Skoda has finally taken the wraps off their first-ever mid-size SUV – the Skoda Kodiaq – in Berlin yesterday. It will commence sales across Europe early next year, and will arrive in India in H2 2017.
The exterior styling of the Skoda Kodiaq was previewed by the Skoda VisionS concept, featuring characteristic angular lines, Skoda’s butterfly grille, sleek double headlamps, and LED taillamps. It measures 4,697 mm long, 1,882 mm wide, 1,667 mm tall and has a 2,791 mm wheelbase.
Inside, the styling has familiar lines, yet has a unique look altogether. It is available with three upholstery options: a fabric/leather combination and leather or Alcantara covers, and five interior trim options. It’s the first Skoda to offer third-row seating as an optional feature. With the third row seats folded down, the Kodiaq has a boot volume of 720L, which can be increased to 2,065L with the second row folded.
The Kodiaq’s engine lineup will include the 1.4 TSI, 2.0 TSI and 2.0 TDI engines. The 1.4 TSI will be available in two power states: 125 PS and 155 PS, while the 2.0 TSI produces 180 PS. The diesel variants will pack the 2.0 TDI engine also available in two outputs: 150 PS and 190 PS. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and DSG gearbox, while an AWD system is available in all variants except the base 125 PS 1.4 TSI.
