The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, with its individual interior and exterior design combines its distinct appearance with the versatile nature of the ŠKODA KODIAQ – its exterior length of 4.70 metres offering up to seven seats as well as the largest amount of interior space and largest boot capacity within its segment. The design of the new all-rounder mirrors the brand’s design identity and blends emotion and rationality in one package. Furthermore, the soon-to-be presented ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE comes with features designed to provide pure driving pleasure.
Black design features underline its dynamic appearance
The bodywork elements and special features finished in black underline the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE’s dynamic focus. The radiator grille, roof rails, wing mirror housings and side window trims all come in black while the rear window and rear side windows are tinted. The rear is enhanced by a narrow, silver-coloured trim below the bumper.
The side view of each of the ŠKODA KODIAQ models is characterised by short overhangs, their sloping roofline that is visually extended by a line in the D-pillar, and the tapered rear. The protective side trims of the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE are body-coloured. It comes with 19-inch alloy wheels in a special new design as standard. As an option, 20-inch wheels are also available. Furthermore, it bears a small badge with the model designation on the front wing.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE’s equipment
The generous array of standard equipment includes Driving Mode Select (Normal, Sport, Eco, Individual, Comfort, Snow), which can be used to control the engine, automatic transmission, power steering and air conditioning. Furthermore, the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE comes with the following standard equipment: electronically adjustable and foldable wing mirrors with dip and memory function as well as Boarding Spot (lights in the wing mirror which shine onto the floor), rear-view mirror with rain sensor and dip function, a Maxi DOT display, LED ambient lighting for the interior which can be set to one of ten colours, the KODIAQ logo in the door sills, ‘Sport’ trim, Alcantara decorative inserts and floor mats with silver-coloured stitching.
There is a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE:
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is available with all-wheel drive as standard. The all-wheel-drive system works quickly and intelligently, its control unit constantly calculates the ideal driving torque for the rear axle. In normal driving conditions, especially with a light load and when coasting, the multi-plate clutch transfers the engine power in an efficient way, mainly to the front wheels.
Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is available as an option for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE. Electronically regulated dampers can be set by the driver to one of three modes, Comfort, Normal and Sport.
All-wheel drive provides an increase in safety and traction. This is particularly noticeable when towing a trailer. But this technology also means the sporty SUV is well equipped for rough terrain. With a ground clearance of 194 mm, it can even negotiate larger bumps. It has a ramp angle of 19.7 degrees; the approach and departure angles are an impressive 22.0 and 23.1 degrees due to the short overhangs.
Driver assistance systems
With their wide range of driver assistance systems, all variants of the ŠKODA KODIAQ set benchmarks within their segment. New functions include Trailer Assist, Blind Spot Detect, which warns of any vehicles in the blind spot, and Rear Traffic Alert, which monitors traffic coming from the sides and behind when manoeuvring etc. The Crew Protect Assist function, which closes windows and the sunroof in the event of an impending accident and tensions the seat belts of the front seats, works in conjunction with the improved Front Assist function, which includes the City Emergency Brake and predictive Pedestrian Protection functions. Park Assist’s functions have been further perfected. The Area-View system is also a first for the brand: the surround-view cameras, which are located in the front and rear sections as well as in the wing mirrors, come with wide-angle lenses and allow views of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle to be displayed on the monitor. These include a virtual top-down view and 180-degree images from the areas to the front and rear. This makes it easier to drive in confusing situations or on rough terrain.
Infotainment and ŠKODA Connect
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is equipped with all the modern infotainment systems of the new large SUV from Czech Republic. The capacitive touch displays feature a glass design (except for the standard Swing sound system). The top-of-the-range version, the Columbus navigation system, has a 9.2-inch monitor, a Wi-Fi hotspot and an LTE module. The automatic Emergency Call function comes as standard. The mobile online services from ŠKODA Connect are the perfect addition for the state-of-the-art infotainment system. They set new benchmarks in terms of navigation, information, entertainment and assistance and can even be configured using your home computer or the ŠKODA Connect app.
World premiere at the Motor Show Geneva
The new Kodiaq, Superb and Octavia proved an unbeatable trio as ŠKODA took home three category wins at the 2017 Auto Express New Car Awards and a special award for its Reconnection advertising campaign.
