Safety features

The Škoda Scala is all about safety without compromise. Besides the safety systems already described, the following features are available as standard or an option:

Isofix and Top Tether anchorage points to fasten a child seat to the second-row outboard seats. Isofix is also available for the front-passenger seat.
› Unlike cruise control, which maintains a set speed, the speed limiter allows the driver to travel at any speed up to, but not more than, the predefined value.
ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces.
› By increasing the braking pressure, the HBA braking assist helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can lead to a significant reduction in the braking distance required.
EBD automatically optimises braking pressure and the overall braking balance and prevents the rear wheels from overbraking.
MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels, which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface.
› The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
EDL helps when accelerating or driving uphill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.
TSA operates when the vehicle is equipped with an original towing device with its own control unit. The system works on the principle braking one or more wheels and simultaneously reducing engine torque as necessary. The TSA system intervenes and helps stabilize the car and the trailer.
XDS+ helps the driver during sharp turns and ensures that the vehicle behaves neutrally during dynamic cornering. The control electronics essentially simulate the presence of a self-locking differential to improve traction and driving dynamics during turns. As a result, the vehicle will take bends much more assuredly and naturally.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring TPM+ keeps the driver informed of the tyre pressure at all times.
› The optional Hill-Hold Control helps drivers to start uphill safely. The system activates itself on inclines of five degrees or more and ensures easy and safe uphill starting without the use of the handbrake. The system keeps the car from rolling backwards or stalling.
Flashing brake lights reduce the risk of rear-end impact, especially when approaching the traffic jams on highways or sudden braking in front of the unexpected obstacle.

Drive and steering

Sport Chassis Control with Driving Mode Select

For maximum driving pleasure, the Scala can be fitted with Sport Chassis Control, incorporating Driving Mode Select.

Sport Chassis Control, a system of adjustable shock absorbers, is intended for customers who, rather than settling for the normal chassis tuning, want sporty shock absorbers to improve handling if they opt for a more dynamic drive in certain situations. Sport Chassis Control always comes with Driving Mode Select, which allows you to select a sporty chassis mode.

Normal mode is designed for everyday travel, driving on poor road surfaces, and long journeys. Sport mode changes the suspension so that the shock absorbers keep the rubber clinging to the tarmac as much as possible. Stiffer suspension enhances how responsive the Scala is on dynamic drives and is particularly suited to good road surfaces.
