Škoda Auto has begun a major new campaign to showcase the Kodiaq Seven Seater SUV, sue in early 2017.
Full of character: transfer of design language into the SUV segment
Even at first glance, the ŠKODA Kodiaq is a true ŠKODA: with a design that is full of character and emotion, its brings the brand’s new design language into the SUV segment. In day-to-day use, it offers a variety of qualities for family, leisure and business.
Whether as a five- or seven-seater, the ŠKODA KODIAQ has plenty of space. With a capacity of up to 2,065 litres, the five-seater boasts the largest boot within its class. Adjustable rear seats come as standard, with backrests that can be tilted as required.
At the top of the segment: connectivity solutions
With innovative connectivity solutions, the ŠKODA Kodiaq is at the top end of its segment. The infotainment elements originate from Volkswagen Group’s second-generation Modular Infotainment Matrix. They offer numerous functions and interfaces, and are all equipped with capacitive touchscreens.
The top-of-the-range Columbus and Amundsen systems come with a WiFi hotspot. As an optional extra, there is an LTE module for the Columbus system – which establishes an internet connection using the fastest mobile communications standard currently available.
Passengers can use this to browse online content and send emails using their mobile phones or tablets.
Reliable support: driver assistance systems
The ŠKODA Kodiaq features a wide range of driving assistance systems. The Area View cameras, new for ŠKODA, display the car’s immediate surroundings on the monitor. When a trailer is attached to the large SUV, the Tow Assist system takes over manoeuvring when reversing slowly.
The new predictive pedestrian protection function compliments Front Assist. Parking Distance Control with braking function, also new, provides support with parking manoeuvres – the Kodiaq brakes automatically as soon as it detects an obstacle.
Powerful and agile:engines and chassis
When the Kodiaq launches at the beginning of 2017, it will be available in a choice of five engines: two TDIs and three TSIs. The most powerful petrol engine, the 2.0-litre TSI, provides dynamic driving performance with a power output of 132 kW (180 PS); it works just as efficiently as a lower capacity powertrain thanks to a newly developed combustion process.
