Self Study Program 77 – Skoda Geometry

VAG SSP  77 – Skoda Geometry: Addressing the Increasing Demands on Driving Characteristics with Modern Chassis and Electronic Systems. Self Study Program 77 covers Skoda Geometry, addressing the increasing demands on driving characteristics with modern chassis and electronic systems. As manufacturers respond to the ever-increasing demands on driving characteristics, modern types of chassis reflect the efforts undertaken to resolve the conflicting requirements on low mass, high strength suspension, and precise wheel guidance.

The independent multi-link rear suspension is now even found in lower classes of vehicles, as demands on driving stability and safety, comfort, and driving dynamics continue to increase. Aluminum alloys are increasingly replacing original steels to ensure high strength and precise wheel guidance while keeping assembly room small and production costs low.

Electronic systems such as ABS, EDL, ESP, EBD, and TCS further improve driving characteristics, ensuring optimum transfer of driving and braking force onto the roadway and desired behavior in curves.

Self Study Program 77 provides a detailed look at Skoda Geometry, making it a valuable resource for technicians and enthusiasts interested in understanding the advanced capabilities and design elements of Skoda’s chassis and electronic systems. The program covers modern types of chassis, the use of aluminum alloys, and various electronic systems to improve driving characteristics.

With its modern chassis and advanced electronic systems, Skoda Geometry is a reliable and efficient solution for addressing the increasing demands on driving characteristics. Its use of aluminum alloys and electronic systems ensure a high level of driving stability, safety, comfort, and dynamics, making it a versatile and reliable option for any driver.
