Update – Live images from 2018 Geneva Motor Show added in a gallery at the end of the story.
Skoda has revealed the Skoda Kodiaq L&K ahead of its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month. The L&K equipment line is named after the company’s founders Laurin & Klement.
L&K is the new range-topping equipment line in the Skoda Kodiaq range. On the outside, the Skoda Kodiaq L&K features a chrome front grille, exclusive 19-inch Sirius alloy wheels, Laurin & Klement badge on the front wheel arches and a modified rear bumper. The Laurin & Klement branding is used for the interior too. The instrument panel has the Laurin & Klement badge on it and the infotainment system displays the Laurin & Klement logo on the home screen.
Full-LED headlights, electrically adjustable driver's seat including memory function, aluminium pedals, door sills with 'Kodiaq' logo, ambient lighting, rain sensor, auto-dimming IRVM, textile floor mats and Canton sound system are the equipment highlights of the Skoda Kodiaq L&K.
The Skoda Kodiaq L&K debuts the Volkswagen Group’s 150 PS 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine in the Skoda Kodiaq. Skoda is using the L&K equipment line’s debut to introduce an upgraded, 190 PS version of the 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine too.
The Skoda Kodiaq L&K could go on sale in India later this year. Like in the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb, the L&K grade could command a premium of around INR 3-4 lakh over the Style grade in the Skoda Kodiaq.
