The innovated ŠKODA KODIAQ brings a series of improvements to the popular SUV, over 600,000 of which have been made at four plants in different parts of the world (the Kvasiny plant in Czechia and also in Russia, India and China). The new version wants to build on this success, offering customers state-of-the-art technologies including new engines or innovated equipment and upgraded assistance systems.
“The KODIAQ was a real game changer for us. It was the first model of our SUV campaign and opened up a completely new, rapidly growing vehicle segment. Our customers and the international trade press appreciate the KODIAQ’s brand-typical qualities, just as they do with our other models,” says ŠKODA CEO Thomas Schäfer about the KODIAQ’s important role, adding that customers like the brand’s traditional values: emotive design, excellent value-for-money, roomy interiors and excellent equipment options.

Other noticeable features are the wider central air intake and aluminium-coloured details.

With its pronounced edges, the reworked bumper optically widens the car and gives it an even more dynamic look. That is enhanced by two other features: primarily the new spoiler at the top of the fifth door and also the redesigned lights that use LED technology and have a narrower and more chiselled shape. The C-shape of the lights layout has been retained, however.
„With the launch of the KODIAQ four years ago, we took a major step forward towards our current design language. Owing to a few subtle changes, our SUV now presents as even more emotive. The new front is crisper, and the design of the four newly arranged headlights lends the KODIAQ a unique character. The new, aluminium-effect details at the front and...
