ŠKODA KODIAQ RS: stronger, lighter and faster

› New 2.0 TSI petrol engine is 60 kg lighter than its predecessor
› New 20-inch wheels, model-specific front apron and gloss black visual touches
› Interior with RS-typical design features and black Suedia upholstery with contrasting stitching

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.

Black Suedia upholstery in the interior

Black sports styling shows off the interior of the KODIAQ RS, which features a digital instrument cluster with model-specific layouts as standard. The sports seats with integrated headrests are upholstered in black Suedia and feature striking contrasting red stitching. A red RS logo is embroidered on the front seats. Red stitching can also be found on the dashboard and the armrests in the doors. The door trims are upholstered in black Suedia, with black diamond cross stitching. As an option, the roof lining comes in exclusive black Suedia and the front seats can be upholstered in leather, be ventilated and electrically adjustable (including memory function). The seat surface can also be extended.



Progressive steering and Dynamic Sound Boost as standard
