Mladá Boleslav, 26 June 2023 – With the second generation of the Kodiaq, Škoda has further improved its globally successful large SUV. It now comes with a more distinctive design and even more space, especially for passengers in the third seat row. In addition, the second generation of the Kodiaq is marked by a new interior concept featuring a touchscreen display measuring up to 12.9 inches, a gearshift lever on the steering column, manual and digital controls and a tidy, well-organised centre console. The engine roster includes two petrol and two diesel engines ranging from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp) as well as a plug-in hybrid version – a first for the Kodiaq. This offers an electric range of more than 100 kilometres. The safety equipment is once again state-of-the-art, boasting for example second-generation full LED Matrix headlights and even more advanced assistance systems. Also on board: new Simply Clever features, such as a rear storage compartment with a cup holder and a dual Phone Box that provides cooling and simultaneous charging for two mobile phones.

“The Kodiaq has been an absolute success for Škoda ever since its launch in 2016, when it kickstarted our SUV campaign. With its powerful and crystalline design language, spacious interior and excellent value for money, it attracted many new customers and won renowned international awards. The second generation has all the prerequisites – including a plug-in hybrid version – to add another great chapter to this success story.”

Klaus Zellmer, Chairman of the Board of Škoda Auto

“Improving a vehicle as popular as the Kodiaq is always a challenge. Nevertheless, we further sharpened the look while keeping the distinctive elements of our SUV design language. In addition, the new Kodiaq offers even more interior space and will take safety, technology and versatility to the next level. With the plug-in hybrid version, we are also adding a new powertrain offering more than 100 kilometres of electric range to the portfolio.”

Johannes Neft, Škoda Auto Board Member for Technical Development

More power, new technologies and greater sustainability

The second-generation Kodiaq is characterised by an even more sophisticated design, the use of sustainable materials and innovative technologies such as second-generation full LED Matrix headlights. Its two petrol and two diesel engines range from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). The 2.0 TDI with 142 kW (193 hp) and the 2.0 TSI with 150 kW (204 hp) come with all-wheel drive as standard. The Kodiaq iV, the first plug-in hybrid in this model series, also offers a total power output of 150 kW (204 hp). It has an electric range of more than 100 kilometres. The highlight is the entry-level 1.5 TSI petrol engine with 110 kW (150 hp), which marks the debut of mild-hybrid technology in the Kodiaq. Both hybrid engines are part of the latest generation of EA 211 evo2 engines. They run on the fuel-efficient Miller cycle and feature a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. The 1.5 TSI with mild-hybrid technology also comes with latest-generation active cylinder technology (ACT+).

The Kodiaq – the model that kickstarted Škoda’s SUV campaign

As the first model in Škoda’s successful SUV campaign, the Kodiaq brought the brand’s crystalline design language to the SUV category in 2016. At the same time, it established the typical nomenclature that all subsequent Škoda SUVs with internal combustion engines followed: their name starts with a “K” and ends with a “q”. A superb amount of space for up to seven passengers and advanced technology quickly made the Kodiaq one of the most successful models in Škoda’s global portfolio. It has sold almost 792,000 units in a total of 60 countries to date. In 2018, the Kodiaq RS was the first SUV to join the brand’s sporty RS family. The most important markets for Škoda’s large SUV are China with 160,000 units sold by the end of 2022 and Germany with 114,200 units. Next come the UK and the Czech Republic at 47,200 and 42,400 units respectively. It has therefore contributed greatly to Škoda’s successful development on the international markets and has received excellent feedback from customers as well as from experts and the motoring press: to date, the model has collected more than 40 international awards. In November 2016, British car magazine TopGear named it the world’s “Best Car for Big Families”. This was followed by “Car of the Year” awards in the Czech Republic, Poland and Bulgaria, as well as several “SUV of the Year” awards in various categories from British, Chinese, French and Indian media. In total, the Kodiaq won Auto Bild Allrad’s “All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year” title four times in its biggest European market, Germany. The German Auto Test magazine also awarded it the title of “Best Tested Import Vehicle” in 2017. In addition, it won the renowned Red Dot Award for outstanding product design in 2017.

New Simply Clever features – it’s the Kodiaq way

The first generation of the Kodiaq already featured many of Škoda’s Simply Clever ideas. In 2016, for example, it introduced door edge protection and an electric child safety lock for the rear doors. The second generation now boasts a bevy of new features: a new cooled dual Phone Box allows two mobile phones to be charged at the same time with an increased charging power of 15 W. Making its Kodiaq debut is a rear storage compartment with a cup holder on the central tunnel as well as a display cleaner for the touchscreen displays. The umbrella and ice scraper are now made of sustainable materials.
