There are features in your vehicle you hope you will never have to use – and yet it is reassuring to have them on board. This is true, for example, of the automatic emergency call eCall, which has been mandatory for every new car in the EU since 2018. The mobile online services of ŠKODA Connect also offer other helpful functions in all current ŠKODA models with the exception of the CITIGOᵉ iV, grouped as proactive services under Care Connect. These support drivers with any questions they have about the car. Two functions in particular help to ensure a relaxed journey, especially during the travel season: the info and breakdown calls, the buttons for which can be found in the roof module next to the red emergency call button and are marked with an ‘i’ or a spanner.
The new Kia Sorento - Parking Assistant
The new Sorento is also the first Kia in Europe to be available with the new Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA). The driver can autonomously pull the car out of a parking space by remote control on his key ring. This is intended to make it easier for passengers to get in and out of tight parking spaces or when another driver is parking too close to one of the doors. The parking assistant automatically brakes the Sorento as soon as it detects another car, a cyclist or a pedestrian behind the car or when it crosses the rear of the car. The Safe Exit Assist function also prevents the rear doors from being opened if the vehicle detects a danger coming from behind, e.g. B. a cyclist or another vehicle
