Skoda Luxes Up Kodiaq With Range-Topping Laurin & Klement Edition

Skoda buyers looking for a more exclusive take on the Kodiaq can begin ordering the new Laurin & Klement model, priced from £35,945 ($47,330) in the UK.

The Laurin & Klement, named after the company’s two founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, replaces the Edition as the Kodiaq’s flagship version, boasting even more creature comforts, safety systems and overall technology than the latter.

Spending £35,945 on one will land you the L&K 2.0 TDI 150 PS 4×4 manual version, whereas £37,020 and £37,245 means getting the 2.0 TSI 190 PS 4×4 DSG and the 2.0 TDI 150 PS 4×4 DSG respectively. The most expensive version is the 2.0 TDI 190 PS 4×4 DSG, at £38,105.

Design-wise, the Kodiaq L&K is distinguished by a chrome grille, 19-inch Sirius alloys finished in anthracite, unique front and rear bumpers and body-colored under-door panels with distinctive L&K signature logos. Meanwhile, the interior features a standard panoramic roof, leather-trimmed seats, an L&K logo alongside the armrest, piano black surfaces, aluminum-trimmed pedals and ambient lighting.

As for tech, future owners will enjoy the Columbus infotainment system, Area view, progressive steering, curtain airbags, CANTON sound system and heated windscreen. According to Skoda, this new range-topper costs £2,550 more than the Edition model, even though the cost of the individual options fitted as standard would have otherwise set you back more than £3,000.

First deliveries for the Skoda Kodiaq Laurin & Klement are expected later this year.
