Skoda Readying The Kodiaq For Tour De France’s Final Stage

Skoda continues the extensive teasing campaign of its upcoming large SUV, the Kodiaq, which will make an appearance at this year’s Tour de France, in the final stage of the competition.

Marking its 13th consecutive time as an official partner at the event, Skoda is providing a total of 250 cars as organizational and support vehicles as well as more than 50 team cars.

The Kodiaq will take center stage, being used as a mobile control center by race Director Christian Prudhomme. It won’t be unveiled in its final form just yet, though; instead, the car will be covered in a special camouflage foil, which took specialists 120 hours to apply.

The 4.7-meter long SUV, which is said to offer the largest boot space in its class and a customizable third row of seats, will be officially unveiled on September 1, in Berlin, prior to its introduction at the 2016 Paris Motor Show a few weeks later.

At the time of its launch, it will become available with an assortment of turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, mated to a six-speed manual or a DSG, which will send the output to the front axle, in lesser versions, or to the all-wheel drive, in the better equipped models.
