Skoda Kodiaq World – Exterior

The design of the Skoda Kodiaq takes inspiration from the Vision S SUV concept. It features Skoda’s signature styling elements. Up front, the new Kodiaq features sleek LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights and a chrome grille. The fog lamps are a bit unconventional in terms of placement and shape. In words of the manufacturer, the double horizontal lines running across the hood convey a sense of “protection and strength”. The highlight of the side profile is the greatly recessed tornado line that runs from the upper headlamps and runs across the entire profile. The large glass area visible in the Kodiaq’s side profile hints at generous cabin space. At the back, you get a typical Skoda boot lid profile with the recessed number plate area. The tail lamps feature LED detailing in the form of the signature ‘C’ motif design.

Skoda Kodiaq World – Interior

On the inside, designers have kept things simple yet elegant. You get a neat dashboard layout with clean straight lines. The touchscreen infotainment system takes centre stage. Below that, the climate control setup bears some resemblance to that of the Superb’s. Bits like the steering wheel and gear knob have been borrowed from the sedan as well. The 2017 Skoda Kodiaq will be a seven seater, a first for the manufacturer. Internationally, it is available with a five seat or seven seat configuration. World might get only the seven seat variant of the Kodiaq. Without the third row of seats, the Kodiaq boasts a massive 720 L luggage capacity. While the production spec Kodiaq ditches the individual screen setup seen in the Vision S concept, the rear seat passengers do get tablet holders.
