    Inspired by the Vision 7S concept that was previewed last year, the new Kodiaq adopts the 'Modern Solid' design philosophy. It looks more utilitarian and rugged and features squared-off wheel arches, a sculpted bonnet, a prominent hexagonal grille, and refreshed badging in a corporate font. For the first time, Skoda's new logo can be seen on a production car, and on the front end, there's an option for an LED light strip, similar to the electric Enyaq. The new Kodiaq has a 2,791mm wheelbase and is 61mm longer than its predecessor.

    The redesigned cockpit of the new Kodiaq shares similarities with the upcoming Skoda Superb. It is equipped with an optional head-up display, a 10-inch digital information display, and a 13-or 10-inch touchscreen. Three physical 'smart dials' have also been introduced, along with color displays. In terms of interior, you can choose from four different design packages, including sustainability-focused options for reducing the environmental impact of the SUV.

    The new Kodiaq SUV will be offered in turbo-petrol, diesel, mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, mated to either a front-wheel or an all-wheel drive setup. These engines are paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch or a 6-speed automatic transmission and produce impressive power outputs ranging from 150 hp to 204hp.
