Heavy camouflaging to the front and rear ends suggests the most obvious visual changes will come in the form of redesigned bumpers and light units, with Skoda’s trademark grille design carried over from the outgoing model.
New features for the 2020 Kodiaq are likely to include the matrix LED headlights already seen on the new Superb, along with advanced driver aids such as predictive cruise control.
The prototype spotted appears to be towing a dynamometer, suggesting it’s running a new powertrain. The refreshed Superb was revealed last month and will be available for the first time with a plug-in hybrid option. That system is also expected to make its way into the Kodiaq in due course.
