Self Study Program 26 – Active and passive safety in the SKODA OCTAVIA

VAG SSP 26. We wish to present the design of these modified systems in this Self Study Programme and to explain how they operate. Technical progress in vehicle engineering is constantly perfecting vehicles in terms of active safety and is helping, more than ever, to prevent or minimise the consequences of accidents in the passive field.

Our safety engineers have implemented further measures in terms of active and passive safety in the SKODA OCTAVIA.

For instance, the antilock brake system has been equipped with additional functions, the existing safety system of airbag and seat belt tensioner has been enlarged to include side airbags for driver and front passenger.

The anti-theft alarm system also now features additional components.
