ŠKODA give a further tease ahead of the KODIAQ September premiere
Ahead of its world premiere on 1 September in Berlin, ŠKODA has revealed images of the KODIAQ, its new, large SUV model. They give an impression of how ŠKODA will transfer the brand’s new expressive design language into the SUV segment.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ aims to impress: the wide, three-dimensional radiator grille gives the KODIAQ a striking presence. In combination with the narrow, raked headlights, which are available with full-LED technology for the first time, the brand’s first large SUV will be instantly recognisable on the road. The side and rear views are also sharp: the doors are athletically shaped and the tailgate is expressively sculptured. The rear lights, with LED technology as standard, shine in the typical ŠKODA C-shape.
As one would expect from a ŠKODA, the KODIAQ offers an exceptional amount of space, with a capacity of 720 to 2,065 litres (with the rear seats folded down), offering the largest boot within its class and for first time ever, ŠKODA will offer a seven seat option.
The KODIAQ also features the latest driver assistance systems to ensure improved safety and comfort, the ŠKODA Connect mobile online services; the Infotainment Online services to ensure more information and navigation in real time, and the Care Connect services to provide remote access as well as assistance.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ will celebrate its world premiere on 1st September 2016, in Berlin.
