  • Safety first: Škoda unveils class-leading technology in new Octavia




    • Fourth-generation Octavia features range of brand-new advanced safety technologies
    • Turn Assist, Exit Warning and Collision Avoidance Assist all make debut
    • New Octavia is first in class to launch innovative Turn Assist technology
    • Safety features designed to protect drivers, fellow motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
    • SE First Edition trim starts from Ł22,390 OTR


    ŠKODA has revealed a raft of safety features which are all set to make their debut for the brand in the fourth-generation Octavia, when it is released in UK showrooms this summer.


    The new technologies won’t just ensure safety for the driver of the vehicle but also other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.

    Turn Assist will be introduced for the first time in any ŠKODA and the Octavia is the first vehicle in its class to launch the innovative safety technology. Using the Octavia’s on-board cameras, the system will be able to monitor oncoming traffic when turning right at a junction as well as identify cyclists and pedestrians. If immediate danger is detected when executing a manoeuvre, the vehicle will be brought to a complete standstill, triggering the warning signal and preventing a possible collision.

    This advanced safety feature will be in standby mode every time the engine is switched on and is activated when the right indicator is on. While the indicator would demonstrate to other road users the intention of the driver, Turn Assist is able to ensure additional assistance so that any potential accident is avoided.

    Another first to feature on a ŠKODA is the brand’s new Exit Warning technology, which is part of the Blind Spot Detection system and comes into effect when the car is parked up. Monitoring the rear and sides of the vehicle, the system warns the driver and other passengers
    when it may not be safe to open their door through the use of visual warning lights and sounding an alert, both of which will continue until the hazard has passed or if the doors remain open. Working on both the front and rear doors, the alert will avoid passengers swinging their doors open and causing a possible collision with a cyclist – known as ‘dooring’ – or any other road users.

    The sophisticated cameras in the new Octavia are able to observe possible hazards to the rear of the vehicle up to a distance of 35 metres and at angle of approximately 120°, providing greater assurance for drivers and passengers on when it is safe to exit the car.

    Complementary to both Turn Assist and Exit Warning is Collision Avoidance Assist, with the new Octavia the first ŠKODA to become equipped with this technology. The front cameras of the vehicle are able to detect an impending accident and perform a controlled evasive manoeuvre around the hazard, be that other vehicles, a cyclist or a pedestrian. The system uses real-time data provided by the array of cameras and radars to calculate the most appropriate, and crucially the safest, trajectory around the potential danger. This calculation
    factors in the distance, width and position of the vehicle or obstacle ahead and the system will be able to perform this function at speeds of up to 90mph.

    Cyclists will further be protected by the Predictive Cycling Protection feature in the all-new Octavia which uses the front cameras and radar to trigger a cascade of warnings to the driver if a cyclist is detected ahead – and will even engage the emergency brakes if necessary to avoid any possible accident.

    Re: 2014 A6 C7 2.0tdi Stronic Gearbox fault!!

    Stronic gearboxes in A6 C7 are notorious for their unreliability - usually one of the 2 clutches goes and then you loose either even or odd gears.

    Take it to a gearbox specialist, not your usual service agent.
