Skoda Kodiaq cabin revealed ahead of official debut

Skoda has shared pictures of the cabin of its new Kodiaq ahead of the SUV’s official debut on September 1. The photos reveal a seven-seater (a first for Skoda) cabin very similar to that of the Superb as well as the Octavia.

 

Standard Skoda elements like the instrument cluster, steering wheel as well as the touchscreen infotainment system are present here while the entire cabin has been trimmed out in a combination of grey and black. However, we believe that Skoda will also offer it in shades of beige as well as brown depending on the market. There are also chrome mouldings for most of the plastic surfaces as well as a blue strip running below the window line. The third row is foldable and can expand the boot space from 720 litres to 2,065 litres.

Standard features are expected to include climate control, Skoda Connect infotainment system.Also expected to be a part of the deal will be plethora of aids like cruise control, ESCproximity sensors and lane departure warning assist.

The Kodiaq was revealed as the Concept D last year and is the second SUV from the Czech automaker after the Yeti. When launched, it will slot in alongside the Superb and be offered as an alternate body style to the sedan.
This will be an important car for Skoda in the Indian market as it will fit in both with their plan to have a more premium oriented line up as well as to cater to the growing demand in India for crossovers/SUVs. Skoda has already announced that the car will arrive here in 2017 and we believe that they will locally assemble it to keep prices competitive.

Skoda has just officially revealed pictures of its upcoming Kodiaq SUV, much before the world premiere that’s set for September 1, 2016 in Berlin.

Skoda has designed the Kodiaq to impress with its wide three-dimensional radiator, sleek full-LED headlamps and sharp sculpted design cues. Even the rear tail lamps light up in the typical Skoda C-shape. On the inside, it will offer seven seats and promises various options of adjustment to get a wide range of seating arrangements. In the process, the car maker has also unleashed enough boot capacity for it to swallow between 720 litres and 2065 litres of luggage space (rear seats folded).

Skoda’s Kodiaq will come with features like ‘Area View’ that uses cameras at all ends to display the car’s environment on the screen. There’s even a feature called ‘Manoeuvre Assist’ that will make the car brake if an obstacle is spotted behind the vehicle while reversing. With the advent of Kodiaq, Skoda is expected to offer a generous amount of space, functionality and state-of-the art assistance systems to attract buyers. Skoda India is likely to launch the Kodiaq for our market in 2017.

Skoda has even released the first photos of the Kodiaq, with the new SUV covered in white, grey and black camouflage. The red, grey and black edges of the new camouflage are inspired by Skoda’s new design language.

With 4.7 metres in length, the Kodiaq is claimed to offer the largest boot space in its class and a customizable third row of seats. Under the hood, the Kodiaq will be offered with the familiar VW Group engines, starting with a 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit. The more popular 1.6 or 2.0-litre diesel engines will also be on offer, in various states of tune. The latter will include the 237bhp twin-turbo diesel from the Volkswagen Passat.
