ŠKODA Spaceback - Safety

New ŠKODA Spaceback


Safety comes first​

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

ESC, or Electronic Stability Control, helps every driver to handle critical situations, when the car is getting into the skid. The control unit constantly compares current data about the driving behaviour of the vehicle with the preset values. If the values do not match, the control unit gives command to stabilize the vehicle. The stability program uses the abilities of ABS, ASR and few other special sensors. This allows it to prevent slipping or locking the wheels. The principle of its function is limiting the engine torque and braking the inner rear wheel in case of understeer, or outer front wheel in case of oversteer. ​
ESC provides significant help to the driver, but it still can’t overcome the laws of nature. The ESC can help the driver only if the limits of grip are not exceeded, at least on the wheels used to stabilize the vehicle.

Xenon headlamps

The Spaceback is the first ŠKODA car to feature an innovation in lighting technology –headlights with a low-energy xenon dipped beam. They generate a longer and wider beam of light than halogen lamps, compared to which they have 33% higher luminous flux and up to three times longer life. Because of their low output compared to standard xenon headlamps, they need not be equipped with headlight cleaning or dynamic inclination alignment. They emit a pleasant colour similar to daylight. ​

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)

On the road with different surfaces on each side, for example dry tarmac on one side and ice or snow on the other, you will appreciate the EDL differential lock. This system works together with ABS sensors. Electronic control unit continually receives data from ABS wheel speed sensors on the driven wheels. If ECU detects that one wheel is slipping, it applies the brake pressure to match its speed to the second, non-slipping wheel.​
The EDL advantages are most obvious during acceleration or driving up the hill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.​
Side airbags
Side airbags, placed in the front seats, protect the thorax and pelvis of both driver and passenger in case of side impact.​
Isofix anchoring points
Isofix anchoring points on the rear seats ensure better mounting of the seats in the vehicle and provide its better attachment to the car’s body. This is important for safety in case of a crash. Further anchoring points in the luggage compartment can be used for fixing the child seat by the TopTether system.​​
Four airbags
The main purpose of airbags is to prevent, with the help of the safety belts, the occupants’ bodies from contact with any rigid parts of the car, or at least minimize the consequences of this contact.​
Front airbags
The driver is protected by front airbag mounted in the steering wheel, the passenger’s front airbag (with optional deactivation) is placed in the dashboard.​

Antilock Brake System (ABS)

The objective of the ABS is to keep the car under control even during abrupt braking. The car with its wheels locked is uncontrollable, be it on slippery surface or dry tarmac. The ŠKODA ABS keeps the wheels rolling by reducing the braking force on individual wheels. This enables the driver to avoid the obstacle.​
Electronic control unit continuously compares data from the speed sensors on individual
wheels. If abrupt deceleration of any wheel is detected, the hydraulics receive
a command to release the brake pressure, so the wheel resumes rolling.

The signal from wheel speed sensor changes again and the ECU recognizes
that the wheel is unblocked again. It is therefore able to transfer
the brake force again and the sensor gives command
to apply the brake pressure. Up to 16 such
cycles can occur each second​.​

The ABS consists of three main parts:


Electronic control unit
Wheel speed sensors
Hydraulics

Safe body design

High quality, rigid body structure is the essence of safety in all types of crashes. To achieve high durability of the monocoque, extremely strong materials were used, especially around the passenger area, where only minimal deformations are allowed. 

Front and rear part of the vehicle provide maximum energy absorption during crash. Special engine mounts prevent its intrusion to the passenger area. In case of heavy impact, the engine slides under the passenger area, where it doesn’t endanger anyone. 

The design of the steering wheel column limits movement of the steering wheel against the driver in case of the front impact. Placing of the pedals ensures that they slide away in case of impact, reducing the risk of the leg injury to the driver.​ ​
