The new Skoda Kodiaq SUV has just made an official debut, and it has already introduced two new special editions to spice things up. At the Geneva Motor show, which is currently underway, Skoda unveiled its performance-derived SportLine and the rugged Scout.
The SportLine trim can be seen with the Corrida Red exterior color while its body has been improved significantly and the differences between this model and the regular Kodiaq are evident. This version brings more sculpted front end with some black details, more aggressive rear end while it sits on the new 19- and 20-inch wheels. In the cabin, there is a sporty theme with leather bucket seats.
On the other hand, there is the Kodiaq Scout which doesn’t sport the aggressive front fascia or the rear diffuser, but it has some other interesting characteristics. First of all, the Czech manufacturer included Off-Road Assist and the Driving Mode Select system through which the driver can choose different modes such as Eco, Comfort, Snow, Individual, Sport and Normal. Other unique features include wheels with authentic design and wood trim that is added on the dashboard.
Skoda offers three engine options which are the same for both vehicles. The first one is the entry-level 1.4-liter TSI that produces 150 horsepower, and it is followed by a 2.0-liter TSI good for 180 ponies. With the latter one, you can go from 0 to 60 mph in eight seconds. Skoda also wanted to make sure that a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter TDI that delivers 150 hp is included in the lineup.
Skoda Kodiaq Price
The prices for the Kodiaq SportLine and Scout haven’t been announced, but the base model in the lineup will go on sale from £21,495, and these special editions will certainly be more expensive. However, if you add every possible option, the price can reach up to £34,895. The deliveries of the new Skoda’s model will begin in April.
