Mladá Boleslav / Megève, 28 June 2021 – More power and less weight provide the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS with even greater sports handling. The body applications are gloss black and new 20-inch Sagitarius alloy wheels come with aerodynamic covers. The KODIAQ RS now features a model-specific, sleek front bumper. The interior highlights include the digital instrument cluster and black, Suedia-upholstered seats and door trims. The new 2.0 TSI petrol engine with an output of 180 kW (245 PS) replaces the previous biturbo diesel.
With its stylish black body applications and sporty design features, the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS is immediately recognisable as a member of the Czech carmaker’s RS family. The newly designed, hexagonal ŠKODA grille with its expressive double ribs is finished in gloss black, as are the window frames and roof rails. The RS-specific front apron has been revised and is body-coloured. Additional eye-catchers at the front of the KODIAQ RS include the slimmer headlights, which are now equipped with full-LED Matrix technology as standard. The rear – as with all RS models – features a reflector spanning the entire width of the vehicle. The RS logo can be found on the tailgate and on the ŠKODA grille. The burnished 20-inch Sagitarius alloy wheels in metallic black and aerodynamic covers come as standard.
