How has car equipment changed in 30 years? Brutal! – The truth

-

Were cars cheaper three decades ago? Yes, but also much more modestly. This is shown by the analysis of Aures Holdings, which compared the equipment of cars in car dealerships in 1992 and 2022. Photo: Škoda-Auto Škoda Favorit – 30 years Cars have changed a lot in thirty years. Safety and comfort features, which in the nineties were only the privilege of the most expensive models, are now standard. Even in used cars. Today, air conditioning, electric window control, airbags, anti-lock braking system ABS or stabilization system ESP seem to be a self-evident standard. But 30 years ago it was quite different. Some of these elements you didn’t even find in premium cars. So let’s go back in time to the nineties, when Škoda Favorit, Škoda Felicia and of course Škoda 105 to 130 ruled our roads. You couldn’t even dream of “climate” back then. And certainly not in other models from the Eastern bloc, such as Lady, Moskvich, Wartburg, Trabant or Dacia. According to Aures Holdings, which is the largest seller of used and new cars, every car today has at least one airbag, power steering, electric windows, ABS or air conditioning, and about three-quarters of cars have an ESP stabilization system or cruise control. In 1992, nothing like this existed, that is, unless you bought the Western models from Tuzex, which certainly not everyone had. Modernization in the area of ​​safety and comfort started only in the following years, more precisely in 1994 with the arrival of the affordable Škoda Felicia.

Among the foreign vehicles in the used car offer were, for example, Ford Escort, Ford Sierra, Opel Kadett and Astra, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Uno, VW Golf or Renault 19. At that time, every fourth car had an airbag. Power steering was also not commonplace, it appeared only in every second car. Every third had electric windows, every sixth had ABS, and only one in ten vehicles had air conditioning. Cruise control was even rarer – only one vehicle out of a hundred had it.

Well, there is no ESP stabilization system, because this technology was only introduced in 1995 – even then only in the most luxurious models. The anti-skid system became more widespread only at the turn of the millennium. Among the popular Czech vehicles, airbags, power steering, electric windows, ABS or air conditioning were available for the first time only in the Škoda Felicia, which replaced the Favorit at the top of the sales statistics in 1999. Drivers of domestic vehicles only encountered ESP and cruise control for the first time in the Fabia and Octavia, which began to dominate sales statistics in bazaars even later.

At the beginning of the nineties, for example, the towing equipment had 20% of cars, while now it is about a quarter, so their share is only growing slowly. An even better example is the opening sunroof. Today, roughly 10% of vehicles have it, whereas before it was almost one in three. And for example, the CD changer, previously a desired symbol of luxury, has almost disappeared from vehicles today. Along with the technology itself. “It won’t take long and it’s practically impossible to come across a used car with a CD changer,” says Petr Vaněček, operations director of Aures Holdings. It was most often located in the passenger’s compartment, under his seat or in the luggage compartment and allowed the alternate playback of about six CDs without the driver having to change them directly in the player. This technology was overtaken by digital carriers and mobile phones. In any case, we have moved forward in three decades. This means that even if you buy a used car that is ten or more years old, you can be sure that it is much safer and more comfortable than those from the post-revolution period.
