Skoda offers to belt up your dog

By CARSIFU | 20 July 2015

PRAGUE:  It's summertime and Skoda now offers practical accessories for dog owners who love to take their four-paw companions on holiday with them in the car.

The  range includes everything from seatbelts to pet barriers.

If your furry family member is sitting in the back, Skoda’s practical Backseat Protection will ensure that the upholstery stays clean. Be it in the Skoda Citigo or Skoda Superb, the protector is large enough to cover the entire backseat and stop hair and dirt from getting on the seats or floor.

The solid material of the cover is water-resistant and easily washable. The non-slip surface also increases safety for the animal while the car is moving. The cover is easily fixed in place using hooks and fasteners attached to the front and rear headrests.


Many dog owners appreciate the space and functionality of a Skoda estate model. The Trunk grille of the luggage compartment available for the Fabia Estate, Octavia Estate and Superb Estate enable your pet to sit safely in the boot section. This accessory effectively divides the boot into two sections, with the dog in one area and your suitcases and other items in the other. This is both a practical and safe solution.

The same is true of the Trunk grille, especially designed for the boot of the Fabia Estate and Superb Estate. This vertical guard, positioned directly behind the rear headrests, prevents the dog from climbing over onto the backseat from the boot. This practical solution gives the driver a clear view thanks to its lattice design.

To keep the boot as clean as possible, even when your companions have been playing outdoors, all models are available with tailor-fitted protective mats and inserts.

The rubber boot mats are moulded exactly to the shape of the boot-floor and does not have to be specially secured. This mat can easily be removed and cleaned whenever necessary. The accessories range also includes a robust plastic protective liner for the boot.

The Rapid, Rapid Spaceback, Yeti, Octavia and Octavia Estate come with a double-sided floor covering for the boot on request. One side is covered with carpet, the other side with a dirt and water-repellent material. When travelling with a friend with mucky paws, simply flip it over onto the easy-clean side.
