Skoda have not officially confirmed the engine range for the Kodiaq yet it's likely those engines in the VW Tiguan and Seat Ateca siblings will feature in the Kodiaq too.

That means the engine line-up will likely be as follows:

Petrol engines

1.4-litre 148bhp

2.0-litre 178bhp

2.0-litre 217bhp

Diesel engines

2.0-litre 148bhp

2.0-litre 181bhp

A plug-in hybrid is expected to join the range later in its lifecycle. It will probably debut in the Tiguan first.

Some more news on the engine range:

The Skoda Kodiaq will go on sale in early 2017 with a choice of five different engines, optional all-wheel drive and seven seats.

A 178bhp 2.0 TSI petrol engine will top the range, while the 1.4 TSI will be offered with 123bhp or 148bhp outputs. The 2.0-litre diesel engine from the Skoda Superb will also be available, with either 148bhp or 187bhp.

There will be a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearboxes, and while front-wheel drive will be standard, all-wheel drive is available.

We now have the full information o the Kodiaq engine range:

Engines

Five powertrains, two TDI and three TSI engines, make up the engine range at the launch of the ŠKODA Kodiaq. They have capacities of 1.4 and 2.0 l, and power output ranges from 92 kW (125 PS) to 140 kW (190 PS). The diesel and petrol engines feature turbocharged direct injection and fulfil EU6 emission standards. All engines feature a Stop-Start system, brake energy recovery and a powerful thermo-management system, contributing to low consumption.

The 2.0 TDI is available in two versions. The first version generates 110 kW (150 PS) and 340 Nm. The top-of-the-range version delivers 140 kW (190 PS) and 400 Nm. On average, the entry-level TDI consumes 5.0 l of diesel (56.5 mpg and 131 g CO2/km) per 100 km. The most powerful diesel engine accelerates the large SUV from 0-100 km/h in 8.6 s and reaches a top speed of up to 130 mph.

The range of petrol engines consists of two 1.4 TSI engines and one 2.0 TSI. The entry-level version of the compact four-cylinder generates 92 kW (125 PS) and 200 Nm of torque. Its NEDC consumption is 6.0 l per 100 km, which corresponds to 47.1 mpg and 140 g CO2/km. In the more powerful version, the 1.4-litre exerts 110 kW (150 PS) and 250 Nm of torque; its ACT system - Active Cylinder Technology - shuts down the second and third cylinders when the load and engine speed are low. The top-of-the-range 2.0 TSI petrol engine features a new combustion process for high efficiency. Power output is 132 kW (180 PS), torque is 320 Nm.

Transmission

The ŠKODA Kodiaq is available with various transmission technologies. Depending on the engine, there is a 6-speed manual gearbox or DSG transmissions with six or seven speeds.

The new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is making its debut in a ŠKODA and has been designed for powerful engines with torque of up to 600 Nm. The DSG transmission is very compact and provides quick and comfortable gear changes.

The driver can operate the 7-speed DSG in automatic mode, or control it manually using the gear lever or steering wheel paddles. In Eco mode the ŠKODA Kodiaq will coast at speeds above 12mph when the driver takes their foot off the accelerator.

Both top-of-the-range engines - the TDI with 140 kW (190 PS) and the TSI with 132 kW (180 PS) - are coupled with the 7-speed DSG and all-wheel drive. The 1.4 TSI with 110 KW (150PS) and all-wheel drive is available with either the manual 6-speed transmission or 6-speed DSG; front-wheel drive is coupled with the 6-speed DSG. The entry-level diesel with all-wheel drive is offered with the manual 6-speed transmission or the 7-speed DSG; the front-wheel-drive version is offered solely with the 7-speed DSG. The entry-level TSI is available with manual 6-speed transmission and front-wheel drive.

The all-wheel-drive system with electronic control is available for most engine variants. It delivers a big increase in traction, stability and driving safety - even off-road.

The centrepiece of the all-wheel drive is an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch which works intelligently and quickly. The control unit constantly calculates the ideal driving torque for the rear axle; loss of traction is virtually eliminated due to a control system that is dependent on driving status and when in overrun or at low load, drive is via the front axle, which saves fuel.

Chassis

The MacPherson front struts consist partially of aluminium; the steel four-link rear axle absorbs the longitudinal and transverse forces separately. The power steering, using an efficient electro-mechanical drive, ensures exact contact with the road and works in close harmony with several assistance systems in the ŠKODA Kodiaq.

In the Active and Ambition trim levels, the large SUV from ŠKODA comes equipped with 17-inch wheels as standard; 18-inch wheels are standard in the Style trim level. The range of optional extras extends to polished 19-inch wheels.

The brakes - with large ventilated brake discs at the front - are strong and stable. When cornering quickly, the electronic differential lock XDS+, which is a function of the Electronic Stability Control (ESC), makes handling even smoother and safer for both front- and all-wheel drive.

As an optional extra, ŠKODA is making Driving Mode Select available in its large SUV. It allows the driver to adjust the operation of the engine and DSG management, power steering, air conditioning and other systems in Normal, Eco, Sport and Individual modes. The all-wheel-drive versions also offer Snow mode, which adapts the operation of the ABS, ASR and ACC (if fitted) systems, as well as the engine management and electronically controlled, all-wheel, multi-plate clutch to slippery road conditions.

Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is also available as an option, and is integrated into Driving Mode Select. Here, electric valves control the work of the shock absorbers depending on the situation. Combined with Driving Mode Select, the system adapts to the driving style of the driver and manoeuvres the driver safely on the road. Using DCC, the driver can choose between Comfort, Normal or Sport modes.

Off-road mode can be selected by the simple touch of a button (optional for the all-wheel-drive versions in combination with Driving Mode Select). Here, the chassis, engine management and brakes adjust their operation specifically to rough terrain. This mainly involves pulling away, traction and deceleration. In off-road mode, Hill Descent Assist helps the driver to safely master driving downhill over rough terrain by braking appropriately.
