In 2000, ŠKODA introduced its first mass-produced RS model – the OCTAVIA RS. Since then, “RS” has been used to denote extremely powerful ŠKODAs. The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS is the brand’s first SUV to join this select club. Its bonnet will conceal the most powerful diesel engine in ŠKODA’s history – the 2.0 BiTDI, delivering 176 kW, or 239 PS, and maximum torque of 500 Nm.
ŠKODA KODIAQ RS proved just what a sport high performer it is back in May, when – still camouflaged – it was driven by seasoned racer Sabine Schmitz around Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife (“North Loop”) in record time for a seven-seater SUV.
