New Skoda Octavia Crew Protect System Explained [Video]
If the Octavia detects a collision is inevitable, the Crew Protect Assistant systems kick in, taking pro-active measure to reduce the damage to the car's occupants. - the system pre-tightens the seat belts for both the driver and the passengers. In addition, the system closes the side windows (except for a remaining gap) and the sunroof in case of critical unstable driving situations such as in strong oversteering or understeering with triggering of the ESC. This prevents dangerous debris from flying into the car if you're going to flip it.
We've learned from annoying ESP systems that safety is not on everyone's mind, so Skoda does allow you to change the setting for Crew Protect to account for sportier driving sales.
