vehicles with parking aid

You will hear a continuous tone and one of the following warning levels ap-

pears on the Infotainment screen 

» Fig. 276

.

An oncoming vehicle is detected. Do not continue driving backwards and

check around the vehicle.
A vehicle in the collision region is detected. Do not continue driving back-

wards 

.

Warning - vehicles without parking sensors

An acoustic signal is sounded and information for the driver to observe the

traffic behind is shown in the instrument cluster.

Automatic emergency braking

If the driver does not react to the warning and the system detects an impend-

ing collision, then this can trigger an automatic braking at a speed up to 10

km/h. A corresponding message is shown in the information cluster display.

A

B

Wizard for “Blind Spot”Monitoring - Operation

Read and observe   and   on page 223 first.

At a speed over 15 km/h, the area alongside and behind the vehicle is moni-

tored by the system. At the same time, the distance and the difference in

speed between your vehicle and the other vehicles in the monitored area can

be measured.
When driving, the sensors monitor an area to the left and right to the extent of

a normal lane width.
If a vehicle is detected in the “blind spot” area, the system indicates this vehi-

cle by the indicator light 

 in the exterior mirror.

System constraint

The system is unable to recognise the specific lane width by means of sensors.

Therefore this can e.g. in the following cases respond to a vehicle in a further

lane.

When driving on a road with narrow lanes or on the lane edge.

Driving around a bend.

The system may also respond to objects on the roadside such as crash barri-

ers, noise barriers or similar objects.

Your vehicle 

C

 is overtaking vehicle 

D

 at a speed of max. 10 km high-

er

» Fig. 278

. If the speed during the overtaking is even higher, then there is

no warning by the warning light.

The warning display is always in the exterior mirror on the side of the vehicle

where a vehicle is detected in the “blind spot”.
The greater the speed difference between the two vehicles, the earlier the

warning (by means of the warning light) regarding the vehicle that is overtak-

ing you takes place.

Two warning levels

 light up - a vehicle has been detected in the “blind spot”.

 flash - a vehicle has been detected in the “blind spot” and the turn signal is

switched on.

An advanced warning for vehicles with Lane Assist

 flash also if the steering wheel is turned in the direction of the vehicle in

the “blind spot” . Therefore the Lane Assist 

» page 247

 must be enabled and

the boundary line between the vehicles detected.
If in this case your vehicle indicates crossing the boundary line, with a short vi-

bration of the steering wheel.

Note

The brightness of the indicator light 

 is dependent on the setting of the vehi-

cle lighting. With the low or high beam on the brightness of the light will be

lower.

Park Assist

Introduction

Park Assist (following referred to system) helps drivers park in suitable parallel

and perpendicular parking places or also to manoeuvre out of parallel parking

spaces.
The system takes over the steering movements only when parking or leaving a

parking space. The driver operates the brake, accelerator or clutch pedal and

the shift / selector lever.
The state in which the steering wheel is operated by the system, is referred to

as parking operation.
The Park Assist is an extension of the parking aid 

» page 219

 and operates on

the basis of data collected by the ultrasonic sensors.
For this reason, the chapter on the parking aid is to be read carefully and

the safety notes are to be observed.

Assist systems

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be

observed 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

During the parking process, the system automatically performs rapid

steering movements. While it is doing so, do not place your hands between

the steering wheel – risk of injury!

During a parking manoeuvre on loose or slippery surfaces (gravel, snow,

ice, etc.) you may stray from the calculated road. It is therefore recommen-

ded that you do not use the system in such situations.

CAUTION

The correct evaluation of the parking space and the parking procedure de-

pends on the circumference of the wheels on the vehicle.

The system only works correctly if the vehicle is fitted with the wheel size

approved by ŠKODA AUTO.

Do not use the system if snow chains or an emergency wheel are fitted.

If wheels other than those approved by ŠKODA AUTO are fitted, the result-

ing position of the vehicle in the parking space can differ slightly. This can be

avoided by readjusting the system at a specialist garage.

