This time, the KODIAQ also took them on a ride round their island. They were able to come to grips themselves with the 150 PS delivered by the 1.5 TSI engine, the roominess of the interior and the luggage compartment, and the Simply Clever solutions, such as the protective door moulding and the ice scraper that every ŠKODA vehicle has under the fuel tank lid. This is precisely the sort of gadget that would make the Alaskan winter easier for local drivers to handle.
The two ŠKODA KODIAQ were used to take not only local inhabitants, but also journalists from around the world, on a tour round the island. The cars reached the Pacific Spaceport Complex, used for launches into space, Chiniak Lake, and the foothills of Pyramid Mountain without a single complaint.
