ŠKODA KODIAQ
THE ALL-NEW ŠKODA Kodiaq UNLEASHED LIVE
SEPTEMBER 1

The ŠKODA KODIAQ, which will celebrate its world premiere in September, makes a strong statement with an impressive combination of powerful design and generous space.

The close-up images underline the brand’s high and uncompromising design and craftsmanship standards...

The wide, three-dimensional radiator grille is striking, with its own character. In combination with the narrow, raked headlights, which are available with full-LED technology for the first time, the brand’s first large SUV is an unmistakeable presence on the road.

The side and rear views are also crisp: the doors are athletically shaped and the tailgate is expressively sculptured.

ŠKODA KODIAQ Drive

The 4.70-m-long SUV is a real all-rounder. It offers the largest boot capacity within its class. With the optional third row of seats, it has yet another unique selling point in the segment. The ŠKODA KODIAQ represents all of the brand’s strengths – expressive design, a high degree of functionality and many ‘Simply Clever’ features.

The new ŠKODA KODIAQ feels equally at home on rough terrain. Upon reaching the end of the road, the off-road mode supports the driver when using four-wheel drive.

Even at first glance, the ŠKODA KODIAQ is a true ŠKODA: with a design that is full of character and emotion, and thereby brings the brand’s new design language into the SUV segment.

Functionality at its most attractive

The exterior is clear-cut, the lines are distinctly three-dimensional – giving the new ŠKODA SUV an unmistakable presence on the road. The interior is also characterised by clear lines and impresses with generous space alongside its elegant appearance.

The sculptured rear section accentuates the sporty, robust character.

Let’s Reconnect.

As any parent will know, children are intensely curious. They’re always asking questions! And if we can’t give them the answers, they lose interest.

At ŠKODA, we believe that if we lose an interest in the natural world we face being disconnected with what really matters.

The best way to reconnect is to rediscover the natural world around us with family and friends. And the all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ is designed to enable you to do just that.

It’s time to Reconnect

Names matter. That’s why we take great care in naming our cars – like the all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ.

We also understand the importance of knowing the names of things, especially in nature. If we lose an appreciation of the natural world, we face being disconnected with what really matters.

Alaskan city renames itself for announcement of ŠKODA’s all-new SUV

How would you react if a carmaker from another continent came to your city and proposed changing its name? Surprised? Bemused? Or perhaps delighted that, finally, your hometown was getting some long-overdue recognition worldwide?

See how the city folk embraced their new ‘name day’…or did they?

On May 6th, 2016 Kodiak, Alaska became Kodiaq to coincide with the official announcement of our all-new SUV. A film crew was there to document the remarkable story of the change.

When the good people of Kodiak were told a car was to be named after their island (and its bear) they were delighted – until they were told there was a little catch involving the letter ‘q’.

Signs across the city were changed from ‘Kodiak’ to ‘Kodiaq’.
