Skoda has revealed two new variants of its recently-launched seven-seat Kodiaq SUV. Both new adaptations will be making their public debut at the Geneva motor show in march.
First up is the Sportline, which is based on the standard SE trim level model. External modifications begin with a number of bodywork elements getting finished in black, most noticeably the radiator grille, roof rails, wing mirror housings and side window trims. The rear window and rear side windows are also tinted. Additional details include a narrow, silver-coloured trim below the bumper at the back, as well as newly-designed 19-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside there are Alcantara sports seats with silver-coloured stitching, not to mention a multi-function steering wheel, which – like the gearstick – is leather-covered. The multi-function display shows G-forces, the turbocharging pressure, the current engine output and the temperature of the oil and coolant.
The second new Kodiaq variant, meanwhile, dubbed Scout, gets an off-road-inspired exterior look, complete with model-specific front and rear sections as well as bespoke 19-inch wheels. Finished in silver, the new front and rear design elements form part of a new underbody protection system.
Like the Sportline, the Scout also gets a tinted rear window and rear side windows, while silver-coloured details frame the grille and wing mirrors. The roof rails and side window trims are also finished in silver.
Under the bonnet, both the Sportline and Scout will be powered by a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines, with the most powerful – a 2.0 TDI – managing 187 bhp, a top speed of 130 mph, and a 0-62 mph time of 8.9 seconds, all while delivering 49.6 mpg. All-wheel drive will also be coming as standard for both vehicles.
