A full set of images of the new, large SUV were published earlier this morning, revealing the full design of the car.
We’ve previously only seen elements of the car’s design through teaser images and the concept precursor to the Kodiaq, the VisionS concept, so this is the first time we’ve seen the car in full.
As expected, the design draws heavily on the styling of the Superb, albeit in a taller, more rugged fashion.
We already know that the 178bhp TSI petrol motor will sit atop the Kodiaq’s range of petrol engines. A 123bhp 1.4 TSI will be the entry-level option, with a 148bhp version of the same motor filling in the gap.
Diesel engines, sales of which are expected to heavily outnumber those of petrols, will come in the form of the Volkswagen Group's 2.0 TDI in 148bhp and 187bhp guises. Six-speed manual and DSG dual-clutch automatic gearboxes will be on offer, as well as both two and four-wheel drive.
Skoda has already announced that the Kodiaq will have 720 litres of bootspace, rising to 2065 litres with the second row of seats folded. A third row of seats will be available as an optional extra, making seating for seven possible.
We’ve also already seen the car’s interior, which Skoda revealed earlier this week, including the central touchscreen infotainment system.
As with most new cars being revealed in recent months, a raft of semi-autonomous features will be included, including a system that assists with steering when towing.
