Interior: Sporty interior with Virtual Cockpit as standard

› The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS combines a sporty lifestyle with comfort and a high level of practicality
› Visual highlights include Alcantara® sports seats and black, diamond-cross stitching on the doors
› Freely programmable Virtual Cockpit with a carbon-fibre effect and central speedometer in Sport view
› Numerous Simply Clever features including umbrella compartment in the front door and misfuel protection

Even as the performance variant, the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS remains a true KODIAQ and perfectly combines its sporty lifestyle with a high degree of comfort, a generous amount of space for up to seven people and the brand-typical level of practicality. The sporty flair is emphasised by Alcantara® upholstery with contrasting stitching for both the seat covers and door trims, the instrument panel with carbon decor and the new RS logo. The freely programmable Virtual Cockpit, which comes as standard, blends in nicely with its dynamic appearance thanks to its carbon-effect background and offers an additional Sport view. The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS also offers numerous Simply Clever features that make everyday life easier, including the umbrella compartment in the front door and misfuel protection as standard.

The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS also confidently bears the new RS logo in the interior – featuring it on the multifunction sports steering wheel, the 7‑speed DSG’s gearstick knob as well as on the front and two outer seats in the second row. Furthermore, refined materials, subtle contrasting stitching and red features create sporty accents. The sport seats with integrated headrests in the first row are covered with Alcantara®, carbon-leather and leather, and are adorned with RS-specific red contrasting stitching in a diamond-cross design. Alcantara® is a material frequently used in motorsport due to its low weight and good grip; it is also used in the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS’s door trims. Here, it is finished with black, diamond-cross stitching. Red stitching features again on the steering wheel and the armrests in the doors.

Carbon decor on the instrument panel, a black roof lining and pedal covers made from stainless steel complete the SUV’s sporty appearance. The door sills featuring the KODIAQ logo and the LED package with ambient lighting come as standard. This can be set to one of ten colours: Cool White, Fire Orange, Cinnamon, RS Red, Pink, Purple, Dusk Blue, Azure, ŠKODA Green and Acid Green.

New Sport view for the standard Virtual Cockpit

The new ŠKODA KODIAQ RS’s freely programmable Virtual Cockpit, which comes as standard, features a sporty, carbon-fibre effect and offers an additional fifth display mode. This Sport view positions the speedometer and rev counter in the centre, allowing the driver to clearly see their speed and rpm even when driving in a very dynamic style. In contrast, the radio station or navigational information is displayed smaller. Alongside all this sportiness, however, there is still plenty of room for comfort. A tinted rear window and rear side windows (SunSet) and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function feature as part of the standard equipment. Along with the driver’s preferred driving mode, the selected seating position can be saved in the optional personalisable key. Upon opening the car, these settings are then automatically applied. As an option, the child safety locks for the rear doors can be operated electrically.


Available with the option of seven seats

As with every KODIAQ, the sporty RS model comes with five seats as standard which can be increased to seven as an optional extra. The five-seater offers an impressive 725-litre boot with the seats in position and 1,960 l when the seats are folded down. With all of its seats occupied, the seven-seater has a boot capacity of 230 l; this increases to 715 l with the third row of seats folded down and 1,950 l with the second and third row of seats folded down. As standard, ŠKODA equips the KODIAQ RS with the Bolero infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity as well as SmartLink+ technology. With an integrated Internet connection, the optional Amundsen and Columbus systems allow access to ŠKODA Connect’s mobile online services. In combination with ŠKODA Media Command 2.0, the free ŠKODA app enables the functions of the Amundsen and Columbus infotainment systems to be controlled on up to two paired tablets.

A Phonebox with inductive charging for mobile phones is available as an option. This wirelessly connects a smartphone to the car’s aerial and charges it inductively in line with the Qi standard, providing the device is technically compatible. An optional package includes an additional front USB port, the Jumbo Box’s rear USB port and a 230-V socket between the front seats for the rear passengers. The In-Car-Communication (ICC) makes communicating with each other in the car easier by using a microphone to capture what is said by the occupants of the front seats and amplifying it in real time through speakers in the rear.

Simply Clever features for the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS

In typical ŠKODA style, the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS offers numerous Simply Clever features that make everyday life easier. The standard equipment includes the removable and retractable boot cover and boot nets. Classics such as the umbrella compartment in the front door and ice scraper in the fuel filler flap (for selected countries) are also standard, as is a ticket holder on the A‑pillar on the driver’s side. The virtual pedal, electric tailgate incl. tip-to-close function and the removable LED torch in the boot are available as an option.
