Electric folding wing mirrors

Post by Guido » Mon Aug 06, 2018 1:02 pm

Hi all,

I'm just about to order my new Kodiaq but couldn't quite work out if the SEL comes with electric folding wing mirrors - the Tech Spec says "Electrically adjustable, heated and foldable door mirrors with boarding spots"

But then one of the options is: "Electrically adjustable front seats with memory function, lumbar support and electrically folding door mirrors"

I'm confused! Any help would be much appreciated - thanks!

Yes, my SEL also has power folding mirrors as standard......and given the number of damaged wing mirrors I see around the streets it's a good job it has!!

Skoda has at last seen sense. You can now fold the mirrors up to 30mph. On my old Yeti they would not fold over 9mph. Apparently it was a 'safety function'. Which I think was damn silly as I very nearly got hit up the bum on numerous occasions.

The difference is the "memory function". When you set a seat position in the electric seat memory it also remembers the position of the door mirrors.

@ Guido - The SEL spec does indeed include electrically adjustable and folding door mirrors. But the Edition spec inludes as standard the option you refer to with the electrically adjustable front seats with memory function, lumbar support and electrically folding door mirrors".

This is really only of benefit if more than one person regularly drives the car since the facility allows personal seat and mirror positions to be stored and quickly recovered by pressing one of the preset buttons.

I'm 5'11" and the only driver. The only benefit to me is when my car is serviced by a much smaller engineer/driver. They never, ever put the seat and mirrors back where they found them.

Sorry gojoholo - you beat me to it.

I don’t understand. Why would you want to fold the mirrors on the move? (Even ignoring the fact that it would be illegal not to have at least one external mirror, on a car built nowadays.)

Fold out at over 9mph, I am guessing?

Must be out over 9mph - doesn't make sense otherwise
