All-New Skoda Kodiaq SUV Leaked In All Of Its Glory

With just a few hours left until its official presentation in Berlin, set to be broadcasted via live streaming, the all-new Skoda Kodiaq shows its exterior design in a bunch of leaked images.

Unsurprisingly, the Czech SUV resembles the VisionS study, presented in Geneva earlier this year, sprinkled with a few extra touches in tone with the brand’s latest models.

Characterized by a tall front end, pronounced wheel arches and a generous ground clearance, it is 4.7 meters (185 in) long and, in its base trim, will come with a five-seat layout. However, customers will get the chance to check the third seat row on the options list.

New photos of the interior reveal a clean design for the dashboard, a three-spoke steering wheel, a large touchscreen display, a familiar-looking instrument cluster and a wireless phone charger, which makes the Kodiaq the first Skoda model to offer this technology.

Underpinned by the MQB architecture, the Kodiaq will be powered by the VW Group’s TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines, with the output channeled to either the front wheels or to all four of them through a six-speed manual or an (optional) DSG gearbox. We’ll get the full details once the new Skoda Kodiaq debuts later today.

    Now we need the pricing 🙂

    Damn… I’m disappointed. I love the look of the latest Octavia and Superb, but it didn’t translate well to an SUV. Feels like a missed opportunity.

  • Ermal Morina

    The back doesn’t cut it for me,other than that,it looks decent for a Škoda

  • Akira

    Slap a chinese logo on it and we would say it’s a uninspired copy.

  • It looks like the headlights (both front and rear) are too little, like its out of scale

  • Kash

    I really like this from the outside. The sides aren’t overdone yet they aren’t bland either. The front and rear are nice but they’re not too far out there to alienate too many people, but they’re also not bland in any way.

    The concept looked great ……the production looks awful. Frumpy and dull. It’s like a 50 yr old menopausal divorcee.

  • TrevP

    I wonder if the new VW 3-row SUV’s interior will look similar to this…..?

    • Obsequious Lickspittle

      No, it’ll have a VW badge on the steering wheel…

    Pretty good looking car 🙂
