The brand transfers its new design language into the SUV segment with a design that reflects the car's versatile character: the ŠKODA Kodiaq features a distinctive interplay of elegant lines, sporty contours and robustness.

All of the ŠKODA Kodiaq's lines are clear, precise and clean-cut - this applies in particular to the distinctive, highly recessed shoulder line. Double horizontal lines on the front symbolise protection and strength. The wide, three-dimensional radiator grille is striking and the narrow, raked headlights, which flow seamlessly into the radiator grille, give the ŠKODA Kodiaq a distinctive appearance. The two double-headlights create a striking face and stand out due to their crystalline structure, which can also be seen in the rear lights. Here, ŠKODA's Head of Design, Jozef Kabaň, and his team were inspired by traditional Czech crystal glass art, also reflected in the SUV's highly contoured surfaces.

The long wheelbase and short overhangs point to the large interior and the wheel arches are slightly angular - a key element of ŠKODA's SUV design language. LEDs are used as standard in the C-shaped rear light design that is typical of ŠKODA. A choice of 14 paint finishes is available - four standard colours and ten metallic colours. The appearance of the components varies according to the three trim levels - Active, Ambition and Style.


The ŠKODA Kodiaq is 4,697 mm long, 1,882 mm wide and 1,676 mm tall (including roof rails); its wheelbase measures 2,791 mm. The Kodiaq is based on Volkswagen Group's modular transverse matrix (MQB) in which strict lightweight construction plays an important role. For the body, a combination of hot-stamped metal sheets forms the ultra-strong backbone. With the entry-level TSI engine and front-wheel drive, the large SUV weighs just 1,452 kg (without driver), or 1,540 kg with the 1.4 TSI engine and all-wheel drive.

Torsional stiffness, construction, comfort and crash safety are also superior and the large SUV achieves a cx value of just 0.33.

Well you have absolutely NO CHANCE! Skoda have really cocked-up this launch. even the dealers are complaining to Skoda about the delay between launch and delivery. They are apparently sick of having to fend off customers waving cheque books because you can't even order one yet unless you live in Czechoslovakia!
Currently you cannot expect to be driving your new Kodiaq until April 2017
