ŠKODA renewed the KODIAQ model, which was the first model that started the SUV offensive and achieved global success in a short time. Achieving to take KODIAQ's remarkable design further, ŠKODA developed its model belonging to the D-SUV segment in every aspect. The renewed KODIAQ Škoda model, since August, also will be sold in Turkey.
New look and new technologies
Representing the evolution of the brand's design language, the renewed KODIAQ stands out with a more emotional and confident design. With the updated hardware options, KODIAQ is equipped with aluminum effect design elements at the front and rear. With this design, the power and off-road style of the vehicle will be emphasized more.
In the redesigned front section of the KODIAQ, the upgraded hood and new ŠKODA grille further enhance the bold stance of the vehicle. In this large SUV model, LED headlights will be offered as standard, while the FULL LED headlight group will be offered with Matrix features. The narrower headlights stand out as a characteristic element of KODIAQ's stylish design.
The new alloy wheels enhance the vehicle's dynamic stance and appeal, while the redesigned front and rear bumpers, new glossy black rear spoiler and winglets on the sides of the rear windows reduce the KODIAQ's air friction and contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
In the renewed rear design, the third brake light is integrated with the spoiler, while the rear window is a little narrower. In this way, the dynamic appearance of the SUV was strengthened, while the stop lamp group was produced with a thinner and sharper design. The tail lights are striking with their crystalline design and the ŠKODA-specific C shape has also taken its place as usual.
