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.
The rear lights, with LED technology as standard, shine in the ŠKODA-typical C-shape.
The crystalline-shaped wheels provide an insight into the new distinctive SUV design from the ŠKODA brand.
ŠKODA KODIAQ joined the grand finale of 2016 Tour de France. The new SUV by ŠKODA led the racers through the legendary Paris boulevard of Champs-Elysées to the finishing line at the race‘s concluding stage.

For its Tour premiere the new ŠKODA SUV got a new camouflage cover in red, grey and black.
The red, grey and black edges of the new camouflage style inspired by ŠKODA‘s new design language and introduced together with 3D elements had been designed and manufactured exclusively for the special appearance.
ŠKODA KODIAQ led the peloton across the 21st and final stage to the finish in Paris.
On final stage of the Tour de France, the ŠKODA KODIAQ was first across the finish line.
According to former Tour winner Stephen Roche, the brand’s new, SUV cuts a fine figure on the bumpy Champs-Élysées boulevard – he is impressed
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.
When the ŠKODA KODIAQ launches at the beginning of 2017, there will be a choice of five engines: two TDIs and three TSIs.
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.
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,
The sharp, precise lines and flat raked headlights
emphasise the powerful design.
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.
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.
Can you recognise an Ash from an Aspen? Play the Name Game and find out.
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.
6th May, 2016 – the day Kodiak city
“This name puts us right on the map
– even if it’s just for a day.“
“When this SUV drives all over the world,
it takes our name with it.”
“In the Alutiiq language, all the nouns end in Q.”
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’.
Alaska is called ‘The Last Frontier’ for good reason.
Every open road is an invitation…
Kodiak Island, Alaska: the ‘Emerald Isle’.
This film shows the surprising story of the name change. And even if it was just for a day, the event has created a bond between ŠKODA and the great people of Kodiak City that’s set to last.
I’d like to stay informed about all news regarding the all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ SUV
