What is it?
The Skoda Kodiaq is the Czech firm’s first seven-seater and the production version of the VisionS SUV concept which was shown at the 2016 Geneva motor show.
The finished design won’t be unveiled until the end of August. However, we've now driven some prototypes, and beneath their camouflage lies a car with the same proportions, prominent front grille and distinctive, high-set front foglights as the VisionS.
Skoda will offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain similar to that of the Vision S concept, although it won’t be available until 2019. Instead, buyers will initially be able to choose from a range of petrol and diesel engines taken from the Superb. Both front and four-wheel-drive variants will be offered, and the Kodiaq can tow up to 2.5 tonnes.
