2019 Skoda Scala – Driver assistance systems. Škoda has completely redefined its compact car segment with the Scala. As the name suggests the brand is aiming high with the new Škoda Scala: the word ‘Scala’ comes from Latin and means ‘stairs’, ‘ladder’ or ‘scale’. By incorporating new technology, an emotive design, a high degree of functionality and state-of-the-art connectivity, the new Škoda Scala is taking more than just one development step at a time – and is also setting new benchmarks in the compact segment. The Scala is available with a selection of five engine variants featuring power outputs from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS), a high level of active and passive safety, as well as full LED headlights and tail lights. Added to this is plenty of space for luggage and passengers as well as a wealth of Simply Clever features – making it a true Škoda.

New assistance systems and high level of passive safety

By offering a high-strength steel body, many passive safety features and a wealth of assistance systems previously only available in higher segments, Škoda has made the new Škoda Scala one of the safest vehicles in the compact car segment. It is the first Škoda model range to always be equipped with Lane Assist and Front Assist, and the first model in the segment to boast LED technology as standard for the headlights and tail lights – and with the option of full LED versions.

Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform builds the foundation for making the Scala one of the safest cars in the compact car segment, as it enables the latest assistance systems to be used. At the same time, a robust body gives the Scala a high degree of torsional stiffness and great stability. Škoda uses hot-formed steels for this, almost 70 per cent of which are high-strength or hardened. These are used in the A- and B-pillars, the bulkhead and the tunnel, for example.

Lane Assist and Front Assist with City Emergency Brake as standard

For the Scala, Škoda is equipping an entire model range with Lane Assist and Front Assist including City Emergency Brake as standard for the first time. Using a camera, Lane Assist recognises lane markings and helps the driver to keep the car in its lane. Front Assist, which includes the City Emergency Brake and Predictive Pedestrian Protection functions, monitors the area in front of the car while driving in the city, thereby helping to prevent accidents or minimise their consequences.

Side Assist warns of cars approaching from behind up to 70 m away

Thanks to two radar systems at the rear of the car, the optional 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. The warning is considerably more noticeable for the driver there than in the mirror’s glass; the display’s brightness is adjustable. 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. The system works while accelerating at speeds of 15 km/h or more and down to a speed of 10 km/h while braking. It also improves the reaction time of the proactive occupant protection system Crew Protect Assist. Rear Traffic Alert is an integral part of Side Assist. It warns the driver about objects moving behind the vehicle when reversing at speeds of up to 15 km/h – as well as at its sides at a speed of up to 70 km/h. Should the driver not respond to an initial visual signal, an acoustic warning is emitted, followed by an automatic emergency stop.
