Škoda Auto has presented the second generation of the Kodiaq which takes sustainability and efficiency to the next level and comes with an entirely new interior concept. 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.

There have been 841,900 Kodiaqs produced across 60 markets worldwide to date and has won more than 40 international awards since 2016.

Klaus Zellmer, CEO of Škoda Auto, says: "Our all-new flagship SUV has everything it needs to be a worthy successor in the Škoda Kodiaq line. The new Kodiaq takes the Škoda features our customers appreciate to the next level: more space, more features, and more efficiency. With innovations like the well-received Smart Dials and sleek interior materials, alongside elements from our Modern Solid design language and updated safety and assistance systems, the next-generation Kodiaq makes everyday exploring even more rewarding. We have also broadened our range of highly efficient powertrains, introducing a plug-in hybrid with an electric range of over 100 km, furthering our commitment to sustainable mobility. Since its 2016 launch, the Kodiaq has played a crucial role in Škoda's growth, consistently striking a chord with our customers. The new Kodiaq is perfectly placed to continue this successful legacy."

This generation of Kodiaq has a further refined emotional and sculptural SUV design which gives it a more powerful and solid appearance. The new Škoda lettering and squared off wheel arches are immediately eye catching whilst TO LED Matrix headlights and a front grille with a horizontal light strip are making their debut on the all-new Kodiaq.

The model has also increased in length by more than six centimetres which translates as more space for up to seven passengers or plenty of luggage. The Kodiaq’s aerodynamics have also been improved with a cd value of now 0.282 which was achieved by introducing active cooling shutters and redesigning the front and rear bumpers.

The interior has been entirely redesigned and features a new set of controls. A 10-inch Virtual Cockpit is available for the driver alongside a free-standing infotainment screen that measures up to 13 inches. For the first time in the Škoda Kodiaq, a head-up display is available to complement the Virtual Cockpit.

The new centre console has been tidied up with the selector lever now mounted in the steering column and four USB-C ports with an output of 45 W ensure fast charging for smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Making its Škoda debut is a Phone Box which allows for inductive charging of two smartphones at 15 W and includes a cooling function.

New to the list of Simply Clever details are a display cleaner stored in the centre console and a storage compartment on the central tunnel in front of the sliding rear seat bench, which once again enables backward and forward adjustment. Also, on board in the second Kodiaq generation is the door edge protection.

The second generation Škoda Kodiaq continues to offer a wide range of modern and highly efficient engines and includes a plug-in hybrid powertrain for the first time. This offers an output of 150 kW, equivalent to 204hp and n all electric range of more than 100km. Additionally, the entry level 1.5 litre TSI engine is supported by mild-hybrid technology.

The new Škoda Kodiaq is due to be released in 2024. For more information, please contact the teams at John Clark Škoda in Aberdeen, Dundee, and Perth today.