CAUTION

If other vehicles are parked behind or on the curb, the system can drive your

vehicle over the kerb or up to the kerb - there is a risk of damage to the

wheels. Intervene in time if necessary.

Note

We recommend performing the parking at a safe speed to about 5 km/h.

The parking procedure can be stopped at any time by pressing the 

» Fig. 286

 on page 230 button or by a steering intervention.

ter display.

Automatic brake assist

Read and observe   and   on page 230 first.

Automatic brake assist when speeding

If a velocity of 7 km / h is exceeded during the parking manoeuvre for the first

time, the speed will be automatically reduced by the system to less than 7 km /

h. This prevents the parking manoeuvre from aborting.

Automatic emergency braking

If the system detects a risk of collision during parking, automatic emergency

braking takes place to prevent a collision.
The parking is terminated by the emergency braking.

CAUTION

The automatic emergency braking is not triggered by the system when the

parking process stops due to the speed of 7 km / hr being exceeded!

Malfunctions

Read and observe   and   on page 230 first.

If the system is not available, an appropriate message appears in the display of

the instrument cluster.

System unavailable

If the system is not available because the vehicle has a fault, a message ap-

pears concerning the unavailability. Seek help from a specialist garage.

System fault

In the case of a system fault, an error message appears. Seek help from a spe-

cialist garage.

Cruise Control System

Introduction

The Cruise Control System (CCS) maintains a set speed without you having to

actuate the accelerator pedal. The state where the CCS maintains the speed is

referred to hereinafter as the control.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be

observed 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

After pressing the clutch pedal, no interrupted control occurs! For exam-

ple, if a different gear is engaged and the clutch pedal is released, control is

continued.

Operation

Fig. 291  Instrument cluster display: Examples of status displays the

CCS

Read and observe   on page 234 first.

CCS status displays 

» Fig. 291

Speed is set, control is inactive (in the colour display the digits of speed

limits is shown in grey).
Control active (in the colour display the digits of the speed limits are high-

lighted).
No speed set.
System fault - seek assistance from a specialist garage immediately.

Basic requirements for start of control

The CCS is activated.
On vehicles with a manual transmission, the second gear or higher is en-

gaged.
On vehicles with an automatic transmission, the selector lever is in the

D/S position or in the Tiptronic position.
The current speed is greater than approx. 20 km/h.

This is only possible within the range which is permitted by the power output

and braking power of the engine.

WARNING

If the engine power and engine braking effect is insufficient in order to

maintain the set speed, the acceleration and brake pedals must be taken

over!

Driving

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the start of the regulation, the CCS regulates the vehicle to the current

speed and the warning light 

 illuminates in the instrument cluster.

The automatic control interruption occurs if any of the following conditions

are met.

The brake pedal is operated.

When one of the brake assist systems (e.g. ESC) intervenes.

Through an airbag deployment.

WARNING

Always deactivate the cruise control system after use to prevent the sys-

tem being switched on unintentionally.

The control does not resume if the set speed for the existing traffic con-

ditions is too high.

Note

During control, speed can be increased by pressing the accelerator pedal. Re-

leasing the accelerator pedal will cause the speed to drop again to the set

speed.

By pressing the button

 during the regulation this is cancelled

and the Speed Limiter is activated.

Speed limiter

Introduction

The Speed Limiter limits the maximum driving speed to the set speed limit.
The speed limit can only be exceeded by depressing the accelerator pedal fully.
The condition in which the Speed Limiter prevents a potential set speed limit

excess is referred to as Regulation.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be

observed 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

System fault - seek assistance from a specialist garage immediately.

Basic requirements for start of control

The Speed Limiter is activated.
The current speed is greater than approx. 30 km/h.

After starting the system, the current speed is set as the speed limit, the warn-

ing light 

 lights up in the instrument cluster.

Exceeding the speed limit during the regulation

If, during the control, it is necessary to exceed the speed limit (e.g. to over-

take), the accelerator pedal must be pressed fully.
When exceeding the speed limit (e.g. driving down a hill), an acoustic signal

sounds and the warning light 

 flashes in the instrument cluster.

The regulation is resumed once the speed has fallen below the set limit.
