Škoda has just released the pricing and specs for the second-generation Kodiaq SUV in the UK. The new model has a bigger 910-liter boot, innovative Smart Dials, LED Matrix headlights, Turn and Remote Park Assist, and other features. Order books open on 10 April 2024.

The Kodiaq has become the benchmark for large family SUVs since its 2016 launch. Over 850,000 first-generation models have been delivered worldwide. The new Kodiaq offers five drivetrain choices, including a plug-in hybrid with an all-electric range of over 62 miles. Customers can choose between five- and seven-seater models with two trim grades available from launch. A new SportLine variant will join later.

The all-new Škoda Kodiaq has been completely redesigned. It features a Modern Solid design language, a revised logo, a wide air intake, a hexagonal grille, and a customizable LED strip. The new Kodiaq has a lower drag coefficient due to its aero-efficient features such as the sloping roofline, rear bumper, spoiler, and alloy wheels. The front of the car has a distinctive ‘four-eyed’ arrangement, with the topmost headlights featuring LED Matrix technology. The Flying Arrow light signature pays homage to the brand’s logo, and the headlight includes a design element called Crystallinium.


The new Kodiaq boasts a striking C-shaped light signature wrapping around the tailgate. It comes in a range of colours, including Bronx Gold metallic. The second-generation Kodiaq adopts Škoda’s design selections approach with two options: Loft for SE and ecoSuite for SE L, both featuring matching trims on the seat upholstery, door panels and decor.

The new Kodiaq is packed with features that enhance the overall experience. It comes with a 10.25-inch virtual cockpit, a 13-inch infotainment screen with satellite navigation, and wireless charging for two smartphones. The car also has three configurable Smart Dials that allow passengers to control ventilation, volume, and other comfort functions in the vehicle.

Passenger space and boot volume have both been increased in the new model. The five-seater model has a boot capacity of 910 litres with the rear seats upright and 2,105 litres with them folded. The seven-seater model has a boot capacity of 340 litres with all seats upright and 2,035 litres with them folded. Kodiaq iV models with the PHEV drivetrain can accommodate up to 745 litres of cargo with all seats up.

The new Kodiaq has four engine options – two petrol and two diesel. A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) engine will be launched later. The entry-level 1.5 TSI e-TEC 150PS has a mild hybrid system for enhanced efficiency, while the high-performance 2.0 TSI 204PS has all-wheel drive. For diesel customers, there’s a choice between a 2.0 TDI engine that produces 150PS and a more powerful version that generates 193PS and has all-wheel drive. The PHEV model has an electric-only driving range of up to 62 miles and can be charged via DC or AC charging. You can visit the Skoda website for more on this and the whole Skoda Range. Click HERE
