Skoda Octavia – driver assistance systems

Skoda Octavia – driver assistance systems 

Skoda Octavia, available in offer of PANEK Rent a Car, is equipped with advanced safety and driver assistance systems to make every journey comfortable and hassle-free. By entrusting the car to the client, we want it to receive the best possible protection, which is why the cars in our rental company use the latest technology. 

Safety first 

The basic safety system that you can find in our Skoda Octavia is FRONT ASSIST. It is an extensive system for monitoring the space in front of the car based on radar sensors and cameras. It constantly monitors what is happening in front of you and informs the driver of any dangers. In critical situations, when there is a real risk of a collision, it takes the initiative and brakes in an emergency to avoid a collision or minimize the effects of a collision. The main advantage of FRONT ASSIST is that it can accurately calculate the braking distance and its force, which is why it guarantees practically 100% efficiency. It can recognize not only the car in front of us, but also a pedestrian or a cyclist who have no chance against the car.

Another support system in Skoda from PANEK rental is Active Cruise Control ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL. The system also relies on cameras and radars, and the manufacturer confirms its effectiveness even at a speed of 210 km / h. The task of the Active Cruise Control is to maintain the speed behind the vehicle in front, accelerate to the set speed and brake until a stop. The system is especially helpful on the freeway, where the driver can slightly relax and let the computer maintain speed. Also on board there is DRIVER ALERT, a system that detects fatigue that suggests taking a break if the driver relaxes too much.

Everyone deserves a little comfort 

However, we associate computerization in cars mainly with systems that improve the comfort of traveling. In Skoda Octavia, available from PANEK Rent a Car, you will find parking sensors at the front and rear, as well as a rear-view camera. There are also heated front seats and the KESSY FULL keyless access. All you need to do is have the key in your pocket or purse to open the vehicle door and start the engine. The tailgate opens electrically, and the twilight and rain sensor LIGHT AND RAIN ASSIST will ensure good visibility in changing weather conditions

An important element of Octavia’s equipment from PANEK Rent a Car are TOP LED MATRIX headlamps. It is an extremely advanced technology that allows you to drive at night with the road lights permanently on. A camera located under the rear view mirror transmits data to the computer, which distributes the light in the individual LEDs of the headlights so as not to dazzle oncoming drivers. The technology known from premium segment cars and luxury cars is already available in our Skoda Octavia, and a night trip to Poznań, Krakow, Katowice, or a holiday trip with the family abroad will now become much safer.

In this article, we present you only some of the systems that improve the safety and comfort of driving a rental car. We cordially invite you to take advantage of the PANEK Rent a Car offer and check what other advantages are hidden in our Skoda Octavia.
