Skoda Kodiak (Skoda VisionS) – IAB Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Production-spec Skoda VisionS will make its debut in H2 2016.
Skoda has revealed the VisionS SUV concept that previews their first ever mid-size premium SUV. While the concept model will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, the production spec Skoda Kodiak (name unconfirmed) will debut in H2 2016.
Based on the exterior styling of the concept, IAB’s graphic artist, Shoeb R Kalania has rendered the production-spec SUV to give a basic insight into its design. The Kodiak will adopt Skoda’s latest design language, characterized by angular lines, long butterfly grille and sleek LED headlamps with LED DRLs.
Although the interior hasn’t been revealed yet, expect the Kodiak to feature panoramic sunroof, electric tailgate, Columbus and other infotainment systems based on Volkswagen Group’s MIB technology (Modularer Infotainment-Baukasten) with satellite navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and Canton sound system.
It will be based on the MQB platform from the second generation VW Tiguan, and will also share engine lineup with the VW. It includes a lineup of 2.0-liter TSI and TDI engines with power outputs ranging from 150 PS (148 hp) to 240 PS (237 hp). An AWD system could be standard in top-end grades of the Skoda Kodiak.
