› Extras for Ambition and Style include seat covers made of vegan and recycled materials

Mladá Boleslav / Megève, 28 June 2021 – More comfortable, more ergonomic and more sustainable: ŠKODA has developed the KODIAQ’s interior even further. For the first time, the brand’s large SUV can be equipped with ergonomic front seats including ventilation and a massage function. The covers of the optional Eco seats are made of sustainable, vegan materials. Fresh accents are provided by new decorative strips and contrasting stitching, as well as LED ambient lighting with an extended range of functions.

„We have really focused on providing greater comfort and sustainability in the interior. For the first time, we’re offering ergonomic seats with ventilation and a massage function for our large SUV, and we exclusively use animal-free, recycled materials for the optional Eco seats.“

Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design



The ŠKODA KODIAQ can now be equipped with ergonomic seats with multiway electric seat adjustment, taking comfort and ergonomics to a new level. They are covered in perforated leather, can be heated and ventilated, and offer a massage function. The seat surface can be extended manually if desired, and the integrated memory function saves personal settings at the touch of a button. Eco seats are optional for Ambition and Style. These come with high-quality seat covers made of sustainable materials. The seats in Style are upholstered in a new leather/fabric cover. A black Suedia roof lining is optional.


Contrasting stitching and enhanced LED ambient lighting create new visual highlights

The ŠKODA KODIAQ’s interior is spacious and has a high-quality feel with many carefully considered details. This includes new contrasting grey stitching (red in the KODIAQ RS) that runs horizontally across the entire width of the dashboard, as well as additional contrasting stitching on the door trims. The dashboard and doors are adorned with new brushed aluminium-effect (Ambition) or linear-diamond-design (Style) decorative strips. The LED ambient lighting with an extended range of functions now also illuminates the footwell – in one of the ten colour options – while lighting up the storage compartments in the front doors in white. When opening the front doors, a ŠKODA logo is projected onto the ground next to the vehicle. LED ambient lighting is available as an option for the Ambition and Style trim levels, while it comes as standard for the L&K, SPORTLINE and RS variants.



Leather steering wheel with a choice of two or three spokes and new functions

With the optional heated multifunction leather steering wheels in the latest ŠKODA styling, a wealth of functions for the vehicle – as well as for assistance and infotainment systems – can be managed using knurled wheels and control buttons without the driver having to take their hands off the steering wheel. Travel Assist can now be operated using just one button. Assistance systems also offer Hands-on Detect for the steering wheel. With this feature, the car is able to check at regular intervals whether the driver is touching the steering wheel consistently or whether they may no longer have control due to a potential medical emergency. The steering wheel of vehicles fitted with DSG also features shift paddles to allow the driver to select the gears manually. The KODIAQ comes with a two-spoke steering wheel as standard. A three-spoke sports steering wheel upholstered in leather is optional for most variants, and comes as standard for the SPORTLINE and RS.



CANTON sound system now with ten speakers

The optional CANTON sound system with a total output of 625 watts has also been revised. In addition to the central speaker in the dashboard and the subwoofer in the boot, the system now comes with ten speakers instead of the previous eight. The two new speakers are located in the front door panels and are framed by a circular chrome trim.

Black sports styling and carbon define the look in the KODIAQ SPORTLINE

The KODIAQ SPORTLINE’s interior is characterised by black sports styling and decorative carbon‑effect trim. The sports seats with integrated headrests are upholstered in black Suedia and feature contrasting grey stitching. The driver’s seat can be adjusted electrically as standard and has a memory function. As an extra, the front seats can be upholstered in leather, ventilated, adjusted electrically (including memory function) and their surface extended. The three-spoke sports steering wheel features contrasting silver stitching and a SPORTLINE badge, while the pedal covers have a stainless-steel look. The roof lining is black too, as is the decorative stitching on the dashboard and in the door trims (these are upholstered in Suedia in the SPORTLINE).



Ventilated seats as standard in the KODIAQ L&K

The KODIAQ L&K features perforated front seats upholstered in black or beige, and include ventilation and electric seat adjustment with memory function. The contrasting stitching on the dashboard and door trim is grey, while the decorative strips come in a piano black finish. The multifunction steering wheel bears an L&K badge; the infotainment display welcomes the driver and passengers with an L&K logo. The KODIAQ L&K features stainless steel-look pedal covers and LED ambient lighting with an extended range of functions. The standard equipment also includes the CANTON sound system.
