The Skoda Kodiaq is the production version of the Skoda VisionS concept and the first among the future models to feature this concept’s design language. It’s underpinned by the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform. Five engines will be available at launch, three TSI petrol and three TDI diesel. Two seating layout options will be available: two-row (5-seat) and three-row (7-seat).
