The all-new ŠKODA Kodiaq was unveiled on the 1st September at its official launch in Berlin. Based on the Vision S concept car, the Kodiaq is ŠKODA's first foray into the 7-seater SUV market, but with its distinctive style and wide three dimensional radiator grille, the Kodiaq is sure to cut a striking presence on the road.
As the manufacturer’s first large SUV and seven-seater vehicle, the new ŠKODA Kodiaq is at the very forefront of stunning SUV design. The exterior is sculpted with sharp points and angular lines, and the harmonious interplay of light and shadow can be seen in all areas of this striking body. This signals a new approach to ŠKODA’s design that champions precision and clarity.
Evocative of chiselled stone, the Kodiaq’s body compliments any outdoor setting, whether that’s a mountain or a seaside getaway. The pronounced three-dimensional radiator grille that spreads across the front end of this SUV means your ŠKODA Kodiaq will be instantly recognisable on the road. The headlights are also a notable feature. ŠKODA’s full-LED technology seen through narrow, raked headlights signals the striking presence of the car and gives the driver a clear view of the road ahead.
The crystalline design elements accent the Kodiaq’s striking presence as do the contours that streamline the car’s bonnet. The vertical struts in the grille and on the logo continue these clean lines, evoking the Czech Republic’s rich history of crystal-glass art design – a fitting tribute to the carmaker’s roots. Such attention to detail is continued around the reverse of the car where dynamically cut crystalline housing supports the lower rear window.
As the first ŠKODA with seven seats, the Kodiaq has a capacity of up to 2,065 litres. So that means plenty of room for all passengers to ride comfortably, plus enough space for luggage too. The adjustable second row seats come as standard, with backrests that can be tilted for individual comfort. The space and convenience the Kodiaq affords its passengers makes it the ideal family car.
For all of its aesthetic appeal, the Kodiaq pulls no punches when it comes to technological features. The KESSY GO keyless-start feature allows for uncomplicated driving and its alarm and interior monitoring feature will help keep your vehicle secure. ŠKODA has also introduced a top-of-the-range Swing radio with a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, alongside SD card, USB, DAB and Smartlink connections.
The Kodiaq’s 1.4-litre TSI turbo petrol engine will please even the most seasoned driving enthusiast. Producing 123bhp and fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox, the ride is both smooth and exciting. Additional engine options include a 148bhp 1.4 TSI petrol and a 178bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol, plus 2.0-litre diesels with 148bhp or 187bhp, so whatever you want from your new SUV, ŠKODA has you covered.
Safety is paramount for ŠKODA and this is reflected in the Kodiaq’s full catalogue of driver assist programmes. Adaptive Cruise Control, City Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist (a feature which works at speeds of up to 40mph) all feature in this impressively secure SUV. And reversing has never been easier with surround-view cameras that give a top-down view of the car on the central screen during low-speed manoeuvres.
