Mladá Boleslav, 8 April 2024 – Škoda Auto presents the second generation of the Kodiaq, taking sustainability, spaciousness and safety to a new level. The Czech car manufacturer’s SUV flagship has seen its dimensions increased once again and now features the first elements of the Modern Solid design language. The all-new Kodiaq comes with state-of-the-art infotainment systems, including an optional 13-inch screen and a head‑up display. Innovative Škoda Smart Dials with haptic controls and a 10-inch Virtual Cockpit come as standard. The voice control system will from mid-2024 onwards become even more advanced with the integration of the AI-based chatbot ChatGPT. Škoda’s large SUV also adopts a new interior concept based on Design Selections. The five powertrains offer outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp) and are always mated to a DSG automatic transmission. The powertrain line-up now also includes a plug in hybrid version with an electric range of more than 100 kilometres and an entry-level mild-hybrid powertrain. The two top engines are combined with all-wheel drive as standard. Also making their debuts are the latest generations of the LED Matrix beam headlights with a significantly higher light output and the Dynamic Chassis Control system (DCC Plus).

"Our all-new flagship SUV takes the Škoda hallmarks our customers love to the next level: more space, more features, and more efficiency. With innovations like Smart Dials and sleek, sustainable interior materials, elements from our Modern Solid design language, and updated safety and assistance systems, the next-generation Kodiaq makes everyday exploring even more rewarding. We have also expanded our line-up of highly efficient powertrains, introducing a plug-in hybrid with a purely electric range of over 100 km, furthering our commitment to sustainable mobility. Since its 2016 launch, the Kodiaq has been a real game-changer for our brand, playing a crucial role in Škoda’s growth and consistently resonating with our customers. The new Kodiaq is perfectly placed to continue this successful legacy."

Second generation offers new design, greater sustainability and new technologies

On the exterior, the cutting-edge second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights and the front grille featuring a horizontal light strip immediately catch the eye, while in the interior, recycled textiles and leather originating from an eco-friendly tanning process reflect the focus on sustainability. In addition to the new range structure with specific Design Selections and optional packages, the Kodiaq also features a new interior concept. The infotainment display is now free-standing, with a screen diagonal of up to 13 inches. A head-up display is optionally available for the first time. The gear selector lever is now mounted on the steering column, which lends the centre console a very clean and tidy look while adding extra space. The Škoda Smart Dials are another brand-new feature in the all‑new Kodiaq – three rotary controls positioned below the infotainment screen. Combining haptic controls with a 32‑millimetre colour display, they provide intuitive, easy and customisable access to various vehicle and infotainment functions. With the integration of the AI‑based chatbot ChatGPT into its Laura voice assistant, Škoda is enhancing the in-vehicle experience of many customers and helping to make everyday life easier. The new ventilated Phone Box enables inductive charging of two smartphones at the same time, delivering 15 W of power.



Premiere for plug-in hybrid with an electric range of more than 100 kilometres

The new Kodiaq is available with two diesel and two petrol engines delivering outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). A new addition to the range is the Kodiaq iV fitted with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. It offers a system power output of 150 kW (204 hp) and an all‑electric range of more than 100 kilometres. On top of that, the 1.5 TSI with 110 kW (150 hp) marks the debut of mild-hybrid technology in the Kodiaq. The range-topping 2.0 TSI with 150 kW (204 hp) and 2.0 TDI with 142 kW (193 hp) come with all-wheel drive as standard. The powertrains in the new Kodiaq are always mated to a DSG automatic transmission.
