› Engine: the 176-kW 2.0 biturbo diesel (240 PS) offering torque of 500 Nm is the most powerful TDI in ŠKODA’s history
› 0 to 100 km/h in seven seconds and a top speed of 220 km/h
› The configurable Dynamic Sound Boost system enhances the engine’s spectrum of sounds
The new ŠKODA KODIAQ RS exclusively comes with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder biturbo diesel engine producing 176 kW (240 PS) and maximum torque of 500 Nm. In its history spanning more than 120 years, the brand from Mladá Boleslav has never built a more powerful production diesel engine.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS is the sporty top-of-the-range model and the dynamic driving performance is worthy of this status. The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS can accelerate from a standing start to 100 km/h in just seven seconds and has a top speed of 220 km/h. The engine’s tractive power at lower engine speeds is also impressive: maximum torque is already available between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. Fuel consumption of just 6 l of diesel per 100 km* illustrates the engine’s high level of efficiency. CO2 emissions are 157 g/km*. A variety of technical factors make this possible: the biturbo engine in theŠKODA KODIAQ RS features direct injection, a Stop-Start system and brake energy recovery, for example. It also has a sophisticated thermo-management system, which swiftly brings the engine up to operating temperature once the ignition is switched on.
Dynamic Sound Boost as standard for an emotive driving experience
The new ŠKODA KODIAQ RS is the first of the brand’s models to feature Dynamic Sound Boost. The system provides a characteristic and emotive acoustic experience both inside and outside the car. Dynamic Sound Boost works using data from the in-car electronics to make the car’s acoustic character more attractive and intense. The special device produces a specific note, which complements the natural sound of the exhaust system and refines the engine’s sound profile.
Dynamic Sound Boost works in conjunction with Driving Mode Select. There are three levels of modified sound available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS depending on the selected driving performance. The sounds range from a gentle note in the ‘Comfort’ profile to a ‘Normal’ profile featuring a dynamic setup, up to the ‘Sport’ profile, which provides the most sporty and potent setting. This gives the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS a particularly dynamic note. The ‘Eco’ profile emphasises the car’s natural acoustic character.

The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such time as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO₂ emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.
