THE NEW ŠKODA RAPID - Safety



Top 5-star rating for the ŠKODA RAPID


The ŠKODA RAPID delivers safety without compromise. This model was awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test in 2012 for its exemplary safety features.

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.

Bi-xenon headlamps

The RAPID features an innovation in lighting technology – headlights with a low-energy bi-xenon dipped and full 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 do not need to be equipped with headlight cleaning or dynamic inclination alignment. They emit a pleasant colour similar to daylight.

Airbags and impact protection

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.
6 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 is placed in the dashboard.
Side airbags
Side airbags, placed in the front seats, protect the thorax and pelvis of both driver and passenger in case of side impact.
Head airbags
Head airbags cover the window area and car’s inner structures from A-pillar to the C-pillar. They protect the heads of occupants on both front and rear seats and thus provide the maximum safety.

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.

Other Safety Features

The ŠKODA RAPID is about safety for all passengers. Add to above mentioned safety systems, for the RAPID are following features available as a standard or option:
 
  • ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces. 
  • MKB activates the braking system after a collision to prevent further damage.
  • MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface. 
  • EDL prevents slipping of one of the drive wheels when driving on a road with decreased adhesion. 
  • By increasing the braking pressure, the braking assistant helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can lead to a significant reduction in required braking distance. 
  • The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
  • Tyre pressure control keeps the driver informed about tyre pressure at all times. 
  • The optional hill-hold control assistant helps drivers start uphill safely. The system activates itself on inclines of five percent or more and ensures easy and safe uphill starting without the use of the hand brake. The system keeps the car from rolling backwards or stalling.
