Škoda Auto presents the second generation of the Kodiaq. It takes sustainability and efficiency to the next level and comes with a new interior concept. The all-new Kodiaq features a 13-inch infotainment display, innovative Škoda Smart Dials with haptic controls and a new range structure with Design Selections. Its five powertrains offering outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp) now also include a plug-in hybrid version – a first for the Kodiaq – with an electric range of more than 100 kilometres. The two top engines are mated to all-wheel drive as standard. Also making their debuts are the latest generations of the LED Matrix headlights and the Dynamic Chassis Control system. To date, 841,900 Kodiaqs have been produced and have found customers in 60 markets worldwide. The series has also won more than 40 international awards since 2016.
On the exterior, the advanced TOP LED Matrix headlights immediately catch the eye, while in the interior, recycled textiles and leather originating from an eco-friendly tanning process reflect the brand’s clear focus on sustainability. In addition to the new range structure with specific Design Selections and optional packages, the Kodiaq also features a new interior concept. The infotainment display is now free-standing, with a screen diagonal of up to 13 inches. A head-up display is optionally available for the first time. The selector lever is now mounted on the steering column, which lends the centre console a very clean and tidy look. The new Škoda Smart Dials are a first for Škoda. They combine haptic controls with a 32‑millimetre digital display, providing intuitive, easy and customisable access to numerous vehicle and infotainment functions. The new Phone Box enables inductive charging of two smartphones at a time, delivering 15 W of power and also cooling the devices during the charging process.
The new Kodiaq is available with two diesel and two petrol engines delivering outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). A new addition to the range is the Kodiaq’s first ever plug-in hybrid powertrain. It offers a system output of 150 kW (204 hp) and an all-electric range of more than 100 kilometres. On top of that, the 1.5 TSI with 110 kW (150 hp) marks the debut of mild-hybrid technology in the Kodiaq. The 2.0 TSI with 150 kW (204 hp) and the 2.0 TDI top diesel with 142 kW (193 hp) come with all-wheel drive as standard. All powertrains in the new Kodiaq are mated to a DSG automatic transmission as standard.
