Safety Evolved

The ŠKODA SUPERB has been designed with safety in mind. It boasts a wide range of revolutionary safety features from Blind Spot Detection to the Driver Fatigue Sensor, making everyday driving scenario's that bit easier.

Lane assist

Lane assist is designed to keep the vehicle in its lane and, if necessary, alert the driver of an unwanted lane change. If a vehicle is too close to a lane edge, the system gently intervenes in the steering to keep the vehicle central whilst illustrating the situation on the SUPERB’s integrated display.

Blind spot assist  

Blind Spot Detection

The ŠKODA SUPERB will protect you from vehicles in your 'blind spot' with the new Blind Spot Detection system. It uses the radar located in the rear bumper to warn you about vehicles fast approaching that you may not otherwise notice.

An LED symbol is displayed on your wing mirror if a car appears in your blind spot. The LED symbol flashes if you begin to indicate, warning you of the potential danger.

Traffic Jam Assist

In a traffic jam scenario, the system merges Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane assist and the DSG gearbox providing both comfort and safety. The vehicle provides lane guidance to help the vehicle stay in lane whilst ACC automatically brakes and accelerates during areas of congestion, following the traffic ahead. For safety, the driver’s hands must remain on the steering wheel for this to work.

Traffic assist  
Crew protect assist  

Crew Protection Assist

The proactive system is designed to mitigate possible consequences in the event of a collision. The smart system analyses driving data and reacts by retracting the front-seat safety belts, pulling up the side windows and shutting the panoramic sunroof if it sense a collision is imminent.


Up to nine strategically pl​aced airbags, provide driver and passenger safety.

Front airbags
Side airbag – front
Curtain airbag
Knee airbag
​The driver's knee airbag is positioned to protect the driver​'s leg in case of frontal impact.​
​Front airbags
​​The driver is protected by a front facing airbag mounted in the steering wheel.​
​Side airbag – front seat
​Side airbags located in the front seats protect the thorax for both driver and passenger in the event of a side impact.​
Side airbag – rear​​ seats​​
Backseat passengers benefit from the same level of side protection.

Curtain airbags

Curtain airbags provide maximum safety by covering the window area protecting the heads of the occupants in both the front and rear seats.​​

EURO NCAP Five-star Safety

Five-star safety

Awarded the maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests, the SUPERB’s innovative design and safety systems provide you and your passengers with the best possible protection in the event of an accident.

More safety features

Driver Alert
Child seat safety
The new ŠKODA Superb's rear-seat ISOFIX ancho​ring points make it even easier to safely install child seats in the vehicle, providing better attachments to the car’s body. ISOFIX​ anchoring points can also be fitted to the front passenger seat.​
ESC with Multicollision Brake
​​​​If a car is involved in an accident and the airbags are activated, it could remain in motion and cause another accident. The ESC incorp​orat​​es a multicollision brake, a safety feature which activates the braking system after a collision, bringing the car to a standstill to help prevent further damage.
Driver fatigue sensor
​​​The new Superb will monitor a driver’s behaviour, analysing whether a driver exhibits signs of fatigue. This information is compared with pre-defined characteristics of drowsy behaviour. Warnings will be displayed to r​ecommend the driver to take a break.​​​

Do not remove or change this. This is for GA tracking. You will not see in the front-end.

These vehicles are WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) type approved vehicles. More information is available at WLTP Info. However, in line with Government guidance, to facilitate comparison between different models from different manufacturers and to accommodate the full transition to this new testing regime, we have displayed NEDC figures. These NEDC figures are the values for this vehicle used in registration and taxation documentation until further notice from the UK authorities. These NEDC figures have been derived from WLTP testing, and may not be equivalent to NEDC figures from NEDC testing, so comparisons may be unreliable.
