Skoda has shared powertrain details and unveiled images of the second-generation Kodiaq SUV prior to its global debut. The upcoming Kodiaq will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, a 12.9-inch touchscreen, and updated exterior and interior designs.
The plug-in hybrid variant, named the Kodiaq iV, will combine a 150hp, 1.5-litre TSI engine with a 25.7kWh battery, producing a total output of 204hp. It will be paired with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and offer a range of over 100km. The entry-level Kodiaq will also be equipped with a 1.5 TSI engine, but with a mild-hybrid system and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Another petrol engine option will be available, featuring a 204hp, 2.0-liter TSI engine coupled with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. For diesel options, Skoda will offer two versions with a 2.0-litre TDI engine paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The entry-level diesel will generate 150hp, while the higher-spec variant will produce 193hp and include a four-wheel-drive system.
Regarding its design, the second-gen Kodiaq exhibits a partially camouflaged appearance, showcasing notable elements such as a redesigned grille with vertical slats, split headlamp design with matrix LED units, and a revised front bumper housing radar sensors. The glasshouse features an upward kink in the window line after the rear doors, and the D-pillar and tail-lights have been restyled.
In terms of dimensions, the second-generation Kodiaq is longer than its predecessor, with lengths of 4,758mm for the 5-seat version and 4,817mm for the 7-seat version. The width remains at 1,864mm, the height at 1,657mm, and the wheelbase at 2,791mm. Interior enhancements include a steering column-mounted drive selector, a 12.9-inch touchscreen, a heads-up display, and additional storage compartments for rear passengers. The new Skoda Kodiaq will continue to offer both 5-seat and 7-seat configurations.
