Mladá Boleslav, 13 April 2021 – ŠKODA takes the look and feel of its large SUV’s interior to a new level. In addition to new decorative strips, additional contrasting stitching on the dashboard and door panels are now included in the KODIAQ, which can accommodate up to seven people with an optional fold-out third row of seats. Ventilated ergonomic seats including a massage function are available as an option for the driver and front passenger – this is a first for the model range. The LED ambient lighting now has more functions.

„We have once again further developed the spacious and comfortable interior of the KODIAQ. New contrasting stitching and the LED ambient lighting’s extended range of functions create new visual highlights, while subtle details harmoniously emphasise the overall appearance of our large SUV. For the first time, we are also offering ergonomic seats in the KODIAQ. These can be electrically adjusted and ventilated if desired, and boast a massage function.“

Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design

In addition to being extremely spacious, the ŠKODA KODIAQ also offers a high-quality interior with perfectly arranged details. This includes, for example, new contrasting grey – red in the KODIAQ RS – stitching that runs horizontally across the entire width of the dashboard. New contrasting stitching can also be found in the door panels. The dashboard and doors are adorned with new brushed aluminium-effect (Ambition) or linear-diamond-design (Style) decorative strips. The door handles in the Style and L&K variants sport circular chrome trims. The LED ambient lighting now also illuminates the footwell in one of ten colour options, and the storage compartments in the front door panels in white. When the driver’s or front passenger door is opened, the 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; for the L&K, SPORTLINE and RS variants this feature is part of the standard equipment.

ŠKODA KODIAQ - Interieur

Increased comfort due to optional ergonomic seats

For the first time, the ŠKODA KODIAQ is available with a choice of electrically adjustable ergonomic seats. They are covered in perforated leather, can be heated and ventilated, and offer a massage function. The depth of the seat can be adjusted manually if required; the memory function saves personal settings and restores them at the touch of a button. The L&K variant features perforated-leather front seats including adjustable ventilation as standard. Eco seats, featuring high-quality seat covers made of vegan, recycled materials, are available as an option for the Ambition and Style trims. The standard seats in the Ambition trim level are upholstered in a new fabric, while the M pack for Style offers fabric/leather seats as standard.



Steering wheels in the new ŠKODA design featuring two or three spokes

Up to the L&K variant, the KODIAQ’s multifunction leather steering wheel comes in the new ŠKODA design and features two spokes. A three-spoke sports leather steering wheel is available as an option, which is standard equipment in the SPORTLINE and RS variants. A wealth of functions for the vehicle, as well as for assistance and infotainment systems, can be controlled using knurled wheels and control buttons without the driver having to take their hands off the steering wheel. Certain assistance systems also offer Hands-on Detect for the optional heated steering wheel. Using 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 of the KODIAQ due to a potential medical emergency. The steering wheel of vehicles fitted with DSG can also be equipped with shift paddles to allow the driver to select the gears manually.



Enhanced CANTON sound system

The optional CANTON sound system was also upgraded when the ŠKODA KODIAQ was 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. The CANTON sound system which boasts an output of 575 watts comes as standard in the KODIAQ L&K.
