Mladá Boleslav, 8 April 2024 – The new Škoda Kodiaq comes with a completely redesigned interior and a new set of controls. Its free-standing infotainment screen measures up to 13 inches. Positioned below the infotainment screen are the new Škoda Smart Dials, providing quick access to numerous vehicle functions. In a first for Škoda’s large SUV, a head-up display is available to complement the reworked 10-inch Virtual Cockpit featuring new graphics. The new centre console has a clean, tidy look, as the gear selector lever is now mounted on the steering column. Four USB-C ports with an output of 45 W ensure fast charging of smartphones, tablets or laptops. Also making its Škoda debut is a Phone Box that enables inductive charging of two smartphones at 15 W and includes a ventilating function. Ergo seats with a pneumatic massage function are available as an option. Design Selections featuring numerous sustainable materials are also making their debut in the Kodiaq. In addition, the second generation of the SUV is always online, offering numerous mobile online services and infotainment apps.

Smart Dials combining haptic and digital elements plus more space in the centre console

The Škoda Smart Dials in the second-generation Kodiaq are three new, intuitive multifunctional controls below the infotainment display. They can be operated by turning and pressing, and each carries a digital colour display with a 32-millimetre diameter. This clever combination of haptic and digital elements allows quick access to numerous vehicle functions. The controls have a Unique Dark Chrome finish and a tactile surface texture composed of tiny pyramids. The two outer Smart Dials for the driver and front passenger control the interior temperature, seat heating and seat ventilation. Each Smart Dial’s current function is shown in the display. A short press of each knob selects from the chosen functions and all adjustments of the set functions are done by turning the Smart Dial. The centre Smart Dial controls up to four functions selected by the user from the following six: the volume of the infotainment system, fan speed, air direction, smart air conditioning, driving modes and map zoom. Configuration of the centre Smart Dial is performed via a long press of the centre Smart Dial and then in a relevant infotainment system menu. Four additional hardware buttons between the dials provide direct access to windscreen defogging, rear window heating, air recirculation and automatic air conditioning functions. In a first for the Kodiaq, the gear selector lever is mounted on the steering column for easy access. As a result, the centre console has a clean and tidy look, and the storage compartment’s capacity has increased by 2.1 litres.

Central display measuring up to 13 inches and optional head-up display

For the first time in the Kodiaq, the central infotainment display is a free-standing unit. The handrest below makes it easier to use the touchscreen, which measures 10 inches or optionally 13 inches in combination with the navigation function. The standard 10-inch infotainment system features DAB+ radio reception, along with gesture and voice control, while the optional 13-inch system adds navigation and online radio. The reworked infotainment menu structure offers three basic menu icons: “Home”, “Car” and “App”. A head-up display complementing the standard 10-inch Virtual Cockpit with revised graphics is making its debut in this model series. The all-new Kodiaq is also equipped with four USB-C ports as standard (two at the front and two at the rear). Providing an output of 45 W, they can even be used to power laptops, in addition to charging smartphones and tablets. A 15 W USB-C port on the back of the interior mirror is also standard. Eight speakers in the door panels and a central speaker in the instrument panel are included as standard for great sound. A Canton Sound System with 13 speakers, including two surround speakers, is available as an option. These are complemented by a subwoofer in the space-saver spare wheel.

Improved climate control, massage seats and a Phone Box for two smartphones

The climate control menu has been updated to allow quick access to all heating functions for the seats, steering wheel, windscreen, and rear window via a convenient Heaters button, a feature that will be introduced in the second-generation Kodiaq later this year. AGR-certified Ergo seats with a pneumatic massage function are optionally available. They each have ten air cushions that can be programmed using the infotainment menu or the controls on the seat, with up to eight different massage functions to choose from. The Kodiaq also offers an optional Phone Box for simultaneous inductive fast charging of two smartphones at 15 W, complete with a ventilating function.

Four Design Selections to choose from

The Kodiaq adopts the Design Selections already known from the Enyaq family, featuring coordinated colours and materials. The choices include Loft with grey recycled fabric seat upholstery and Lounge with grey Suedia microfibre upholstery in combination with wool, artificial leather and X-shaped decorative stitching in Mustard Yellow. The third option Suite features sustainably treated leather in black with grey X-shaped decorative stitching or in Cognac with tone-on-tone stitching. All chrome detailing in the interior has been replaced with the new Unique Dark Chrome finish. In addition to the Smart Dials, this also includes the trim on the door panels and on the redesigned steering wheel, the frame of the infotainment screen, and other decorative strips accentuating the instrument panel’s air vents, the top part of the dashboard and the cover for the storage compartment in the centre console. Ambient lighting and footwell lighting come as standard with all interior Design Selections.

Numerous sustainable materials and new Simply Clever features

The interior of the Kodiaq is focused on sustainability. All textiles used for the seat upholstery, the carpets in the cabin and the luggage compartment as well as the headliner contain recycled polyester or, in the case of the Design Selection Lounge, a combination of recycled yarns and natural wool. The leather featured in the Suite Design Selection is tanned in an environmentally friendly way using residues from coffee bean processing. Two iconic Simply Clever details, the umbrella and the ice scraper, are now also made from sustainable materials. New to the list of Simply Clever details are a display cleaner stored in the centre console and a storage box on the central tunnel in front of the sliding rear seat bench, which once again enables backward and forward adjustment. Two additional seats in the third row are optionally available. The two cargo elements under the boot floor have been improved and are now made of aluminium. Also on board in the second Kodiaq generation is the door edge protection. There is now a QR code in the boot, linking users to an instructional video on how to make full use of the luggage and storage compartments.
