Mladá Boleslav / Tianjin, 4 November 2019 – Alongside the KAMIQ GT, ŠKODA’s SUV line-up in China includes four other models. The spacious KODIAQ can accommodate up to seven people and has an exclusive Chinese sibling, the elegant KODIAQ GT coupé. The KAROQ is 50 mm longer than the European version, and the entry-level model, the KAMIQ, was specifically developed for the Chinese market.
In the spring of 2017, the launch of the ŠKODA KODIAQ marked the beginning of ŠKODA’s extensive SUV campaign in China. Its distinctive design language, which excudes a rugged nature and a high level of safety, was the role model for all of the brand’s SUV family members that followed. Thanks to its large wheelbase of 2,791 mm, the KODIAQ quickly won over many customers in China with its very spacious interior, which can accommodate up to seven people, its high degree of functionality, intuitive operation, fantastic workmanship and excellent value for money. It is based on Volkswagen Group’s modular MQB platform, is 4,698 mm long, 1,883 mm wide and – including the roof rails – has a height of 1,676 mm. Boasting a capacity of up to 2,065 l with the rear seats folded down, the KODIAQ has the largest boot in its segment. Whilst the five-seater’s boot can hold at least 506 l, the seven-seater’s is still 190 l even if all the seats are occupied. Numerous assistance systems, such as Front Assist, as well as innovative infotainment and connectivity solutions are available as optional extras. This includes Baidu CarLife for example, which makes it possible to access the Infotainment Online mobile online services at any time. There is a choice of two powerful yet efficient petrol engines: the 2.0 TSI outputting 137 kW (186 PS) and the 2.0 TSI producing 162 kW (220 PS).
